Open Thread: 36 hours

Let's shake things up a little bit! I miss the interactive nature of blogging, so it's time to turn the tables and hear what is on your mind. For the next 36 hours, I'll take your questions in the comments and respond {in the comment section, which is now interactive, so I'll add the response just under the question}. It may take a few days to respond to everything, but I am looking forward to the challenge. Please pop back in a day or two to see the response, as I won't be able to answer personally via email.

Plus I needed an excuse to post a few photographs from our Italy trip a few years ago.

Ask questions about art journaling, mandalas, doodling, sewing paper, watercolor, acrylic, collage, etc. I'm also open to topics like creative prompts, perfectionism, getting started, storing journal pages, books, photographing art, blogging, doing art with kids {up to age 15, that's my knowledge base}, montessori, organizing art materials, doing art without a studio, index card art, doing art while traveling... whatever else you think I might be able to talk about!

I'm also curious to know what you would like to "see" at Daisy Yellow. Blogging continues to change. It seems like readers are interested in "how" to do things and not so much in my ramblings and random bits of art that I post. Without comments, it is very difficult to gage interest.

Please know that I am not qualified to discuss inquiries about sunglasses, disco music, astrology, religion, making blintzes or anything requiring coordination.

For Photoshop questions, I suggest Scott Kelby's Adobe Photoshop CS6 but I can try to respond to basic PS questions as long as screenshots are not required.

You'll find info about getting started in art journaling at Art Journaling 101.

The thread closes late Thursday night and I'll respond to as many questions as I can. I reserve the right to delete any question too personal, obnoxious or irrelevant...  or stuff I don't feel comfy writing about. 

Editor's Note: I am having so much fun responding to your questions. They are challenging me to think about how I do stuff, about my art, and about my process... in different ways. Keep 'em coming!  By the way, you can "respond" back to me by hovering your mouse at the top right corner of the comment box where you'll see three little icons. There's a flag {to flag inappropriate comments for me to review}, a heart {to like the comment} and a curved arrow {to reply to the comment}.
