Comfort Techniques

I love Judi's post on stacked journaling and I'm off to try that. We're all getting ready for the challenge, gathering tools and clearning work space. The first thing I did was write my name in my sketchbook. I chose that page for some "comfort" techniques. Drawing simple shapes, sketching them with thread on the sewing machine and adding a sprinkling of text from old books. Why not start your first page with familiar things, as preparation for the challenge ahead? When I find myself outside my comfort zone, I often return to my favorite ways of expressing myself. Find the joy. Kelli


  1. Thank you!! I'm looking forward to it...I'm all set too....looking forward to it..

  2. Thanks, Kelli! This is a great suggestion. I am definitely going to try using watercolors in my sketchbook, even though this is sort of unfamiliar territory. The simple shapes makes it approachable.

  3. I did a flash on those poetry words you can stick
    on the fridge- I am always trying to get "Up
    off the page" ! Thanks.

  4. I know this is an old post, but it's the first time I've read it. I've never considered 'comfort' art and started wondering if I have any of that, and I think my recent adoption of markers and ink has become 'comfort' art
