A new Art Journal spread,
watercolor, hand-carved and commercial stamps,
and Sharpie marker.
This spread was indirectly inspired
by visiting my friend Marlynn's blog,
Honeysuckle Breeze. She has been organizing,
straightening, and purging in her studio.
She mentioned watching the TV show
'Hoarders,' which I don't receive on my TV,
but after watching an episode on-line,
I really got motivated to start cleaning!
This spread was completed
after sorting through a stash of scraps
and magazine clippings.
I find it difficult to discard even the tiniest
piece of painted paper, because of the potential
that I see in it! The above tiny collage measures
1 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches, and is
located on the bottom left of the spread.
I did, however, throw away a lot of
magazine clippings, as I have resolved
to use my own drawings, images, and prints
as much as possible in my collages. I still have
a long way to go, but feel as though
I made a little progress!
