Hi Everyone....not sure who all will be taking this Art Journal journey with me but I'm excited to start!! As I have stated, I journal daily (write) but I really want to take my journaling efforts to a more artsy level where my approach is creative first and then on the text....A shift in journaling for me. I can tell already that I will have many journals going at once to serve different purposes.....there are many types of journal approaches .........there is no wrong way here folks so don't get caught up in doing things the "right" way.
So, to be ready for Saturday morning, get yourself the following items:
1. A sketchbook. I really wanted to use my nice bound sketchbook but the paper is thin and really best suited for dry materials. So I am using a spiral bound mixed media sketchbook instead. I could use the nice one but my pages would soak thru and get wrinkled in what I expect to be some painterly processes.
2. Your favorite paints, markers, pens etc... I will do my best to list the products I have used on each page but always feel free to jump in and post what you've used or done.
3. Light tack masking tape. My first page will be an exploration in to Masking Tape so I figured you might want to get some ready.
Thats really it for now.....
I have a new video camera....much like a Flip but mine is called a Blogger. I would like to video tape myself working on these pages but might have resort to photographs occassionally. I'm going to try and be one day ahead too..............gosh, I sure hope I can pull this all off!
Tomorrow night I will set up a flickr group for anyone who wants to share their work. It will be an open, on going group where anyone can jump in at anytime.
