(I would say do those things at least once a day. Creativity, art, music, nature, poetry, all the arts stimulate our minds.)
A few of you guessed it. We made journal books. The little one is an accordian fold book. The larger one is made with nicely textured Japanese paper and an accordian spine. We put three sections of paper in it. The purple one is a multi-sectioned French twist binding.
Georgia has also taught me a modified Japanese book binding which I've used when teaching journal making, and writing. I'd love to do more of this, both making the books and teaching.
I get all excited about the different kinds of paper you can find at art stores. I love the textures and the things that are embedded in the fibers. It stimulates my creativity.
My sister Joy and cousin Angie are visiting for a couple days. We're off to the coffee shop where I do my writing for a cup of inspiration.
Journaling Prompt: What stimulates your creativity? Are you a teaching artist, or an artist who teaches, or would you rather not teach? I think my first calling is teacher.
