I decided to take part in Lisa Sonora's #30dayjournal project again this year. I'm learning that a daily artistic practice is very difficult to stick to. Especially when it isn't something that comes from my own design. It's a process of stretching myself to combine words and thoughts with visual arts media. I have a sketch book and I have done several different journaling techniques, but this project combines the two into a visual journal.
I'm experimenting with collage painting, and mixing wax based medium with watercolor pens and a dash of acrylic paint.
This is supposed to be a 30 day process. I'm on day 19 and 4 months in. I've given myself permission to take all the time I need to process and fully absorb the content of the quotes, then move forward with creating each page from a place of authenticity. So far I have confronted a few gremlins I have been ignoring for a while, enjoyed the creative time and I remain curious and open to what this project might open up in my creative life.
