The Intersection of Everything Artsy

a pair of pages from the 8.25x5.5" exacompta journal; acrylics, neocolors, pitt pen, collage, gellyrolls

I feel like I've made a huge discovery. I can put everything together, the doodles, the painting, the drawing, the quirky stuff, the quotes. It doesn't have to live separately.

The idea behind the journaling - explore the possibilities - free your mind, and the rest will follow. But I don't know how to clear my mind. It's in chaos sometimes. Well, most of the time. The creative ideas intermingled with all of the junk I should be doing that I don't want to do {translation: cleaning, shopping, pruning, deciding}. How do you strike a balance? How do you clear your mind?
