Can you believe it's Wednesday again already? Where did the week go? Sometimes it feels like I just blink my eyes once and woosh, another Wednesday has come around! Somehow these woyww posts make me very aware of the quickly passing time.
Now, without further philosophical ado, let's look at my workdesk!
What you see is the result of my altered atlas not being ready for use by far as my next journal. As I told you in my last post, my ROD2 journal is almost full (I will probably finish it tomorrow). Now I need something to get me over the time between my current journal and the new altered atlas. So, I sat down to do a quicky journal.
This is the inside of the journal without the extra's I'm currently adding. This is so easy to do and very fast too. This took about half an hour! All you need is a piece of household sponge, some watercolor or gouache and a bowl of water. I took a lot of pictures and may yet do a tutorial on how to really quickly prep a journal this way. But that's for another time.
The journal is actually a little sketchbook I bought at the National Gallery in London. It depicts one of my favorite paintings, which is Lake Keitele by Akseli Gallen-Kallela. As you can see I have very disrespectfully drawn right over the painting and the back of the book with a black marker and a white paint marker. I didn't want to make the painting unrecognizable, but I did want to add a little personal touch. As you can see I called this journal, very aptly, "The In Between Book". ;-)
Right now I'm adding little tags and pockets to the journal pages with washi tape and then it will be ready for use. It will be a simple journal and I have no idea yet how the pages will look when I start filling it up. But I'll be sure to keep you posted on that!
Wishing you all a very artsy Wednesday!
