I think it's time I say it out loud. I am a Journal Addict, and I may need an intervention. Just when I think I've got too many journals going already but it's manageable, I accidentally started another one. I swear, it WAS an accident.
When those Strathmore visual journals came out, I bought two at Michael's (watercolor and mixed media). Being wary of hyped up products, I got the smaller 5 x 7 sizes, in case I didn't like them. Well, I did like them, and have worked in both off and on over the past couple of years, trying out techniques and making color charts on the pages. I've been wanting to go to a larger size, but for some reason my Michael's doesn't carry these anymore, in any size. They are pushing the next best whatever hyped up new stuff instead.
So, in ordering my grid journal for an online class and running across other journals on sale, I ended up ordering two 9x12 Strathmore journals (again, I had to get one of each--watercolor and mixed media), you know, for later. That's how I ended up making the stars & stripes page in my last post. I was anxious to work on a 9x12 size to see how I liked it. I liked it so much, I played some more in it with what you'll see below, thus being now fully committed to another journal playground where I'll try out new techniques.
That (above) is the long version. The short version is: "Hey, look what I did." (below)
There are more steps to this process, more things to add to the page. But I haven't gotten that far yet. For now, I'm just floundering and wondering what to do next...
