After the movie, I was thinking about a scene where they show RDJ sitting in a restaurant and he is overwhelmed by the sights and sounds presented to him all simultaneously. I know how that feels sometimes and I suspect that is why I am sensitized to these types of movies/topics. The noise and the attention to detail render much of this work as too much for me - my imagination is pretty active and the scary details just serve to feed that part of my brain. I don't really need/want any help there, thank you very much.
"Shirlock Holmes" was a better movie than I expected, but to me, the only real reason to see it is Robert Downey, Jr. I would watch him read the phone book because he is THAT GOOD. But I would rather watch him in other stuff - stuff with more humor. Although an "Ironman 2" trailer made me question if I want to see it at all. It has Scarlett Johanson and Mickey Rourke in it - ick. I'm sure I will see it as it will be one of those blockbusters that everyone sees, but I'm not looking forward to the other cast of characters in this one.
So, for my art journal pages, I have a few new pages. I rewatched Teesha Moore's video on collages because I felt that there was something happening in my ability to do this spontaneously. I think it was a good thing and so I did a few pages last night. None of them are complete, but I think they have regained the quality I was looking for - not so planned, not so themed. I did realize in doing these, what Teesha meant about the white page journals being more difficult in some ways.
Originally, I thought that the white page journal would be exactly what I wanted to do, but it is turning out to be much more challenging than I would have expected. I think in the future, I may have one spread per book stay white, but will probably paint the other sets of pages.
Here are some of the newer pages, still in progress:
As I said, these are still works in progress. For some reason, though, I felt compelled to post them - as if to say, I am still working on it - I haven't stopped. I'm sure you will see more of these images as time goes on. As I said, I was looking to change how I was doing stuff and I think I accomplished that. These are very different from what I had been doing and I'm not sure if I'm entirely comfortable with this "new" way, but it was freeing - not finding the "perfect" thing, but finding stuff that was interesting and intriguing.
