In March we start our next round robin art journal swap based on individually chosen colour themes and entitled 'Magical Journal Journeys'. I posted my completed journal to Lisa today. I was quite pleased with it except for the fact I got so involved in the process of creating that I forgot about weight and the associated postage costs. I will be sending my friends money to help with postage or else may have to reconstruct the journal. The latter option does not appeal because after many many hours in creating I've grown quite attached to it. Anyhow, here's a photo story of my finished journal box, they're not great photos but hopefully will be enough to give you an idea......
After both flaps are opened the middle section holds nine individual booklets for each participant to create in.
In my booklet I created pages to welcome everyone and space for them to sign in and share their thoughts on colour.
I used a mixture of inks, embossing powder and acrylic paint to create these backgrounds. I applied them with rubber stamps, cloth and textured brayer/roller.
Inside the journal box the other eight booklets are waiting to be created in. Each has a double page of canvas paper, a silver tag and the cover is in silver card. I haven't secured the pages because it will be easier to create in them first before fixing together.
I'm excited for the swap to start and to enjoy each of the colour schemes and the journals created for them. The beginning of a new 'Magical Journal Journey' is about to begin and I'm so looking forward to being part of it.
- Do you have any creative projects to begin or that have just begun? Please do share; I'd love to hear about them.
