I have decided I am going to create a 13 x 13cm little art journal.
I love creating but find I don't always know what to make or what journal to use for which creation. I have lots of different journals. Different sizes with different types of paper etc. As I never know quite what I am going to make I always find it difficult to decide which journal to work in.
So this weekend I decided I am going to work on just loose pages and bind them into a journal later.
Most my journals are A5 or A4.
I love working on a larger page as it gives me the opportunity to work in more detail when for example I am drawing eyes. But I find the big page also puts me off from doing just a quick page. As I know the bigger pages are more work and take more time I tend to put off creating as I have so many other chores to do.
So I decided I am going to create a small 13 x 13cm journal.
Having only a small square to work on I like to challenge myself to create something more often.
I find it very relaxing to create. I also don't want to put any expectations on myself of what I am going to create or how much time I spend on each 13 x 13 page. Some days I might spend a few hours on a 13 x 13. Other days just maybe 15 minutes.
Well here are my first 2 pages:
Today I created this one:
A quick 13 x 13 page. I used watercolour paper. Applied some inktense pencils. Went over it with a water brush and then did some black writing over the top. Doodled a line around the edge and a bit of stamping to finish off. This one did not take too long for a working day, but gave me the joy to let my creative muse play for a couple of minutes before I had to get to work.
Hope I can keep up this challenge I have set for myself.
