A Little Lost (BlogAlong day 21/30)

I've started on the next Life Book lesson, but I really don't know what I'm doing. This is supposed to be a sort of free-flowing, child-like activity, with a bunny (or other critter of some sort) as a focal point. I've just been working on the background thus far. I'm having trouble just letting it all go, though I guess it's good that I've been doodling with no end point in mind. I'm not planning ahead, and that's a big deal for me.
I like the teacher's page, and it's far removed from whatever my style may be. I'm still so new to art journaling, that I don't think I have a style yet - I've just been adding techniques to my repertoire.
 
I will continue to add to this after work tomorrow, unless it's another day of dysfunction in the ER like today was. It's hard to make art with the events of the day bouncing around my brain. Maybe I need to go pour myself a glass of wine or something.

I really love that background, Deanna! Can't wait to see where it takes you. xo

I am new to art journaling too. I don't feel I really have a style either. I think what you just said about adding techniques to your repertoire is soo what I am doing. I hadn't realized it till now. I felt like I was just floundering around. But I think you are right. We just need more time and we will find our style. :-)

Thanks, everyone! It finally came together in the end. Not knowing what the final piece will look like has been an interesting experience. Just letting it happen...
