I bought a book called Journal Spilling by Diana Trout. I also have a beautiful art journal that my friend bought me. I haven't used either items but figured I would give it a go.
The book gives instructions for the first exercise.
- tear out 7 pages from a magazine
- rip out 7 images
- randomly glue them into place
- use a color to scribble
- write whatever comes to mind around the images.
So yup, thats the first attempt.
