I’ve been out of the studio for oh, 8-9 days now. Family camping trip – so fun! How to keep that creativity going while out on the road? I brought along my art journal! Here you see it in the Crescent City redwoods. I did three types of exercises, NO finished pages:
1. Write one word then doodle from the letters
2. draw what is in front of me without looking at the paper
3. Only sketch the general shapes using only a black pen
All SUPER challenging, but also no expectations and it went really well! Much fun as the break from work and real world was – it’s good to be home. I’m off to catch up on emails and work on future happenings… stay tuned…

I love it!! you continue to inspire even while out on a camping trip. I so look forward to reading your blog. My friend has a ScanNcut and I TRY TO CAPTURE PICTURES OF YOUR SAMPLES AND THE DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO DO WHATEVER YOU ARE SHOWING – I’m SO AMAZED BY THE MACHINE I’m TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY FOR me TO GET ONE – I HAVE 2 CRICUTS AND THEY ARE LOVELY BUT THE sCANnCUT SEEMS TO BE EVEN better THAN THE CRICUT IN EVERY WAY!!
yOU ARE VERY GENEROUS WITH YOUR TUTORIALS. tHANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR KNOWLEDGE AS WELL YOUR TALENTS!
Sorry for the caps – I noticed while typing my comment that they were italicized and lower case so I must have hit the caps lock by accident…. 🙁
May, i love the journal cover! I never even thought to decorate mine, but now it is on my to do list.
What a fun idea!
Do you keep an actual journal when you are on a trip? Like notes of what you did each day? I do this, just in a plain old notebook and it really helps with my scrapbook journaling when I get home.
