Journal Friday #67: Compulsions and Obsessions


This week has been a busy and exhausting week as I started my summer teaching two kids' summer camps, so I haven't had a lot of time to work in the journal. But I've eked out a little time here and there. During busy times, I like to use what Dave and I call compulsions and obsessions. These are marks and techniques that are easy to add pages, and I come back to them time and time again. This week, I spent time adding some rectilinear lines to the background of a page, filling in some letters, thickening lines and shapes, and adding some spirals.

It's not much, but the the steady accumulation of actions leads to rich, full pages.
