I started doing the exercises in Inner Excavation more formally. I read the book last summer and I did some of the tasks, but since I am really into creating in my art journal right now and poetry really has been a part of my life since the beginning of the year – I thought it was the perfect time to actually try to follow the book more formally. Last summer on the author’s website she did a follow-along while she worked through it too. She did videos to go along with reading the book so I am following those.
The top photo is of the start of a layout and the poetry task… “I begin…” and then the second photo is of the cover of the journal I am using. My sister Michelle has given me some AMAZING journals over the years and right now it seems most of the ones that are sitting empty are going to become art journals. This one I love love the cover. Love the colors and design, but I am still thinking of covering it up with something that fits the inside of the journal better. I am going to wait until later to decide.
