Words....There's Just Too Many of Them!
My goal for 2012 is to DO Art Journaling....not just read about it or consider doing it....but to actually do some type of journaling everyday. I've been reading about the creative life of artists that I admire and they all do some type of journaling, sketchbooks or a combination of the two. They all say the same thing, that keeping these personal journals or workbooks has helped them immensely in evolving as an artist. Ok, I'm hooked, I can do that, right? Sure...yeah...right....until it comes to the words....what do I want to say, am I saying it correctly, do I really want to put that on paper and chance someone reading it? Blah. That's when I came to the conclusion that there's just too many words and I just can't handle the pressure! Then I came across Effy Wild's BookofDays2012 project, it's a free yearlong workshop based on ONE WORD you choose for 2012. One word? Now that's a journal I can do. My word for 2012 is....BLOOM! xo
