…as I think about the new year ahead, I want to propose that we set aside chunks of time, big chunks, and give ourselves mental space, forgiving mental space, to wrestle with this fear. Start something new, with a fresh sheet of paper and a different set of materials. Let’s not just make what we’ve always made, what is easy, what is popular. Let’s make something new.
It’s a new year! Wow, another one. 365 days of creativity and new experiences! I think it will be a good one. I’m full of hope and expectations, as always at this time of the year! I ended the previous year (2012) by drawing in my hand bound art journal (filled with mostly watercolor paper). I drew a bluebird, the symbol of happiness.
Today I started the year with a quick art journaling idea on loose paper. I cut out the numbers 2 0 1 3 and glued them down. Doesn’t it just look awesome? This reminds me of the I am magic page I did once, also with cut-out-letters. I need to remember to do this more, it’s super fun and easy!
Are you joining me in the 365 in 2013 challenge? I hope so, the more the merrier! I’ve done two collages today and will scan them later.
But now that I’ve had some time to think about this project I realize I was crazy to proclaim it, but now it’s too late. So I’ll just close my eyes and join the ride!
