There's a correction: this wonderful suggestion is from Pam Johnson Brickell and her wonderful work. Sorry Pam that you didn't get the initial credit but I'm hoping this will make up for it?
I follow this wonderful blog on keeping a watercolor journal - "Artist's Journal Workshop". I can always dream of being able to keep a beautiful journal like Cathy Johnson or maybe Brenda Swenson can't I? Cathy is a generous teacher of journaling and workshops and how to's.
In today's blog, which I've copied whole - I did ask permission because I think this is a wonderful lesson for all of us - she talks about making a typo on a "precious" journal page (Those Are My Words) - I would have committed hara kiri if I'd drawn that wonderful page and then made a huge typo.
I thought this was a useful lesson for all of us.
