Journals and Creativity
I have been trying to expand my quilting into more art quilts. Someone suggested doing small postcard quilts. I have started two. One using fabric and stamping with paint. One using felted fabric and felting. Next time I blog, I will put in the "in process" postcards. They are still in process because I am so worried about being creative that I can't finish.
One other suggestion was to start an art journal. Which I am going to try. I love going to other blogs and seeing sketches with notation, ect. However, I do not sketch. So I am going to have to try something different.
I made an art journal a few years ago but very little has gone in it. I plan on pulling it our and starting again. And since I can't sketch...I plan on making paper quilt ideas and taking photos. Wish me luck.
Here are some of my paper quilt ideas...many that will never go beyond this journal.
One well-known author recorded “ideas, images, quotations hastily jotted down for possible future use… for the most part they are merely suggestions or random impressions designed to set the memory or imagination working. Their sources are various—dreams, things read, casual incidents, idle conceptions, and so on…”
Do you journal using a blog, letters, or a journal?
Do you have a current art journal?
Why do you journal?
