In preparation for the Paris Retreat, I’ve been working daily with Conte Crayons in a Moleskine journal. The simplicity of creating pages with simple tools is both quick and very satisfying. I’ve been posting my ‘Page Du Jour’ on facebook but it dawned on me today that I can better manage my blog by posting them here (which conveniently also posts to FB) duh! So in an effort to unofficially keep up with the ‘Art Every Day in November’ movement, I’ll post the past 6 days worth and then work really hard to keep it up by blogging the pages daily the rest of the month. I truly do create every day. I can’t even remember a day in recent history that I haven’t done something creative. Not always is it art, sometimes it’s writing or even working on my website, but those count too. Creating is a way of life and even if it’s only for a few minutes, I make time for it every day.
Turning a sketch into a journal page is easy with Pitt Brush Tipped Artist Pens. They come in the same colors as the Conte Crayons and are great paired together with them.
