Just Journaling: A Page for the New Year 2017

Waste not, want not,
Waste not, want not,
Use it up, wear it out,
Make it do, or do without!

"Waste not" in 2017 will mean "dig into the closet, find the art supplies that were bought ages ago but never used, and use them!"
"Want not" in 2017 will mean "do not run to the store (or the internet) to purchase every new art item that I learn about."
"Use it up, wear it out" in 2017 will mean "there's the art supplies - now make some art!"
"Make it do, or do without" in 2017 will mean "be creative with the art supplies that I have - explore their range of possibilities!"

Lots of layers of collage, acrylic paint, gesso, and Sakura Glaze pen in Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Sketchbook.


  1. Patty - I enjoy your posts! I especially appreciate these quotes - referring to using up our supplies. I NEED to do more of that. Thanks for reminding me! :)
