Mixing The Old With The New
These are some photos of the journal I am currently working on. I think I may be obsessed with journals. I was looking through all my art stuff yesterday and found all these journals starting in 2005 that were so unfinished. I'm talking stacks of black journals that I started and never finished. So.....I thought to myself......why not use these images since I put so much time into them and thought ....why not consolidate them?? So I have gone through my journals and removed all the best images I think I'll be able to work with. I've cut up doodled watercolors for borders and put some of my pen and ink face illustrations in the centers. I still have many more to look through but this is the start of it all. These are just the beginnings of the pages I will be transforming even more with my obsession with intricate detail. My plan is to make each page look like a jewel. Many of the small face images within these pages will soon be transformed into the jewelery as I was talking about earlier this week. I just love that you can shrink these pages to 25% to get tiny images for jewelery.
