ongoing task


this week's documented life project challenge was to use a magazine on your journal page…..




so, i grabbed a "getting organized" magazine and chose three of my favorite ideas.
then i tore out part of the magazine, glued it onto my journal page, and finished the illustration by drawing it in.  not only does starting with part of the magazine image help get past "blank page syndrome", it's also a great way to add your own little touches while practicing your drawing skills!




now, the biggest challenge remains…..
actually using some of these ideas in my overrun-by-clutter studio!!
ugh.


{supplies:  fabriano artistico 140# HP paper, magazine, glue stick, derwent watercolor and inktense pencils, waterbrush, 2B and 6B graphite pencils, washi tape}

Looks great...now, if I could just get past my inability to deface magazines. It's a "thing" for me.

Love your page and your message..."use it or lose it". Need to follow that!

I love the way you used half of the magazine photo and you drew the other half - genius! I need to lose a lot of things in my art room...tons!

Fabulous! I'm always full of good ideas and intentions and that's far as it goes. Carrying them out is another matter altogether. Now as for the journalling part......HELP!!

Loving following along with what you are doing Lori! The redheads and I just got caught up today. Now I just need to photograph our pages and get them up. :-)
