About Journal Spilling

This blog is dedicated to anyone who would like to try their hand at Art Journaling. It is a magical and powerful journey.

If you think “I can’t.” I am here to see you through. Because all you really need is “I want to.” You don’t need to be good at art. This isn’t about making art for sale or viewing. It’s about using art materials to make colorful, messy art journal pages. Was something revealed along the way? Or maybe it was just fun. 

And that’s fine.

Watch this space.

My Fabulous Sisters

Several years ago, I bought three journals. One for myself and each of my two sisters. We have been (with great pauses in between) writing in them and sending them on. They all just landed on my doorstep.
An inside look at them and us together. It is not something that has a deadline. It is just us being us. Together across the country.

Plenty of Time

Slowing down because I've decided to embrace the idea that time is plentiful and there is more than enough. While taking Jude Hill's class this winter, a need for a new bathroom curtain cropped up. An old linen tablecloth was found in the stash. Strips were ripped and woven into the tablecloth and now begins the pleasure of handstitching every strip into place. Doodling and mending with needle and thread, handling the cloth. Some may say laborious. It's all a matter of perspective.

I'm deep into cracking the code over on Typepad. I'll try to keep to my usual blogging schedule in the meantime. Soon, hopefully, I'll be moving.

Tape! Nudge 28

Get out your tape! I found a page from a previous Nudge that had been gesso'd and portfolio'd and added some sketches I made with washi tape from Pretty Tape over at Etsy. The washi tape is translucent, so I added a couple of layers. You could use any kind of tape: masking, duct, paper, fabric. Glued-up strips of paper. Use it as a stencil or a fastener. Use it as a tab.
Have some sticky fun!
