Art Journaling Article




Sometimes..

When I sit down to journal...
and I begin to write on the page...







I realize that it is all about me...




All About Me, Caterina Giglio, in Somerset Apprentice 2017




and in April 2015..
I just owned that thought..

I decided that since I was writing about all the things
that I was dealing with at the time..







that I would simply embrace that thought...













and found a way
to represent myself...








and illustrate the idea..








that there was no wiggle room..
it was all in black and white..



I am very grateful to
have the opportunity to work 
with everyone at 
Stampington..
They are so lovely to work with..
and again, I am in great company..

I hope you can
pick up a copy to read about how I created this
spread...


Ciao, ciao!!

If there's any place it can be all about ourselves, it's in our art journals. I admire you for being willing to share that. Looks like a good spread and will look forward to seeing it.

Hi Laura, thanks so much, it is a great issue, I think you will love it!!

Caterina Giglio said...

Miss Iowa, I agree, but usually it is a mix and often just about my family and what is going on around me and in the world, this time, It was really ME, ME, ME!! LOL.. thank you so much!

Congratulations ,again dear Cat, it looks so beautiful, and I have ordered this mag, too :-) It is right, that when creating it is also about our self, and we always lay a piece of heart in the creations. This being all you ,and only you ,is a more "naked" ,art piece from you, than before, and I look so forward reading your words . Hugs, Dorthe

This is wonderful, Cat! Sometimes it really is all about you, and people want to know you as a person and an artist. I think it's a great idea!

I so wish I could get these magazines in my part of the UK ... but alas no! I do feel I am missing out big time! Your images are wonderful ... you make black and white so beautiful. Love ya !! x

Caterina Giglio said...

Thank you Dorthe, dear, so glad you liked it and it IS ok that it is all about me occasionally! I agree!! So glad you can order these as so many friends in Europe and the UK cannot! Hope you like the article, it is a great issue!! xoxo

Caterina Giglio said...

Oh Sharmon what a lovely thing to say, I guess I have always kept those two kind of separate, me the private persona and me the artist .. what a nice thought! xo

Hi Carolyn, so nice to have you pop by and just let me know if you want me to pop an issue in the post to hop the pond... you know I would be willing to do that! BTW we are planning a trip to the UK in 2018 and I made sure that Mousehole is on the list! xox
