Just had a fellow artist/student ask why she was having so much trouble journaling on her beautiful pages... these were my words to her.
Don't be so hard on yourself little grasshopper.
Try lists instead of sentences.
Start a page for each letter in the alphabet,
add a few words, cut them out of magazines or newspaper, practice your calligraphy.
Skip a page if you can't think of anything right away
and go back to that letter/page when you think of additional words for that page.
Your pages are finished and beautiful so you are thinking your words have to be finished and beautiful - but like the many layers of color and texture on the pages, your words can build up layer by layer too.
Goodness - that sounds like so much fun ... I think I will do that myself!!!!!
