It seems the more I sort through things the more supplies I find. I am making progress, I think, or at least continuing to try. Using an old composition notebook automatically helps me relax and just play without feeling like the page has to be appealing or perfect. I can try different techniques and supplies in a more carefree manner which helps me work on my skills. Sometimes having the beautiful sketchbook or journal can actually block creative efforts as the item is just “too nice” for feeble attempts or first tries. A composition notebook can help overcome that due to its very approachability and simplicity. If you are looking to start a journal, give the humble composition notebook a try.
