2019 IFJM – Haiku

April 2019 – International Fake Journal Month – Dana Burrell


For this journal I ripped the guts out of this green inspirational soft cover journal by XXXXX and replaced it with the guts of a 7.75 in. x 9.75 in. softcover Strathmore 500 Mixed Media Art Journal. You can see remnants of the previous endpapers peeking out from under the new mixed media endpaper. I also realized that I needed to add one more sheet to the book for continuity. I tipped in a sheet of the S500MM and you can see the overlap on the April 1st spread. I used direct watercolor for all the paintings while the journaling and daily current event haiku were added in pencil.

Video – #2019IFJM

For me one of the best things of IFJM is creating a video flip-through.  It’s the closest I can come to letting you page through the real thing.


If the video won’t play here you can see it on YouTube at this link.


I hope you enjoy this short video… it’s just over 4 minutes long… and please be sure to return in a few days when I’ll do my full wrap up.
