Enjoying the Process
No, the above art journal pages aren't mine. They belong to my friend Lisa, an amazingly talented woman who unselfishly shares her techniques and inspiration for the beautiful art work she does. I spent some time with her yesterday, watching her create journal pages. I witnessed first hand what creative play is all about. By watching her and listening to what she said as she thought out loud, I clearly understood what it meant to create freely, to play and simply enjoy the process.
I went home and created two pages using techniques she had shown me. I didn't think that much about what I was doing (I over think EVERYTHING!) and just went with the flow. I liked what I made, but that was just icing on the cake. I had fun and ultimately that was what mattered.
