Digital Mixed Media Art Journal
On October 18th I will be teaching a workshop on using digital images in art journals. This workshop will be the second of 3 workshops at the artists' nook in Ft. Collins, Colorado. A fabric journal was started while I was thinking about this workshop. My inspiration is creating a journal using all sorts of digital images, printed on many surfaces and not using ideas that I have used before. Well at first this was going to be one journal, but with all the pages and thickness, I have split it up into 5 journals. I am almost done with the pages - only 2 more of the total 60 pages complete. Once the covers are finished I will finish the photographs of the journal pages.
The techniques are many and since the final compositions for the pages were all firsts to me, it was quite a challenge. It will be awesome to share all the ideas to use digital prints on many experimental surfaces during the workshop at the artists' nook.
