These jotters almost didn't make it to Artfire. I'm so in love with the shades of green on the covers of these notebooks these almost remained mine.IF I didn't already have a box full of jotters these would have been mine. My loss is everyone's gain 'cause they are on ArtFire here.
You can also follow the link to the images of these on Flickr and see more pictures of jotters and other notebooks.
Just a quick update about my etsy shop. I've got loads of items up there though I've not been posting about them.
You can find the following there: 9 sets of Jotter notebooks 5 hedgehog or moleskine style journals 11 various styles of recycled journals 1 large leather journal 2 art supply rolls 1 sewing cradle See everything here!
Celebrate Your Creative Self (CYCS from here on) is a book that is for "artists" it's supposed to help you unleash your inner artist. There are 25 exercises in this oversize book that if you are in an artistic rut that if you read and DO them that can help get you out of that rut. (Sort of like when you get your car stuck on ice and you use your car mats to get unstuck…) The key here is that the ideas within are EXERCISES. That means you have to get your materials out and use them. That's the hard part.
The exercises are easy and can get you working sort of in that automatic writing style. Once you get going you "get going."
This book is easily found just about anywhere and is easy to read but it's a studio book and not a bed side book.
I give it 3/5 binder's needles and 1 paint covered thumb up, only because I like my art instruction separate from my inspiration. This is a great book if you like the 2 mixed. You can get it here.
Here's a video from Millande with a short clip about the book. Turn your volume up, otherwise you won't be able to hear her audio.
