Roll the Dice Art Journaling

A guest post by Carolyn Dube

Have you seen the Nov./Dec. issue of Cloth Paper Scissors? It’s the 10th anniversary issue packed with inspiration. I am honored to be a part of this issue with my article, Roll the Dice. I share how I design and use dice to get out of my head and start creating. Not numbered dice, but artful dice. Each side provides me with a rule to follow. This means the hardest decisions are made for me and I can get busy doing instead of listening to negative chatter in my head.

As you watch the video, you’ll notice I don’t wait for things to dry even more than usual. Why? Because when I do an art journal page with the dice I work quickly so I don’t end up back in my head listening to the negative chatter.

By the end of an art journal page, the unhelpful chatter in my mind is usually silenced so I can spend the rest of my day happily creating.
