The theme for my CJ is 'grids', inspired by Marit's grid album. The possibilities with grids are almost endless, I think. I love it when I receive artwork in the mail and especially to see what everybody has done with 'their grids'.
Here are the pages I received so far:
Of course I had lots of inspiration to make my own pages to add to my CJ...only not enough time yet...
But yesterday I managed to make my first grid page:
I was inspired by the work of Lori Vliegen. She makes great artwork with watercolor and some Micron pens. Her letters are always so beautiful!
For this page I drew my grid first (with pencil!) and filled the grid with leafs and letters. Than I traced the lines with a fine Micron pen and colored it all with my Inktense pencils. I tried to make the same letters as she always does but I definitely need some more practice and a better pen for that...
Still, I'm very, very happy with the results. Especially because I tried something completely different than my usual collages.
By the way, speaking of collages. I made some pages for other CJ's as well:
(The border of flowers on the left is colored with fluorescent Sharpies in pink, orange, red en blue but somehow my scanner can't handle these colours and makes the flowers look pale...)
I have big plans for the cover of my grid CJ and I will to start with it today.
I hope I can show you the results soon!
