USE WHAT YOU HAVE


These pieces were done in a visual journaling class, under the theme of "Use What You Have. "The instructor gave each of us a manila envelope filled with random found materials and items from nature such as dried grasses and weeds.

We had just 20 minutes to do each piece before stopping abruptly and going on to the next one. For some reason, I found this exercise extremely easy to do, and the work and time just flowed.


Our teacher's point was well taken: You don't have to buy expensive art supplies. Find things around you with which to make art.
