I am very excited to be involved in a couple of different journal collaborations this year. One of these is an art project based on artists of our choice - there are 8 of us, and we have all chosen a different artist to be inspired by. We are currently in the process of making our journals and creating some work inspired by our chosen artist and then we will send them off next week for the next person to create in. I have chosen Gustav Klimt - so each member of the collab will create work in my journal inspired by Klimt, and by the end we will have learned about 8 different artists and created work inspired by them. How amazing is that!
We are not going to share our work in the other members' journals until it is all over though (well, maybe just one or two pages!) so that there will be surprises for the journals' owner at the end. Here are some of my pages so far in my Klimt journal - I've loved working with gold leaf and am excited to get it off in the post.
