January brings a new year of a Year in the Life of an Art Journal! This is the 3rd year i will participate, and like the last two i have custom made my own art journal.
This year I've switched it up a little and tried to perfect what i've learned works for me in an art journal by using different sorts of papers at different sizes. All papers are heavyweight with different textures and size. I've also elected to use holes to bind so if i need to take them out to work on them easier OR if a paper isnt doing it for me and i want to replace the page with a different type of paper i can.
The thing I think i've decided i like best about art journals are the bits that hang over the edges and make you want to explore. Therefore the pages are different sizes and orientations to exaggerate this!
I've completed the front cover with many things from Gauche Alchemy kits like sheet music and punchinella. The background are paint strips cut up and interwoven.
I am looking forward to working in it in the upcoming year!!!!
