International Fake Journal Month Ends for Me Today

May 19, 2011

See the post for details.

If you are interested in what I did for art in April 2011 please stop by The Official International Fake Journal Blog today to see a video flip-through of my 2011 fake journal

Due to a unforeseen time crunch, I was unable to post my written wrap up at the same time as promised. Please check back there on Saturday for my summary of my experience of this year's celebration of International Fake Journal Month.

If you participated this year I want to thank you again for doing so, whether or not you shared your journal publically. I hope that you will join me again in March 2011 at that blog, to prepare for April 2012!

And if you haven't participated in IFJM before, think about all the fun you're missing and consider joining in next year.

Life's so short, why live only one?

    Reason number four why you need to write a book. I am getting a headache from bouncing around all over your blog trying to find the trail of topics that interest me. If you were to write a longer entry, say chapter length, about brushes or paint selection or paper or …. then it would be a lot easier to get all the juicy tidbits that you offer. And it’s just taking time to work my way through the whole thing starting in ’08, plus then I have to put bits of it together myself – which I really don’t have the head for right now. Boy, wouldn’t a book format make it easier. You should write a book.

    LizzieBo, sorry you’re having difficulty finding stuff you want to find. I tend to make things I think are important into pages, so you might start there.

    Next if you use the blog’s search engine that will help you get to main posts about things like brushes, gouache palette, etc. I hope you can find it useful.

    The headache is worth it for all the wonderful details, but I suppose what you’re really saying is you don’t want to write a book. But really, you should write a book.

    aaaw I really the non-linear-ness of the website, I get lost into pages a lot, it’s part of the fun. Loved the Journal, and Shadow Girl Black, sounds like a “Torbet Grey” to me. He’s not some shy and retiring superhero, it’s an oil paint pigment mix, made of all the waste pigments collected in the extractor system of a famous paint manufacturer. When they do the yearly filter replace, they mix up all the old stuff and call it colour. Shame to kill off the heroine though, who do you bring in for the sequel? I vote for “Guthrie Maxton” He’s a roadsign I saw on Route 65. ( close but no banana, next time Route 66, then 67; if there is one)

    LizzieBo, I’m saying exactly what I mean to say, which is I’m sorry you are having trouble finding stuff on the blog.

    I really appreciate your desire for me to do a book. That’s kind.

    I plan for journal books to be in my future but none of that can help you now. Only the search engine can.

    Be sure to always hydrate before you read my blog! That might help. I find it helps if I hydrate before writing it!

    Thanks for reading.

    Leslie, thanks for your comment (I always enjoy them and your tangents, which are related). I love the linkability nature of the website/blog mode. The x-ref girl in me thinks it’s fabulous. After almost 3 years it has grown into an interesting “creature.”

    As for the “sequel” question. More on that probably Sat. on the other blog.

    I like that Guthrie Maxton. What a roadsign. We need to always be looking for these.
