So here I am writing my first official blogger post. I transferred most of my old posts from a wix site to here. Why, you ask? I
Well I figured if I ever needed to stop blogging for awhile, I wouldn't be in jeopardy of losing my blog like I might with my domain name.
So on we go down a new road where I plan to change things up a bit from where I ended at myartjam.com.
I would now like to introduce you to my art diary. I'm very proud of it. I'll take you through some of the first few pages:
As you can see in this first page, I split each page in two so each spread has four dates. I really went for the color blocking but still tried to make each day it's own.
I also used photographs printed from my zip printer to capture the memories of the day. I tried using different elements and techniques.
I love this third page for the depiction of myself in my robe. I folded pink papers over to give it some cool dimension. I also had fun making March 12th. All the squiggly lines behind were painted papers.
This last one might be my favorite so far. On the right side I made tip ins (where there are mini pages you can fold out. Under them are questions for the day and horoscope readings.
I like to use a variety of information about each day. Some of these are:
🔹word of the day
🔹quote of the day
🔹the day's headlines
🔹question of the day
🔹this day in history
🔹joke of the day
I hope you have enjoyed checking out bits and pieces of my personal and art life. I'd super appreciate any comments or questions.
