TEAR AND PASTE
With SIMPLY WRITE, just grab a notebook, a piece of paper, a receipt or even a paper plate...any surface that you can write on! Write down one or all of the prompts and freely write your response until you are SATISFIED. That's it, you're done.
With TEAR AND PASTE, find an old magazine, junk mail flyer or catalog; set the timer for five minutes and start tearing out images and words that "speak" to you. After five minutes, sort through the images and words, arrange them in a notebook, on a piece of scrap paper or any surface that you like. Then glue them down. I prefer to use a basic glue stick. White glue makes the magazine images wrinkle. But use what you have.
After you've pasted down everything that you want, respond to one of the daily prompts OR respond to the words and images and write freely about what the images and words evoke in you. OR just enjoy the collage!
With MIXED-MEDIA MANIA, at the bottom of the daily email, there will an additional link to learn more about creating an artful backdrop for your journaling responses. You may want to use an art quality journal for this process (which could be a recycled old book, loose card stock weight paper or a spiral bound mixed-media art notebook). You have choices! Choose one path or try a little of each option. Or just enjoy the daily emails. This journey is for you, so make it yours!

One aspect of "being"includes the universal need for community and recognition. I will be setting up a private Facebook group called 28 Weeks of Being YOU!, where you can witness each others' work and journey. I would love to see your collages and mixed-media attempts. Feel free to share as much or as little of your journey as you like.
If you have any questions about the adventure, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to journeying with you!
