Design Roundup - Journals
Filed under: General, Art Journal, Design
Posted by: Mary @ 10:25 pm

Journals come in all shapes and sizes and can be used to express yourself with words, drawings, photos, ephemera, and many other ways. The Moleskine journal project features 13 artists who were asked to record and express “A Week in Your Life” in their journals. The results are both surprising and delightful.

1000 journals are traveling around the world and being passed along in a monumental collaborative journal project. Each person adds their own stories and drawings to the journal before passing it on. The 1000 Journals Project is an incredible concept and experiment.

You can make your own journals to use as you wish. Elise Blaha shares some wonderful directions for making small blank books on the Tuesday Tutorials section of Ali Edwards site. Below is a small ring book that I created with easy step by step directions.

The challenge theme at Three Muses this week is Word Salad. All sorts of great ideas immediately came to mind. Since I am having problems with my hand today it was easiest to work with scrapbooking paper, glue, and ergonomic cutting tools. This piece expresses my feelings about the theme and where I’m at right now. Don’t think you’d ever catch me on a surfboard although the snowboard my daughter left behind in the garage sure looks tempting some mornings. Ride the wave!

Audubon Nature Center

This weekend my sister and I went to the Audubon Nature Center and walked through the woods and the wetlands there. Everything was so green after all the rain we’ve had the past few weeks. It was very peaceful being in this place which was once farmland, the only remnants of that being old broken down stone walls and a few fields which had not been overtaken by second growth forest. Photos from the walk are posted on Flickr.
