Finding a way to Let Go of the monkey mind
What do you do when you have no focus, your mind can’t seem to stay with one idea long enough to make any connection? You create a Letting Go art journal.
A friend who works in the school library looks out for books that are great for altering and passes them on to me. Recently she came across these which were too old to be of any use to the students. The Statistics book was the perfect size for this new journal.
Instead of prepping the entire book I glued several of the beginning pages together, tearing out the page in between. The first page was blue so I gessoed over it, then scraped it to thin out the gesso and create a smoother surface.
How do you handle your monkey mind when it simply won’t allow you to focus?
