Just some layouts awaiting more layers. I end up making more backgrounds than finished layouts. Often times I see such complicated layouts and layers upon layers of art journaling elements on other people’s art journaling pages. I get a bit intimidated.
Art journaling involves a bit of risk. Which means I need to break out of my timidity and not be afraid to mess up a layout. I have loads of ephemera I’m just dying to use…but then I get afraid to use it. I’ve seen some really good art journaling pages, and some others that the elements seem so out of place. My inner perfectionist is at war sometimes with my inner artist.
I found this great quote on someone’s art journal. I like it a lot.
“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working”
