Journal 52

Journal 52 2018

Posted on Updated on

I did this. Yes, I finished it in January of 2019, but that’s better than when I finished Journal 52 2015 in 2017 innit…

Anywho…Journal 52 2018 is an EffyWild.com joint. She sends the prompts/art cards/magic every Friday and we can post what we make on the Facebook group.

It is happening again this year, and I can’t really recommend it enough.

With that, here’s my book. I didn’t seal the pages with gesso before I started, so there were limits on what I could add (wet media and such) but it was cool to work on it anyway.

As Effy put “Memory” as a prompt twice (weeks 19 & 44), she added a bonus prompt at the end: “Present”.

Because I have no more room in my book for that one, I’ll add it to my 2019 book.

Effy is going through the prompts again for 2019, but I think I’ll revisit the 2017 prompts since I skipped that year…

April showers…

I spent 2 Saturdays mornings in April at the same place: Moschetti’s

It’s a local coffee roaster that has free coffee tastings every good Saturday, and Such. Great. Coffee.

It’s a great place to meet up with other local folks, maybe check out some art & crafts from vendors…

For me, it’s a great place to hang out, and ART my face off!

I’m working on Journal 52 2018 (I’m always behind, but I do like the prompts fromEffy for J52)…

I’m currently finishing up my postcards for iHanna’s Spring swap

These are this year’s models…extra long cards and a set of kid’s stencils got me started this year…

I played with paint…at the time, EVERYBODY was just pie-eyed about quinacridone nickel azo gold, so…

I had fun with more washi tape than any one person will ever need…really…

And gel pens…

And paint pens…

Pitt brush pens…

Magazine clippings…

Ink…

More gel pens…

Time & travel…

And a TINY bit of attitude…

I’m sending these in tomorrow’s mail…2 for Canada, one for Denmark, and the rest in the states, but none in California (where I am).

Truly, iHanna is GOOD…
