Just in case everyone is getting weary of index card art (what an absurd notion! lol), I'm switching gears for a few days and featuring some recent journal pages. I think most of my initial following arrived here at Lost Coast Post because of my journal page postings but it dawned on me that I haven't shown any journaling work in quite a while. I journal every day so it isn't that I don't have stuff to share. In reality, I was feeling tired of sharing my pages. When I began this blog, I posted virtually every single page I completed. However, I journal for me and I began to feel like sharing absolutely every thing I created took a bit of power away from the finished product. I take time now to live with my creations, to appreciate the messages they reveal, to reflect on lessons learned, and to let the work evolve as it desires without the added pressure of wondering whether the Internet world will like it, judge it, copy it, pin it, comment on it and so on. The minute I give any of those thoughts the time of day, I lose sight of why I journal in the first place.
