I am a note taker, list maker and doodling fool. I make a new "to do" list every day, so I need lots of paper and pens. The covers on some of the datebooks, planners and journals I purchase for my list making habit are very durable. Since I never throw them away I decided to begin using them as an experimental art journal.
I also have quite a collection of napkins, thanks to a fellow artist friend. The thought on this experimental journal is to use napkins on each page as the starting point, add lots of acrylic paint, stenciling, oil pastels and maybe a little India Ink to see if I could create some small pieces to use as a source of inspiration for larger art works. I try to do one a day and it has been such an informative exercise......new color combinations and practice with a pointed pen and ink have brought lots of inspiration!!
