I decided that I wanted to journal using a program, that provides daily prompts- so I signed up for Lisa Sonora’s at http://www.lisasonora.com- you get 30 days of prompts via Email / Facebook or her blog
I have really enjoyed the discipline and someone else inspiring me to think through the process of art making
My first 9 days of journal pages -I like building up layers – I use old books and prepare pages – using lots of different papers and left over paint. Then I doodle and layer with more paper, stencil acrylic paint and images . My favourite way to add text is to use letters cut from magazines.
Day 1 – Daring to begin
Day 4 – The cost of perfection – seize the day
The prompt today was about self consciousness and bravery .I like art making and earning money by exhibiting – but I dislike getting my work exhibition ready , organising publicity and private views. I always feel so exposed . I used up old flyers on the next few pages – reminding my self of when I have been brave in the past . I think the course is good for me – I have signed up for another exhibition in March …..
