Dry Pens Are Sometimes the Most Satisfying

    I made this sketch one evening while watching television. I hadn’t been able to draw anything that day. Sitting next to me I had a lovely handmade journal I made with the old Gutenberg paper which has a lovely laid texture, flecks and a creamy yellow color. It loves pen  and ink.  But […]

MCBA Visual Journal Collective September Meeting—Includes a Film!

090914Background

Above: Background painting over a spread in my current visual journal. I wanted a visual for today's post and I wanted to share this background with you. I've been prepainting backgrounds on spreads throughout my new journal, which uses Gutenberg for the text paper. If you click on the image to view an enlargement you'll see the slighty nubby texture of this laid paper. I love the way the layers of acrylic ink take to this paper. Read at the end of the post about this background. Then go make some background pages in your own journal and come and join us on Monday!

Monday, September 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. is the next meeting of the MCBA Visual Journal Collective.
This meeting is free and open to anyone who is interested in keeping visual journals, regardless of any skill level. (We meet the third Monday of each month, with no meetings in May and December.)

This month we will start our meeting with The 1000 Journals Documentary, by Andrea Kreuzhage. You can read about this interesting project here.

I'm sure this film will inspire and delight the Collective members and lead to a lively discussion. In addition, we will be sharing work from the recent Minnesota State Fair and exchanging books in the on-going Altered Book Journal Round Robin.

Join us to learn how other Twin Cities artists embrace a variety of methods and approaches in their visual journals.
