I've done it again. Today I bought an old book for 50 cents to repurpose as an art journal. I took the book home, and added gesso to a couple pages.
I'm sick and kind of depressed. I figured I would use the book to test out mediums and ideas. Since I don't feel confident in my painting abilities, I figured it wouldn't come out well. This happens to me every time.
If I'm using nice paper, it doesn't work out, but if I'm using junk, I love it.
I guess I'm just going to embrace the gesso and keep trying on the junk till I feel more confident?
Good grief I miss you my friend. Please write soon and send me some photos.
P.S. I've been watching lessons on YouTube by Tamara Laporte.
