I mentioned in a previous post that I was using stencils and stamps less. I want more of my own hand. I think pulling back from using something one relays on a lot is a good discipline. In life as well as in art. Not that we don't incorporate them in again, but it's good to not be dependent on them.
I am finding that using my own hand more in my journals I am expressing myself in a different way, at least it feels different. I like exploring new ways of expressing myself. In some ways it feels uncomfortable, but that's okay.
I found the feather image on tumbler...will draw it on the page eventually. I have been practicing.
I can see after posting these images they are not great photos. I have been lazy and using my iPhone. Even these are not great for the iPhone I must say, but it is a rainy nasty day here today. Will start using my camera again I think.
