I like art journals. They're intimate, not competitive. There are no time constraints. They're personal. These factors can work against you if you need a little push the right direction, but this year, I'm finding it to be just right. I'm not in any swaps at the moment, but I've been working in a journal where I've given myself permission to experiment and play, even if the results aren't "art."
Thought I would share a few fragments with y'all this week, since I haven't been knitting much.
