Trying to Finish Up So I Can Start Something New

The end of this "Scraps" journal is dragging on a bit as my studio time gets squeezed by other art projects (homework for an online class and prep for an upcoming show) and general everyday life business.  In my experience, it actually isn't that uncommon for the beginning work in a new journal to progress like wildfire and by the end, for that same work to feel like swimming in quicksand.  However, I already have enough unfinished journals on my shelves; I am determined not to add another to the stack.
