Starting 2016 with something different
To try and help get my mojo back after so many months of crafty inactivity I joined Wanderlust 2016 classes and also a facebook challenge group called pick a stick. Below is the first piece of journaling I did this year. It was for the pick a stick challenge and the instructions are to do each piece on the page in order that the 10 sticks with the actions are drawn from the cup. This can be quite challenging, especially if you are like me and do not read/think ahead but charge in blind, literally following the directions in order. The one thing I did do was start with some colour on the page as it was a mop up from another activity, this was in a way restricting but it also forced me to focus on my options. If I did this page again one thing I would change is the direction of the journaling, I feel it should be horizontal or vertical but not written diagonally. This is all good, I learned something! I also learned that when I run out of texture paste I can use good old fashioned decorators filler, the sort that comes in a plastic tube!
