Then, recently, I was invited to join a FaceBook group of artists, called art aMUSEment, headed up by Kelly Hoernig, who is a well known instructor within the Decorative Painting Industry. Each of the artists in the group have their own experience in a wide variety of artistry mediums. The fun began almost immediately as each Monday, Kelly would toss out an idea (a word, an item, a thought, a quote, etc.) for us to use to create a piece oriented around that *thing*. It has been great fun to see the creativity and diversity of everyone's work.
December 2012, Kelly queried the group, as to our interest in joining her with a 2013 Art Journal. I googled the phrases I'd heard used -- "mixed media" and "art journaling" to see what it was all about and it looked interesting. We were to pick a word to be a key factor in our journals ... not a New Year's resolution, but a word that mattered to us. I chose "memory" (with the intent to also encompass all of its thesaurus references, like remember, remembrance, etc.) as its a concern for me -- I seem to be losing data bits that were once part of my brain.bat. (I blame the plethora of meds I have to take! LOL)
