Meet the Quirky Girls

“The artist is a collector of things imaginary or real. He accumulates things with the same enthusiasm that a little boy stuffs his pockets. The scrap heap and the museum are embraced with equal curiosity. He takes snapshots, makes notes and records impressions on tablecloths or newspapers, on backs of envelopes or matchbooks. Why one thing and not another is part of the mystery, but he is omnivorous.”
Paul Rand

this is the background for the girl below

Meet some of the girls from my altered book art journal called the Noticing Journal. Can you believe the book is overflowing with paint and drips and startin to fall apart? I created the girls using techniques I share in the Museum of Simple Things art journaling {and painting} workshop. I'm really getting into painting with golden fluid and  airbrush acrylics and using various mediums.

Fun to make the paint move in new ways and to experiment.

You don't have to write on your pages. You don't have to collage stuff to your pages. You don't have to paint on your pages. You don't have to.... fill in the blank. It's a journal. A collection of paper for experimenting. That's all. So unstructured, yet so important.

How many minutes have you spent on your creativity today?
