I finished up the last 2 pages in the altered book journal I started last September. Both of this pages were found art. The images were in the background and I just brought them to life. Now onto focusing on another journal. Its funny that these are the last pages to be finished and yet they are the first pages you see when you open the book. I don't know why I skipped pages when I started the journal in the first place. I tend to skip all around and sometimes I find blank pages or backgrounds done in parts of the book I thought were already completed. Creativity is not a linear process and that is surely evident in the way I do my journals.
With the finishing pf this journal I came to a conclusion that you might find sort of silly but our minds work that way sometimes. You will rarely see hands in my journal pages. Now there is a reason for that and its because I don't draw them well. So I don't know what I was thinking, I know to do anything well you need to practice and if I never draw them I never will be comfortable doing them. So I am going to challenge myself to do those thing in art that I am avoiding. They include ears and hands.
Do you have anything in your art that you avoid doing?
