So sometimes what motivates me isn't a success, it's a failure. You see, I made the art journal above and the journal box for a workshop class proposal. It was my second take on the journal in a box idea (the first one didn't make the art retreat workshop cut either), so I was a bit disheartened when I found out that I wouldn't be teaching this class. So how does that motivate me? Well, now I'm determined to use the dickens out of this sweet little journal. All of the recent doodles I've posted have been in this little journal, and I love it more and more. I guess this is another one of my "find your happy place" moments... I don't like for a good thing to go sour because of something out of my control, so I try to find a way to make it happy (or at least happier) so I can feel better about it.
