Today's post is a reminder and encouragement for folks involved in the Not-So-Blank-Page Journal we're working on in the MCBA Visual Journal Collective. You can read about this project at the link.
I just wanted to take a moment to share another page from my journal (which because of time limitations and schedules and maybe a bit of insomnia), I finished on June 16.
I wanted to remind people who are participating to keep working on their journal pages. We've got about 90 days until our December meeting when we will show all the journals together in our continuous, simultaneous viewing.
So if you are having any trouble with those pages remember to just jump in. If you're not sure a medium or technique will work on a page think about dedicating a page in the journal as a "test page."
That's what you see in today's post, my test page. I have items collaged all over the page, even collaged on top of other things. I have decorative paper, Canson Mi Tientes, a scrapbooking border, various types of tape, a spatter sketch which used a pen that was new to me at the time, smears of rubberstamp re-inker, and a variety of pens, from hot pink markers to puffy ink pens (around "Test"). If I wasn't sure about something I tried it out here. There is enough paper showing through from the original page that I could still run some more tests if I wanted to.
So keep going and have fun. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to.
