2018 Art journal: May to August

Here is the second part of my 2018 art journal adventure. As I mentioned in my previous post, I was loosely following the Documented Life Project prompts posted on the "Life Documented 2018".

2018 Art journal: January to April

This year, like the year before, I chose to do my art journal in a traveler's notebook style.

I made a cover, prepared three journals (one for four months). One change was that I created my art journals with pockets (I took ATC page protectors and cut them to fit the journal).

Rach's 6x6 challenge (weeks 1-20)

Several months ago, my online friend Rachel reached a milestone of 100,000 subscribers on YouTube and started a Facebook group where she posted weekly challenges for us to play along with her.

We got a theme every week. The only rule was that we were to work on a 6 by 6 inches format. I decided to make a journal (actually two journals) and a traveller's notebook style cover:

Traveler's Notebook covers

I know I come to this Midori (and Fauxdori) madness a bit late... I was never a fan of this style of journals. Things being squished, a rubber band going through the middle of my planner... 

But then I started art journalling into traveler's notebook inserts... I still didn't think I needed a cover for them. But then I was asked to teach an art journalling mixed media class and was challenged to do a cover for the journals we would be making...

"Wanderlust" art journal - NOVEMBER and DECEMBER

Here are my final art journal pages in my 2017 art journal. I managed to finish this journal still in 2017, on December 31st actually... I got pretty behind during the final months because I wasn't well mentally and couldn't focus on anything creative.

PaperArtsy Topic 16: Rustification

The latest PaperArtsy topic was Rustification.

My layout was inspired by something I saw on my recommended feed on Instagram. But, you know how it goes with Instagram... you blink and poof, it's gone. If it reappears, I will link it here.

I used die-cut flowers and some stencilling for my background. I gessoed the whole page white.

I used some gold and copper metallic inks (and also a bit of purple) for drippage.

Finally, I added some splatters and a quote.

"Wanderlust" art journal - SEPTEMBER and OCTOBER

As I mentioned in my previous post, last month was all about catching up with my "Wanderlust" art journal. I have three traveller's notebook inserts for this year-long "project", so I'm now in the last one.

I'm following the Wanderlust classes and if a page was inspired by a particular class, I mention it under the picture.

I'm still not enjoying the creative process much and it shows on my art... But I'm over hiding my bad art, so here it is.

this page has a flap that opens 
(I needed a page with a flap for a class I'm teaching)

the quote continues under the flap

So, I finally managed to catch up. I guess, I can now get behind again ;-)
