Linda and I both have a copy of an absolutely gorgeous book called “Collaborative Art Journals” by L. K. Ludwig. Anyway, it was this book that got me started thinking about a journal that wasn’t a book and didn’t involve (much) writing. I wanted to do an art journal where I represented visually what was going on in my head and life (assuming something is). One idea in the book was to use a box and make loose pages to fit inside it, so this is my take on that. It’s not that big – about 7″ by 4.5″, so the pages to go inside will be roughly twice the size of a playing card or ATC. Enough space to offer scope but not so much as to seem daunting! My plan is to make a page for each month – or it could be more if something special happens which seems to need it. Either way I should end up with a year in a box which says something about my feelings and experiences throughout it.
Crumbs this may end needing censorship! Linda is going to do one with me, and I hope to persuade more of you to work alongside on this project? The nice part about it is that you can join in at any stage, or make pages more often, it can be any size you like, and it encourages you to keep and treasure your own art! I used some papers I got for Christmas – from the Basic Grey “Ambrosia” range – to cover a box I had which seemed the “right” size. I’ve protected the papers by painting over them with Winsor & Newton matt varnish (intended for acrylic paintings). You can’t tell it’s there at all, but it does provide a coating. I stamped all kinds of labels and whathaveyou and had fun sticking them around and grunging up the box a bit. The curly arrow on the top is a piece of chipboard I had to hand, and I painted it with black metal effect acrylic and rubbed it with copper to age it a bit. I haven’t photographed it but the inside is also covered with other papers in the range, and painted with the same acrylic varnish.
Phyl, that ever lived! I used to do crayon batik every year when I taught 7th and 8th graders. It was one of my favorite things to do. We also did some ‘authentic’ batiks with clear wax and multiple dye baths. Anyhow, your results are absolutely lovely. I did a few things a little differently when I did batik with my classes. First of all, we put our wax in muffin tins floating in electric fry pans – that way you don’t have to worry about cracking glass. We used some paraffin and then added crayon color. The paraffin crackles quite nicely, and extends the crayon color so you don’t need to use quite so many crayons. We also had a couple of wax melter units that could be used for smaller amounts of wax. For fabric, to save money we used old white sheets. The whiter the fabric, the brighter the results. So if you buy muslin, you want to make sure it is BLEACHED.
