It's that time of the year. I'm crazy busy, and distracted and stressed... BUT I can't NOT join in with a Fake Journal. Make up an alter ego and go with it.
We have a Facebook group called Up for a Challenge where several of us drawing daily and are posting our fake journals.
This year, I've chosen to be quick and dirty. I made an accordion book out of 140 lb Canson watercolour paper and covered it with a piece of a torn hand-dyed sarong.
This year, I'm setting these intentions:
make a mess
use a bamboo dip pen (first time) or ink with brush
use markers, gouache, media I'm uncomfortable with.
My character is 17 yr-old Noreen. She is visiting an art therapist for the first time.
Here's my book.
