first spread

The first spread of pages in my sketchbook project . . .


Both sides are fabric pieces I did, glued to the pages. I somehow feel this project is just showing me what to do. I was not planning on journaling! I have never kept an artist journal. It just seemed like I needed to write for this project and so that is what I did. Who knows what will come next? I received comments about being brave to start with my covers for this project . . . Truthfully, I felt I needed to do that and I also wanted to do that to 'set the stage' so to speak, to get me started with this project. For me, getting started is making myself jump in. Once I jump, I do not worry, I just swim! Does that sound silly? Well, it is the truth for me. How about you? How do you get geared up to create? I'd love to hear!
