Sometimes I'll stamp or scribble ahead of myself in my journal. Just a little bit of this or that and it gives me a jumping off point on a later page. I don't know that there is any less time involved working smaller. But that's not the point.

I've been sinking into a schedule of watercoloring, art journaling, cards. There are days when I can't stand to be away from my watercolors for a another minute. Even f it's only 10 minutes, I have to see the colors spreading and mingling together. It's like an addiction. Today, as soon as this post is written, I'll be recording a swatch video and talking about what I've been up to.
I've got a bucket full of sumac flowers that could be turned into dye and some Passionfruit tea (the heartburn that stuff gave me, oy). My brain is whirring. That seems to be reflected in this journal page.
I used a lot of different media on this spread. I go through the book and put smears of whatever media I'm using here and there. Like a trail of birdseed.
Those stickers from I-Don't-Know-Where have been hanging around for a while. They got spritzed with color at some point. I have no problem trimming away the words to fit my needs.
Do you write in your journals? Some pages just call out for some text, no matter how cryptic. It doesn't always make sense to me. And it's just now while writing this and looking at it that the text is ringing true. Intuitive art journaling works that way.
It's not easy to let yourself go.
