My Creative Journal has become my Art Journal
After reading Linda Lawrence's recent blog post about crayon therapy, and an intense discussion about creative development with Deb Batten, I have decided to incorporate parts of each discussion into my creative development. Linda talked about crayon therapy. I'm honestly not sure what that is, but today, I went to Walgreen's and bought some school supplies!
Oh, did these smell good! I bought the box of 64, and the colors in my box are amazing and very close to the colors of glass I now own. Hmmmm. Could this be coincidence?
I also bought some colored markers and colored pencils! Cool! This is my favorite time of year. I love school supplies!
I had a notebook at home, so I decided to use that one! Fun!
I already used my journal today, and I used my crayons. I decided to explore shape and decoration of those shapes.
As with glass, the colors took over, and the shapes became designs. This is page 1.
This is page 2, and I already feel better!
Thanks, Deb! Thanks, Linda. New directions for me! More updates on my art journal to follow. I need a rainy day!
