Free Your Creativity: ARTmournal …eh artjournal

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in General Announcements

If you missed why I call an Art Journal – ARTmournal: check this post

My ARTmournal has been a great way the last couple of weeks to keep me sane- LOL. And it helped tremendously in decisions for projects for CHA. It is just so freeing to play in the journal and combining it with different other things like new media (yum yum yum…..will talk more about this new treasure soon), techniques, colors, thoughts.

and it is so forgiving because it is what it is – a journal – if I do not like what I did- I can always cover it up again …

and do something else….

Makes some fun 10 minutes a day,  and helps to get some play- and me-time:

Preparing me for the big project.Calming me down. Taking away the fear of the blank page. Getting my thoughts and emotions articulated.

And that about sums it up for me now why doing an ARTjournal/mournal .

Try it :)

Have an amazing and wonderful day…I’m off to tackle my printer…that guy is in TROUBLE ! LOL

    I thought of your next years project HA. Tell us ways to stop collecting inspiration from Pinterest and start producing! Now that would be like throwing away all those magazines I have saved because I might use the article one day and making room to create. HELP, please.

    So cool. Just watched your jump start videos. Great to be reminded to look outside for inspiration, but especially good to see how you turned that inspiration into a practical project. Thanks for all the work you have done to create this wonderful month :-)
