a peek inside my art journal: fast and messy pages

My life is really busy right now and even though art is my job, I always like to work on things that nobody will ever see! Taking time to experiment, practice and play in my sketchbook and art journal is a really important way that I stay inspired. But when I am busy, it can be a challenge making time in to create for myself. 

When my schedule gets hectic, I like to fall back on the things that keep me inspired- simple, colorful and messy techniques. Typically this process happens in my art journal and instead of taking lots of time working on a page, I give myself 10-15 minutes to fill a couple pages with color. I use swipes of color, expressive painting, finger painting, free writing and fast doodling to fill a surface. These colorful pages become the background and the first of many layers.
