I gleefully unwrapped a new blank book last week to kick off my art journal resolution. I am a sucker for journals, and I have all sizes, shapes, and paper types. I thought this one would be perfect, but when I tried to watercolor my illustration, my pages warped and wrinkled, and the color bled through.
I can’t decide whether to continue in this book, or switch to a book with thicker pages. I have let this quandary, plus my inability to locate my prismacolors, keep me from moving forward. Well, that and an extremely difficult few weeks of kid behavior.
How do you keep yourself on task when life feels unbearably hard?
