Thank you, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer - (cont'd)

Julie wrote an article in the Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors about blogging that hit a chord with me. I've had my blog for a long time, started out as a scrappy blog and eventually turned into a semi art journal, altered items, scrap-whenever, blog-whenever type blog. B O R I N G. And I know B O R I N G. I read a lot of blogs, especially art journal blogs, and I like them. Really like them. I don't like mine. That must be why I don't pay much attention to it.

So I'm taking Julie's advice and making some changes. I'm going to post more often and show more of what I'm doing. I'm committing my blog to art journaling because that's what I care about now, not scrapping. I've learned enough in the past two years to start sharing some knowledge instead of just posting a picture and saying "look what I did." I think at long last that I can give a bit more information about what I've done and what I've used. I'm learning from some of the best people out there, and I want to share that with you. All of it. You ready?
