Do you do morning pages from The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron? I do & I often use my morning pages in my art. I use a handful of paint pens and just write, especially when I am feeling stuck. That became my base for this art journal page. Here is a video showing how I did the first part of this page.
I just started smearing paint on it making some circles. As I looked at them I saw heads – heads full of chaos- just the way my head feels on way too many days!
I added a bit more paint and carved more circles into the paint.
The chaos in my head- all things I want to do, all the things I need to do, all the things I should do, and all the things I haven’t done- were just swirling around. I realized that what I needed to do was just breathe. Just take a moment and breathe. So simple and so powerful.
