Click on the image above to read about my
goals and process for my Fake Journal 2014.
I did mostly pen drawings with
watercolor washes. Most of my other
journals are mixed media collage,
so it was a fun change to just
draw what I saw, or draw an idea.
I didn't anticipate how difficult it would be
to NOT explain! Generally I feel it is
important, and necessary, to explain my
blog posts so that they are clear to
the reader. It certainly was a challenge
not to do that. I had to resist my
automatic urge to explain, but at the
same time it was fun to dream up
themes that a decorator would be
asked to create, yet still not
"give it away."
By the time I had covered many of
the holidays, I thought surely that
my character's career would be
obvious. To my surprise, it wasn't,
at least to several readers who commented.
I enjoyed the project, and was most
pleased with the 'still lifes' that I drew.
Hope you've enjoyed the
Counterfeit Journal pages as
much as I have, and maybe you
will consider doing a Fake Journal
for yourself next April!
