Finished my gallery sitting for the day, and am home with a studio space full of copper, paint, paper, prints needing finishing, and pretty much no space. Ugh! Must. Clean. Up.
Anyway, the other night I was researching some new acrylic techniques and got sucked into Youtube videos. It's insane how much time you can spend there, just looking and looking...and looking....
Anyway I found what I was looking for, but then I started seeing all these videos on art journalling. It's fun to see someone else's process, that's for sure!
(how do I insert videos, I was going to put some here....poop)
But one of the things I kept asking myself was, do these journals serve a purpose other than to paint into a journal? Meaning, do they get looked at again, or do they get shut away? I suppose they are just like any artist's notebooks - you work on them for pure pleasure, inspiration, etc.
I love some of these videos, but some of them look like blatant advertisements for one of the big chain art stores!
Anyway, got a package from Petra of Scorched Earth today (Happy Day!!!), so am off to play. :)
