I'm just not an Art Journaler I think...
I'm so loving Jump Start and how wonderful are the tutors and their fabulous tips...
I'm learning alot!
This was a mixture of Jumpstart 3, 4, and 5
A result of Catherine's idea of getting past that ugly page and transforming it (it took a bit!) and my fear of journaling feelings - Karens - 'Get everything out in front of you' and Anna's repeat the pattern with curves.
I'll perservere, and say yep - I've done it (smile)
Art Journaling isnt new to me, I've done it many times before,
but its the WORDS that get me.... that journaling part!
It's that putting those feelings out there....
Weeeeeeeeeeell, its just not me.
I love the art process though, and thats fabulous...
But I force myself to put words down, resort to rubons, and to be honest, that makes it not a joy (rolling eyes)
When journaling or making a title of anything for any project - hmmn, I tend to make them adjectives and nouns and envy all the wonderful art journalers who can just do it so beautifully and easily. Maybe I've got to resort to quotes of some kind?
Anyway, I've learnt more about me and my craft (smile) and thats a good thing.
Jumpstart #6 was about using Pan Pastels and sadly I dont have any of these, mainly because I wasnt sure what to do with them... but now after watching some of the videos on the Pan Pastel site... wow - I really would love some!
It's on my shopping list!
Nathalie for #7 showed us how she gets inspired by getting out and photographing street art or anything that helps her create then can turn it into reality at her craft desk
And #8 Lou Nelson does what I do - walk away! But she goes for a wander to cafes and reads through all sorts of magazine genres for inspiration.... plus much more like blog hopping, photographing anything that catches her eye and supplied us with fabby links!
Using Basic Grey... the top layer is Sublime (remember that? It was and still is the most wonderul range of paper Basic Grey put out so long ago. If I find it - I'll buy it! The base paper is Blush.
I've lined up the horizontal lines in the photo to the colour bar lines in the paper...
Using thick string can indicate a fence
Hannah in the tulips! The title is from the Beatle's song.
Used rhinestone brads(had them forever in my stash) to represent the pink tulips, and I love using tissue paper for layering, it adds a nice dimension.
I'm still doing a 12x6 page on each letter that is presented to go in my 12x6 album of everyday things.
Heres my 'K' word
I've never thought to photograph my keys..
Pillows... the best place in the world.. bed!
Our Table - so many meals and conversations have been had around this!
