I seem to have come to a temporary full stop, artwise. No motivation to finish all the things I've got on the go, so I've temporarily put them away. The reason is probably that I have been working on things without a break for the last two years, and didn't even stop over the two Xmas breaks, so I've just run out of steam. Time for recess. This last week I did nothing except read, and help my daughter with sewing knitted squares together for a blanket. I'm giving myself a full two weeks off. I'm not stopping myself thinking about projects entirely, but won't let myself take any notes. If I forget what I thought of this week, well, I'll think of something else. I had to journal about it to find out why I'd lost my motivation - I do that about all sorts of things because I find journaling helps me find out what I'm really thinking, feeling or imagining back there on the backburner. Sometimes I find thoughts I didn't know I had in my conscious life. Fascinating! Can't do without journaling.
This page is from a journal I made from an altered book found in an op shop. I was using a linoblock I made on a white painted page. I was exploring using the same linoblock in different colours in a journal about birds.
