Make no mistake, I love keeping a journal. I have years worth of journals, some with spines broken, some half filled, some with every page painted. I keep no specific rules about my journals, if I don’t like a drawing or spread, I feel no compunction to keeping it for posterity or the ability toContinue reading “Inspired Journaling”

Flashcard Friday-A Wash.

Flash Card Friday: Negative Space
It is once again Flash Card Friday, where I discuss techniques used in Dreaming From the Journal Page. I don’t know why, but for years I had a very hard time remembering what negative space was.

Please don’t feed the hipsters.
Once a week my Man and I walk up to our favorite coffee joint and help open it. And now, as the weather improves, I have begun to walk afterward. I love walking. I walk fast enough that you might call it running, I can’t slow it down. But when I bring my camera, thatContinue reading “Please don’t feed the hipsters.”
