Years ago, from a very special friend, I was given a beautiful book, covered in soft purple fabric, tied with gold ribbon and full of empty pages. I've loved this book over the years. But I've never used it..... never known exactly what to use it for.... always knew a beautiful book like this had to be saved for something wonderful.
A fellow artist relayed to me a suggestion she had heard. `Spend at least one day a week working in a style that you don`t normally work. Create with different mediums, designs, and techniques` What a great idea! I have mulled over that suggestion for months and have now found the perfect book to journal each of these `play times` in.
I anticipate this book will become thick with texture, heavy with creative juice, and worn with paint-covered fingers.... an artist dream. I encourage you to find an empty book, pull out your unused paint supplies, and follow along, as I delve into the unknown.
Do you currently keep a creative journal? Do share your story! :)
