Get your journal on in a composition book!

I have been so consumed working in a composition book as my new art journal! Fear is such a terrible thing, just by removing the fear of "messing up my good journal" I was able to cut loose in a cheap composition book which are not only fun to decorate but also powerful in leading me to be open, honest and real. I have learned and stretched my creativity by just completely letting go, playing and doodling. I started drawing these funny and whimsical faces and I love them! I have been creating and playing with these faces in my journal and now I am expanding to canvas. My comp book is my journal, sketchbook, diary, scrapbook all rolled into one and really reflects me and my style. I have had so much fun I have created covers for my next few books that are waiting to be filled. There is definitely going to be a whole lot of journaling going on at this camp! There is also a comp journal group on yahoo you can check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CompositionArtJournals and a flickr group at http://www.flickr.com/groups/composition_book_art_journals/ Go for it, get your journal on!
