Rules Schmules or… New Art Journal Page

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

Are you guys also covered over the ears with stuff to do ? I bet you are. Crazzzzyyy times. At least a new Art Journal Page

I was checking out a color combination in my art journal for a CHA Project – I love the blue, purple and vibrant green.

The Quote by Claude Debussy reads: Works of art make rules, rules do not make works of art!

That is why I enjoy art journaling so much. Don’t get me wrong…working on CHA Projects with super-secret-not-yet-revealed-stuff is super fun…but there are also a LOT of rules. What you can use, what you can combine, what you can make, how big, how small… etc. And that is why this quote came back to my mind…so time to throw it in my art journal and move on ;) Get these projects done…oh…and CJS14…and Christmas Shopping and …Cleaning of the house… I bet you can relate :)

In any event- I hope you have a couple minutes to do something creative and play! Take them :)))))

Have a wonderful weekend!

    You are so right with this quote! When I have to make something with a lot of rules, my inspiration flys out of the window…and I sit there thinking about what am I allowed to use and what not? But he…there is always the art journal to loose frustration ;)

    What a perfect quote for this time of year! Running, running out of time, running round in circles! No time for creativity—-but that makes Dec. 29, when everyone leaves and I can kick back, so much sweeter! For me, January is total crafty time!
    And I love that color combo!
    Have a very merry Christmas, Nat—your very first living here in the States!

    I am up to my ears in wrapping presents right now.
    I love the blue and purple together and only recently have added this neon green to the mix. I like it and so does my 11-year-old son.
    I can only imagine just how busy you are right now Nat.
    “New” country, CJS 2014, CHA and all the rest.
    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you and yours.
