… Fake Journals… not me, but close.

2017 IFJM Planning

For some odd reason, the blog aggregator I use didn’t collect my own post from yesterday, hence this test post. 

Now I could have just written a nothing post but I figured that if I was going to do it I might as well make the most of it!

This spread is from my latest journal, a Pentalic Aqua Journal, where I collaged Roz Stendahl’s 2017 theme image next to where I wrote about my plans. 

Soon the challenge begins!

More Fakery… 2017 Edition

“Life is too short for fake butter, fake cheese or fake people.” *

But obviously not for fake journals!

My character isn’t completely fleshed out yet but she does have a HUGE sketchbook ready to go. 11 x 14 inches… Strathmore 500 Mixed Media Journal… Portrait format.

 

And gouache!

This will be my sixth consecutive year participating in International Fake Journal Month. If you want a great introduction to the concept I recommend you watch the interview Diane Gibbs of Design Recharge had with Roz Stendahl, the brains behind IFJM. 

Be sure to check back in with me to see what I do with this year’s theme, Details Matter. Don’t miss out on the fun!
