I thought I'd give the journalling by 5's project a go. I am at stage 4. Here is the cover of my journal and 3 random scan pages.
The sketchbook was £1 from poundland in town....surprisingly fairly thick pages for journalling work.
For details of the project visit the facebook page.
journalling by 5's
Stage 1:- Use paint or inks
Stage 2:- collage items
Stage 3:- stamps and stencils
Stage 4:- focal imagery and words
Stage 5:- details with pen and pencils
Then you can work the individual pages up to a final stage if necessary.
I was interested in doing this project mainly because it involved working with one medium ...over all the pages, before going on to the next medium. This means working up 20 pages simultaneously...rather than working exclusively on one page from beginning to end.
It introduces a randomness too which is fun and also may throw up image connections that are unsual for you.
Here's a link to one of the videos where an artist has begun a journallingby5's challenge.
