Project Life Testers #3 & #4

I keep flitting back and forth on my thoughts about Project Life.  I was scrolling through Tumblr the other night and came across a post about travel journalswhich made me want to stick to how I usually journal, but every morning I’m still picking up the Project Life pocket pages and doing something with them.  I guess I’m still not convinced it’s for me, but I haven’t given up on the idea and…

Journal Journey

I originally posted my Journal Journey series here on Tumblr but I decided to re-do the series on my blog.  I’ve just made it a bit more elaborate and coherent, included better (and more) scans/photos of journal pages, and it is much easier to view on Wordpress.

Part I - Teenage written journals, homework diary doodles (2001-2006)

image
Part II - Collages, Uni magazine, early art journals (2008-2009)

Part III - Altered book, (per)zines, mixed media art, mini art journals (2009-2010)

Part IV - Gig scrapbook, Soul Journaling, 21 Secrets, experiments (2010)

Part V - Monthly art journal, DIY art journal, hybrid journal (2011)

Part VI will be next week and focused on my art journal the year I was doing my Masters in Liverpool.

Someone should have warned me Project Life is addictive!  Yesterday evening and a bit of today was spent on this spread – a quick trip from Nottingham to Durham/Newcastle in 2009 to see my brother.  As you can probably tell from the photo, we went to see Metallica, and then I had a whistle-stop tour of Durham including a trek to the top of Durham…

Contemplating Project Life

Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking about how I will document my 10 months away.  Although I enjoy the way I art journal, it can be time consuming and relies on the art supplies I’ve accumulated in the last four or five years.  I’m hoping that I’m going to be pretty busy with work and life in general, and I’m not going to be able to take my supplies with me (plus I’m conscious about how much space I take up when I get into the zone!) so I think I need to change my approach…

Tying Up Loose Ends

Apologies for dumping the whole post here initially, first time using Publicize (possibly the last!).  I just blogged about one of the projects I’ve been trying to finish - a 52 Things I Love About You deck of cards:

I currently have two major lists of things I need to get done before I move to the US next month.  The first list is all the vital and (mostly) boring stuff I have to do, and the second consists of the fun projects I need to finish before I go.  I’ll probably talk about the other two in another post (if I get around to them!) but the priority is getting a gift finished for my boyfriend, Mike.  The last time I made anything for him was before we were even a couple (see below) so I thought that needed to be rectified…
