One of the questions that I am asked most often is how am I able to journal every day? Where do I find my ideas? How do I know what to write?
As I've said in the past, I rarely sit down with any preconceived ideas unless I'm feeling very emotional. I make the time to journal every single day even if it's only for a few minutes. I open my book and start flipping through my collage pile to find what appeals to me most at that moment. I go from there depending upon how I am feeling and what I feel like saying.
I am able to do so many pages because I feel like I am barely scratching the surface of me. I want to go deeper and see what evolves. I make my pages to push myself and to see what I can unravel and if those discoveries will help me to grow as a person and an artist. I don't do this to keep myself busy. I don't call it a craft. It's something I am compelled to do. It's a part of me.
