In the BIG Journal


Here is another entry in the big journal. I still have a little space on the left hand page for a little more journaling but basically this spread is complete. I have used lots of things; stamps, collage of my lettering and art, magazines, Zigs and punchanella. I like using all the stuff. It makes me not feel so bad about...all the stuff! I am still trying to do some sketching and I did sketch my laptop. I try and make myself sketch every day but unfortunately it doesn't happen everyday mainly just because I don't want to. Sketching is hard for me.

I love your journal pages and your raw honesty about sketching. I signed up for the Sketchbook class and even went and purchased pencils and a new sketchbook...and I stare at it. I used to sketch for hours every day when I was younger. Then I had kids and started teaching and...stopped. It's hard for me to do what used to come so easily...why? (Like your lori stamp, too, Martha!!)

Another gorgeous page Martha!! I'm glad to know you've been sketching, It's near and dear to my heart as you know. I can tell you it gets easier the more you do it. Practice is Progress! You can quote me on that LOL! Meanwhile your painting, journaling, lettering is all breathtaking!

You just never cease to inspire or amaze me. You must be SO proud when a spread is finished. This is wonderful!

p.s. sketching is hard for me too!

i love these big juicy pages Martha. i still have a block when it comes to actually "writing" on my pages! maybe i'll get there. and i'd love to sketch more too. one of my goals for this year is to carry with me a small watercolor sketchbook, some pencils and a travel watercolor set to play with. i just ordered the sakura travel watercolor set from dick blick so i'm just waiting for it to arrive! you provide me so much inspiration!

I always love your work, but these pages in the BIG journal are awesome! Wish I could afford to take your class. I treated myself to some kuretake calligraphy pens towards the end of last year and want to get some of the brush markers too.
