When I'm creatively "stuck" I sometimes view some YouTube videos and that seems to provide the inspiration I need.
Lately, I've been viewing BB Henry Art 's 5 minute art journal videos. I love that they are short (who really has the time to view an hour video????) and I find them good as a starting point for my own interpretation of the page. Of course, no one can exactly copy someone else's work (who would want to do that anyway?) but I find it's just a great jumping off place for me.
I'm working on mixed media pages measuring 10" x 5" so the "book" will end up as a 5" square. I enjoy working on loose pages so if something doesn't turn out, I can throw it away and it won't end up in the final book.
I'm still figuring out how to "bind" these pages into a book. They can't be sewn into a traditional binding since the backs of these pages are white and I would lose the ideas that these pages are spreads -- meant to be seen together. Oh well, that's what art is all about. Solving problems!
