and "hello" from me!
Hi all. My name is Jan Allsopp (yes, double 'l' and double 'p', not quite right in the sidebar) and I live in Coffs Harbour on the NSW north coast, Australia. I have been painting and drawing on and off forever. I too discovered Danny Gregory's "Creative Licence" about 2 years ago which led me to journalling and blogging, both of which have turned into two of the best things I've done, and reignited my artistic flame. In that time I've begun an online Bachelor degree in Art and my creative output has increased and diversified dramatically, all thanks to journalling. I have not participated in anything like this before and I'm really looking forward to the experience. I will have to mail order my Japanese fold Moleskine because I can't buy them locally, so I won't have it for a week or so. I already know Alison from her blog and her memory drawings (they are fantastic!) and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone else. I am toying with a theme for my Moly too! Does anyone have experience in these swaps and can give an opinion for and against themes?
