I have a love/hate relationship with multi-layer art journaling. My current theory is that my difficulties stem from an inability to turn off my left brain - the side that asks "What next? Isn't there something better?" and the side where my Inner Critic lives. OK, lets be frank here: the side where my Inner Critic holds loud obnoxious parties.
When heat forced me out of my attic studio/office, I put together a journaling bag and began what might be my last foray into this journaling style. To begin, I'm finishing a few pages. I find that I'm enjoying it as long as I can turn off that left brain. Drugs may be required.
