Today I finally scanned and uploaded the final page to my first art journal with the sewn-on tabs binding taught by Mary Ann Moss in her Full Tilt Boogie class. You can see more of that book by clicking HERE, and at the end of the flip-thru video on that post you can see what this page looked like before anything was added to it.
I began this journal last year on the fourth of July for no other reason than that is when I finished binding the book, and I journaled the last page this year on Memorial Day, for no other reason than it happened to be that weekend when I got to the last page.
I'm still working in multiple journals at once, but I must admit that I have more fun with this style than most of the others. They all serve different purposes, but this is the one I work in chronological order. I'll be sharing pages from the newest journal soon, so be ready for it! It's a bit smaller than this one, but the style and the binding are similar.
And now a drumroll, please!
I've added another blog to "My Other Blogs" list on the sidebar. This is significant since I've always kept this blog separate, it's not a typepad blog--it's a blogger blog, and it's all about cards, templates, die cuts, and crafty stuff artfully designed and arranged. I haven't added to that blog since 2009, but I've decided to ressurect it because I've fallen in love with making .svg files (scalable vector graphics) in Inkscape, turning them into die cuts with SCAL software, then cutting them. I've also fallen in love with scanning my own line drawings as well as creating them in Inkscape and also using line drawings from other sources, adding pattern, color, shadow, etc. in Photoshop, then printing to use as custom images for hand cuts and diecuts. So be sure to stop by ArtyCards'NCrafts. You can get there by clicking HERE, or by clicking on ArtyCards'NCrafts on my sidebar.
And soon there will be even more news to share with you, so come back often! You can subscribe to this blog, or to any of my blogs by clicking on the rss widget or "subscribe to this blog" and adding that blog to your feed reader. If you don't have a feed reader, you might want to get one. It took me years to figure out how much easier it was to see new posts on the blogs I want to keep up with by using a reader. I use google reader, but there are lots of others out there and they're all free, so check it out and take your pick!
