For Journal 52 this week (read more about J52 HERE), the prompt was to create your own garden in your journal. My take on that was to draw the flowers I am seeing around me this time of year. And here's what I made:
|'Quite Contrary' ...this is definitely opposite of the noisy pages I've been making lately...|
One of my goals this year was to work on more realistic sketches...and I think this counts as practice. I love this style of white space filled pages, and I really need to make more of them...they make my eyeballs happy!
For Documented Life this week (read more about DL HERE), the prompt was to write your name and embellish it. I did write my name...kinda sorta...but I embellished it with a drawing that worked a little better for me instead:
|I did embellish the page...just not my name...|
This is my name, which is on the other side of the flap:

And finally, I have rolled this over and over in my head, and finally decided to start a fake journal. I've made a second blog to accommodate it, because...well...because it just doesn't belong here. Hopefully, you will see a difference between what happens there and what happens here. If you'd like to follow along with it, you'll have to follow it separately from this blog.
I will be posting the art that goes along with the entries here (along with a link to that day's entry), at least for the time being...but like I said, it's going to be (hopefully) different from what I do here so I won't be forcing all that on you...
So I introduce to you THE ALTERNATE LIFE OF AMY.
And on that note, I'm out...I'm pretty sure I'm going to be late for work now, but hey...priorities...am I right?
