*Action* ~ *Because* ~ *Clearly*

I fell behind on my ABC's Of Me Art Journal but got all caught up in a day. Whew! It looks so easy when they do it on you tube. I wish I could fast forward myself like they do! I am still very out of my element and comfort zone. Mixing and blending. Layering and techniquing. I have one picture in my mind but what turns out on the paper is no where near close to what I see in my head. If only I could translate it the way I wanted, I would be much happier with the results. Luckily, "C" was just released yesterday, so I have two weeks to come up with a concept for "D" before I have to create it.
In the meantime, I am still trying to follow my goal towards using my stash. Because the supplies I used were minimal, I am not going to be counting my art journal pages in the total. I have to confess though, I did buy some goodies BUT (and I will stand by my but!), they were purchased as an exchange for something I had already bought so ... no money changed hands. A perfect validation, if you ask me. I spent part of Sunday looking at CHA '09 stuff with St├ęphanie and, well ... I need to create, create, create. There are some yum-a-liscious things being released so, hopefully, I won't be too far under my goal and can still get them not too long after they start arriving. My saving grace will be Becky Fleck's Pagemaps ... you can count on that!
