Before working in a journal, the pages have to be prepped. Especially since I am a mixed media artist. I use different medium to work on the pages. I have had so many projects to work on the past while that I have lost track of time. I simply spend hours in the studio. This meant, pushing the Xmas cards to the back of the burner, while I prep* pages to work on them.
*work on the pages – doing backgrounds and then priming them with a Gesso that seals the page so the inks or paints won’t bleed when I begin working on them.
Life is the same. We commit to something then before we are done, something else comes up and we juggle. Choices pop up and we have to decide what is the best way to proceed. I reasoned that Xmas isn’t till December, BUT. I need to turn them in before the fall, so that the agencies can do what they need to do.
Am I procrastinating when I start something else before I finish another project? The PL Calendar for day 23 ( I know we are not where near the 23rd) ” Once you have set out to do something, it is your job. ” Job? I am retired !!! Then it goes on to say, Once you have accepted a task, don’t make any excuses, continue the job until the very end and make sure the outcome is something you can truly be proud of.
Written words and philosophies can be so confusing at times. anyone want to put in some ideas.views, give me something to ponder???
