There is a need in me to share what I enjoy and to encourage others to share in their joys.
I began this journey with hopes of encouraging individuals to reevaluate their values and refocus on the true values of their life, even if it goes as far back as to childhood dreams.
Childhood dreams should not contain attacking people with dangerous weapons. There are other alternatives to those types of events. One of those alternatives is to pick up a pen, a pencil or a paint brush to express one's self through writing or art.
One of my goals is to encourage other people to be mentally creative over physically violent. An example: veterans, one of which I am, who have gone through emotional turmoil in various forms, consider joining in the process of writing through your fears or your emotional events.
A suggestion: everyone could evaluate what their childhood values were to refocus on their true elements of productive creativity, in whatever form it may be, whether working with their hands or working with their minds. What is the avenue for this process? That which is within Your Heart!
I am not saying writing, drawing or painting is the absolute cure which will take care of everyone's issues. What I am saying is this: those with the minute desire to write, paint or draw - begin. Let it help you to reground yourself, in some manner, manageable by you.
If your dreams are creating with your hands, so be it. Please, follow your desires. Creativity comes in many forms. Healing comes in just as many forms. Begin today.
Another goal is to offer a quality hand made product at a reasonably economic price, for those wanting to write, draw or paint in, and have a memorable item to keep.
Now I am offering cards which are from my original artwork of various forms: watercolor, acrylic, silverpoint drawings,pen & ink and a combination of all of these art forms.
Silverpoint, or Silver Point drawing has been a passion of mine for a while. Now, Silver point journals are available.
Eventually, I hope to have leather journals with removable and replaceable inserts.
My art pictures are available now and more art pictures will be added.
And - as I have identified extra art supplies, I wll post them on the site also.
Please check back through the website to find new products. Different journals are at various locations or show events. No two journals will be listed or seen at different locations at the same time. New journals are also being made and as they are finished, they will be posted on the website.
Lastly: Thank you for being part of my joy!
Writing and Sketch Journals are excellent for memoirs, individual narrations, drawings or any combination.
The journals are made by hand with handmade papers for the covers. If a commercially made product it used, it will be noted in the description of the product.
They open flat for ease of use with an opportunity to use each page individually or with double page designs.
These would make ideal unique individual, wedding and birthday gifts.
Writing Journals will be shown with Item Numbers in the 1000 series.
Sketch Journals will be shown with Item Numbers in the 2000 series.
Watercolor Journals also have handmade paper for the covers, have a hard cover and open flat.
The internal pages are made with watercolor paper which is ideal for use with watercolor, inks, pen, pen & ink and washes individually or with a variety of these combinations.
These products have Item Numbers in the 3000 series.
Mixed Media Journals also have a hard cover and are made with handmade paper. These journals also open flat for ease of use.
The internal pages are from paper specifically designed for the "mixed media" concept. Here, acrylic, watercolor, inks, pen & ink or any combination of these products can be utilized by the artist.
Mixed Media Journals are shown as Item Numbers in the 4000 series.
SilverPoint Journals have both sides of each page specially prepared to accept silver, gold, brass or copper points as a drawing instrument. These are in the 5000 series.
New products are coming soon!
As we all progress through our art development career, each of us finds we no longer use some of our tools. Rather than throw mine away, I hope to pass these items on to an interested person. Therefore the items will be offered for sale. The items listed and pictured are available on the ETSY store set up at : etsy.com/shop/Pulp4Papers.
As time goes on, we develop as a child into an adult. Along the way, we loose the childhood and the elements of being a child. Now, I have gone back to my childhood dream of doing art. I do not have a college degree in art. I do have a number of college degrees, but not in art. And with that I am extremely pleased. The process of bringing my ideas to the art world has been a long and arduous process. Now I am prepared to show and sell my art. Here again, I ask that you go to my website on ETSY if you would like to purchase my products, whether is be writing or art journals, extra art supplies or my unique art. And that web address is: etsy.com/shop/Pulp4Papers
