I've been back in Wiltshire and away from Skye inspiration for a little while now - and about to go into hospital - so I need a portable form of being creative. I was lucky enough to receive a book on art journaling for Christmas (No Excuses Art Journaling by Gina Rossi Armfield) and thought this was the ideal opportunity to start to explore it. The suggested exercises include choosing a daily colour and word, creating a pattern (I select two or three zentangles to put together) and do a weather sketch. There are weekly and monthly tasks too which develop one's mind and art skills in various ways.
It's early days but it's simply lovely to experiment and stretch the creative muscles in an accessible structure :)
