This is the second spread in my mixed up spiral art journal. Still not crazy about the spirals, but I'm determined to make it work. For you art journalers out there, what type of journal do you like to work in most?
If I remember correctly, I got the quote stamp I used in this spread from my friend Cristi: "Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art." (Sorry, the English teacher in me had to add that comma.) It got me to thinking, though. I think the opposite can be true for those of us with creative spirits, those who need that creative space to breathe. I often see it as: "Where the hand does not work with art, there is no spirit." I hope Leonardo doesn't haunt me for altering his quote, but I think this is very true for me. Finding time to play with paint and paper or beads and wire or my trusty Nikon and a willing subject feeds my soul. How about you? What feeds your soul?
