What’s going on…
… in my life these days?
Well, for one: I am happy, HAPPY,
to say that the cover of FEATURING magazine is finished and looks
if I may say so myself.
(… and NO, I am not going to show it – yet.
Allow me to rub my hands together in satisfaction all by myself for
a while longer – a few weeks from now issue #1 will be out and you all
get the chance to see it then.)
That’s not the only secret I keep - I have a sneak peek of a new art journal
page for you at the end of this post. But all the other events of last week are
public and readable on my weekly art journal page…
The Chronicles of Marit 2012 – Week 12
(Spread size: 24,5 x 49 cm – 9.65 x 14.86 inch)
OK, and now the English speaking readers will say ‘readable?
I don’t understand a thing… it’s in Dutch!’ Yes, my Chronicles are written
in my own language and most of the time it says what I did that week.
Nothing special, but to do you a favour, I will translate it this time.
Mopping and waxing the corridor and the wooden floor in the living room.
I receive a long letter from Lenny -including cute images of fish. M. is working
on the cover of FEATURING. The rest of the magazine is finished and I am
extremely satisfied. Wonderful content and ‘look.’ Beautiful Spring weather -
doors open and laundry outside. 20 degrees (Celsius.) Read in the garden.
Pick Nout of the train – buy new acrylic paint – Hire and watch Harry Potter
See? Nothing special.
Oh, wait, yes… the acrylic paint was on sale this week.
Thanks Elvy, for pointing it out to me. I bought 9 new tubes!
The little smudges show all the colours I posses right now, with
the names written next to it. I also used two of the fish-images
(‘poezieplaatjes’) that my dear soulmate-I-call-her-sis-friend
sent to me. She send a whole bunch: fish and shells. I have the
feeling more of these images will show up on my pages in the near
future. The dates are cut out from a magazine, the month/week
titles are drawn with a template. That’s about it.
Remember the art journal page I showed in my Friday post?
The one that I was not satisfied over? After that, I changed my
way of working. I strongly feel I need to take a new path, another
approach to my work… and I am experimenting with it now. It all
started with the next page, which is still a mixture of old ‘familiar’
techniques but has a special feel. My goal is to explore that ‘feel’
some more in a way that I am not used to.
Here’s a sneak of the ‘page that provoked a click.’
I hope to finish the page this week, and then move on to explore
the idea I already have in mind.
I will keep you posted!
