While I wasn't able to post weekly updates for a few weeks, I actually have been working in my art journal. Some of the pages were just junk... not worth showing on the blog. I was practicing random things and the pages just don't look good. But one thing that I have been doing is displaying my art journal pages on clipboards that I hung in my office.
Clipboards as photo or art displays were all over Pinterest awhile back. Mine are certainly more functional than cute, but I still like to use them. Maybe some day I'll buy metallic spray paint and make them cuter, but for now they work for me.
Sometimes my journal gets shut and put in a drawer and I don't look back at what I've done. I like displaying the pages this way and rotating through them. It gives a little inspiration and motivates me to keep working on a concept or idea.
I wanted to show you how they look hanging above my desk, but I recently rearranged my living room and office area and so the office is now a disaster. I might post pictures once I get it all organized again.
Meanwhile I only have 2 weeks of summer vacation left before I have to go back for in-service and then the beginning of the school year. I'm trying to get organized with my blog, plan posts out, and generate ideas for the future. I'm worried that once I start teaching again my blog will be neglected (again).
Please let me know what kind of posts you'd enjoy reading.
More travel stories (I have tons left that I haven't written - Panama, Mexico, Peru, Korea, Romania, Italy, Brazil...), more lifestyle posts (recipes, outfits, makeup, diy), personal posts (day-in-the-life, life updates, thoughts on current social issues), artistic posts, or something else entirely???
