Day 26 - Anxiety


I'm experiencing anxiety as we approach the end of the 31 days! (LOL)
Well, sort of.
Will I get everything completed in time?


What about the other creative projects
and not so creative projects
coming down the path?


And what about those spiders and things that go bump in the night?


Anxiety is the essential condition
of  intellectual and artistic creation.

This was a journal page that I made with the 365 Journal Class at Creative Workshops with Pam Carriker. One of the suggestions she makes in the workshop and her book Art At The Speed of Life, is to take your own art work, copy/ scan or reproduce and use it in other projects.

Which is what I did here. It's so easy to scan and print, or scan, save to flash drive and take to Office Max and have them print. ( Not happy with my printer.....but that's another story....Office Max is close and on the way to everywhere.)

You'll notice the Martha Stewart stamps used, the spider web under Anxiety, bats in the upper right, and spiders in the lower left.  I have used assorted scrapbooking papers and elements that you may recognize.

Be sure to check out all the Wicked Bloggers in the links on the right and come back tomorrow for more art!

Your images depict Anxiety well!
however I have to disagree with Mr. Frankel. I have anxiety it does not add to art. It takes away ones MoJo, and often times ART is the CAUSE of one's anxiety. I'm sure you can agree with that.
