I have a confession: I have no idea what I am doing.
At least part of the time.
When I set up the camera, journal, and watercolor pencils (Derwent Inktense) I didn’t have a plan other than I knew I wanted to create some kind of background for a journal page to write on top of later on.
With my first stroke finished I knew where I was going but before that, I had absolutely no idea. If I had waited for inspiration to find me I would have sat at my kitchen countertop and then got up in frustration to make a cup of tea. When I would have come back, a blank page would be there to greet me and mock me.
With no expectations of outcome there is no disappointment or the little voice (or big voice, depending on the day) that says, “That’s crap! That looks nothing like …(the thing you meant to make)”.
Creating journal backgrounds in this way builds trust in intuition. It builds confidence in your creative ability.
Where can you let your intuition lead you to today?
