I've been working on this little page since Halloween (hence the "Thurs 31") and I think it is finally done. I used to sit down and begin a page from a blank background, developing layer after layer in a single, grueling session until the page was complete. With this journal (and probably all future journals), I create a bunch of backgrounds over the course of a few days and then I cycle back around and add bits here & there to pages as my whim dictates. This continues for another several days and then I suddenly have two or three spreads complete all at once. The results feel more loose and serendipitous than my previous work. I like that a lot!
