On the weekend I purchased an old book for the bargain price of 10c to become and art journal and start some of the exercises in the "The Art Journal Workshop". There are a couple of exercised that I really want to do soon. One is called Purge and reading through it I realised I do have some baggage that I need to purge. Though I have to admit that all the thinking about doing the exercise has lessened the urgent need to do it right now. I am probably over the things that were eating at me a couple of weeks ago but it will be good to articulate the feelings in the written word and then finish the exercise.
"Creative Doodling and Beyond" only arrived on Tuesday and I haven't really had a chance to read through but a quick flip through has promised lots of doodling inspiration and from that hopefully lots of stitching inspiration.
I love the Apronology publication, I don't know why I just do. There are usually no actual patterns, just basic instructions or tips to create the aprons which are usually types of wearable art. I think my love for this magazine probably stems from my Nan who always wore her apron which was neck to knee, button at the back affair to keep her clothes clean while she did the housework, cooked and whatever. Probably should have learned from that when I look at the washing at the end of the week and I have various recipes splash across the front of whatever I have worn.
