Not wonderful because anything particular has happened, but the sun is having a go at shining and I've got a clear day ahead of me in which anything might happen, including a trip to Ikea! On my workdesk is one of three "artist sketchbooks" bought on special offer from Sainsburys. You won't be remotely surprised to learn that these will become art journals, and I've been decorating the cover of one - they come with a blank, white gessoed cover with that express purpose. I gave this one a coat of paint and collaged it until it looked done, which it just about is.
Here's a close-up view - I should add that the pages are about A5. I've enjoyed my A4 pages but found them just a touch big (and therefore intimidating) where my original ones were a bit small. Am therefore hoping that this size will be (as Goldilocks said) "just right". The initiated among you will notice a number of Artchix images on the cover ....
And here it is, open at a blank page, inviting me to fill it up. Think I will do the first one as a title (have decided all my journals will have one) and this will be called "talking to myself". Maybe later I'll get a chance to prep some pages and play about with inks and crayons and stuff ..... I'll be back to look at some desks then!
Several people have left messages asking questions - if you do so via the email in my profile I'll do my best to respond, but if you only comment and don't have an email in your profile then it gets a bit complicated!!
