Unlocking the Creative


It's only been 3 days of my A-Drawing-a-Day challenge and already I'm getting back into the flow of creating again.  I'm making backgrounds in my art journal and sticking the images I've created on top, to create something new, adding a little more paint here and there once the glue's dry. It might not qualify as a finished painting as such but just the doing really unlocks the part of the mind that finds visual solutions through play. Try it if you're stuck at all, it's really working for me!

To see the drawings as they were originally, please click here. :)

While we're talking about Facebook, can I ask a question of those of you who have a Facebook Page for your work?
 I don't seem to get a newsfeed like I do on my normal personal Facebook acccount. Is this normal? How do you see what other people are doing unless you individually click on them on your 'like' list? Also, quite often I find I can't 'like' other people's status updates, only 'share' them.
Any help on this gratefully appreciated! :)

I love your work! I'm not sure what's going on w your FB page. I do get a home feed on my SpiritMama page.

Thankyou! I wonder if you get the 'admin page' when you log in to yours? Maybe I have a different sort of account?

Wonderful work, Jessie! Your colors are refreshing as always. :)

If you use a FB as a business like your personal account, you have to go around and like other pages to see them come up in your feed. If you are talking about seeing other business pages in your feed like you would a person, there is a little thing on the side that says pages (left side) and it'll give you a pages feed that you've liked, but you also need to add them to your interests list or they won't show up. FB is throttling all business pages like that, trying to force you to pay money to be seen by the people who already liked your page. It's really infuriating, but there you have it.

Nice work! I like the bright colours. And Kyra is right about FB.

Jess said...

Thanks but I do 'like' and add to interests and I still don't get the newsfeed. I do however get a notifications feed but it's only comments that have been made on my account. I guess I'll have to put up with just using my personal one to keep up with people's work. :)

i have both a personal and a business page, so i am confused....i guess i use my personal page like you are desiring.... wishing you the best in figuring that out. xo

I'm of no help with Facebook because I rarely use it (to read or post), but your paintings are wonderful!. So fun and expressive!
