Paper Purge

IMG_5641

The purge has begun.  Today I tackled my paper stash.  I have been surrounded by boxes filled with plastic bags of various papers.  In my delusion I figured jumbo plastic bags would let me see everything better, but it was such a jumble that I could never find the vintage photos, or tissue papers, or hand-painted papers.  It was all a jumble of groups of papers from particular times in my cabinet, on my cabinet and on my shelves. Big Mess!!! What I got rid of:  Scrapbook paper of any … [Continue reading...]

Now that our farmhouse is almost done I’ve been thinking about doing a major purge in my brain about what I want to be creating and what no longer serves me.  And a major purge all over the house.  An after moving, gosh why did we bring that box of stuff purge.  To that event […]

Non-Verbal Communication

IMG_5511

The anatomy of a journal page, the bones, the guts is rarely what I expect.  It’s always a mystery this process of sorting information into visual form.  Most often the results are unexpected.  But I completely trust the process to lead me where I need to go even when it’s down through a dark tunnel […]

A tiny seaside cottage

By the sea, the new theme over at Art-Journal-journey is up. Thanks to Valerie and Susi  for hosting and Orange Esmeralda for the theme.  I needed a good play session in my journal, it’s been a hectic as ever week.  The idea of tiny cottages by the sea, or lake, or pond has always been […]

Back to my roots, sort of

Seeking the muse on a journey to the stars to bring me back deep into my roots, sort of…house projects have kept me from the studio.  Clutter kept me from creating but after some serious re-organization today I just moved into the journal with collage and glue stick and the muse took over.
