2nd February Journal: Waking Dream

Here are some selected pages from my second journal of the month of February, Titled "Waking Dream". I've included detail shots this time around.

 Cover. Gelli print, spray inks, acrylic paint, cutouts, paint marker...all of the messy things.


 I really wish I had the time to do this much layering on all of my pages.


 These bleeding heart flower cutouts are inspired by the movie Coraline. Real ones aren't quite as intricate, although they're still really awesome flowers.

 On the right here is one of WAY TOO MANY bee prints that I made on the gelli plate with a hand-cut mask. I don't know what I thought I'd do with all those bees. So, I've been sort of abstract-ifying them, like what I did here by partially covering it in gesso.



 These bird cutouts are painted with silver spray paint. In person they almost look like real metal.


 This tag is Marisa Lerin.

This is my favorite spread in this journal. It's inspired by Beach House's "Heart of Chambers" video.

 My cutter messed up a wee bit on the shopping cart.

 I am desperately trying to be OK with adding things in non-chronological order in my journal. It only makes my OCD twitch a little *chews the wall*.

 The tiniest little park bench.

 The horse image here is a painting by Jennifer Davis, and quite possibly the next print that I'll be buying from her.

 Yep, I have both failure and success on my list of things that scare me. Rock. Me. Hard place.



The end. See ya in a week or so with my next journal, "Thrill Ride".

Open Part 3


This entry is a mess. The pages are out of order, lots of them are kind of pointless because they're mainly text and mostly blurred, but hey, it makes for an accurate representation of the past messy week. I'm just going to dump it all out here and move on.

This journal is full now, mid-month...so I guess I'll start a new one! 2 journals for the shortest month of the year. Weird.













hahaha. Dolphin penises.

Open, Part 2

Here we go with part 2 of my February journal entitled "Open". I'm trying the thing where I add an accompanying soundtrack again as well.




I took all of these photos in ridiculously bright sunlight just so that one strip of black glitter tape on the left side of this spread would be recognizable.

On the right here is a page from my  sketchbook. Sort of word-and-image soup.

More sketchbook stuff.


I love this little shoe! I've had the cut file forever and was just waiting for a good excuse to use it. Thanks a bunch to the friend who mentioned shoes a lot in the conversation on the left.


On the left is the original vision of the "wheelers" from Return to Oz. If you know the movie version, you probably have nightmares about those guys, too.

I did a lot more actual drawing in this batch of spreads than I have lately. The portrait on the right is vaguely referenced from an image of Miranda July.

I love my homemade enamel dots seen on both sides of this spread. Hot glue and nail polish!

This model can pose for me annnnyyyyytiiiime. Heh.

The right side of this spread just destroyed a couple of my paint markers. Good excuse to buy a whole bunch more? I think so.

For the record, I hate that movie. The poster was just relevant to the writing of the day.


I think I'm getting a tiny bit better at sewing on paper without destroying it.

That thank you card on the right will probably get moved to somewhere where it goes better with the opposing page. Expect to see it again.
