I've found a way to make the 'every day' part of Shimelle's Learn Something New Every Day class work for me ... I don't do it everyday ...
I do make sure to think of that day's lesson on the day, but I save up a week's worth of committing it to paper for the weekend. These next pages have been completed for a week but I just haven't had time to photograph them before today.
Any day now you should expect my annual "Where's all the daylight gone? How am I meant to take photos now?" complaint mode to kick in! It's like I can either go out to work during the day OR I can stay home and make use of those precious daylight hours to photograph all my projects ... but I can't do both! ;-)
Anywhoooo ... here's the pages I have managed to photograph in the light! There'll be more to come whenever the sun comes back out.
Sept 12: 'My Summer-time Life'
Sept 13: 'Just Ask'
Sept 14: 'Let's Share Toys'
Hey - alongside each day's lesson, maybe I've also learned how this style of art-journal-ish scrappiness really suits my haphazard nature! Do you think I can get extra credit for that homework?
Along with the fashion image this page also features an illustration from my current favourite 'retro kid's book to chop up and stick down' ... of which I have several:
Sept 15: 'Maybe ... September's not so bad.'
Sept 16: 'Just not for me'
I love parts of it [ie: the clipboard, putting nervous hopefuls at ease, setting out paper and highlighter pens on desks ...]. But the same four walls? Not for me.
And suddenly I felt like the host of a children's party!
Sept 17: 'At least we don't spoil two homes'
- a secondhand bookshop;
- a charity shop;
- an auction room;
- a vintage shop;
- a vintage market and
- 2 church bazaars [where we bought cakes and jam - how stereotypically British was that?!]
I'll see you very soon.
