Creating Unique Text in an Art Journal and my Pages of January 2023

Daily Art Journaling in December 2022

Daily Art Journaling in December 2022

I gave myself a challenge, an assignment to make a collage daily. For half the month I was ill (Covid, grrr). I did make collages some days, but on other days I had to skip.

Inspired by a friend who followed a course in art journaling, I too put some first steps on that path.

The main difference with the November collages is the text and the date stamp I added.

It’s great to see the art journal pages of others to get inspired. Look at my Instagram account and click the hashtag #artjournal or #artjournaling. (In the first comment of my posts).

I gave myself a challenge, an assignment to make a collage daily. Gelli printing made me really enthusiastic, so in November I was totally committed to making Gelli prints.

So much so, that I made a separate article about the process and the discoveries of my experiments that you can read here:

What is Gelli Printing and What Makes it so Amazingly Easy?

It’s great to see the Gelli prints of others to get inspired. Have a look at my Instagram account and click the hashtag #gelliplate or #gelliprint. (In the first comment of my posts).

Photo Selection of November 2020

In 2020 I took a picture almost every day and published it on this website and on Instagram. In hindsight, not every picture was satisfying, so I made selections of them. 🙂

For several months we have been in a complete lockdown which made my options for nice subjects rather limited. Yet, this was also a challenge to make the most of it.
