Occasionally, we set off to create a specific art journal page that we have a fixed idea in our minds what it looks like, or what we hope it will look like when completed. Along the way, something happens and the art takes a different path and we wind up with a different page to the one we originally planned on creating. It’s as though the art takes over. As though the art has a life of its own. This is OK, this is welcomed, sometimes the one you end up with looks way better than the one you had in your head!

I love it when a page turns out different to the one I originally planned on creating. I love the process of art dictating what it wants to be. I’m not such a control freak as to stop the process, but let what happens happen.
