Here are my journal(s) for the Kelly Kilmer. here are the first 4 pages
These books are made using scraps from magazines and templates from Kelly who encourages a lot of individual interpretations of her instructions. I have used as focal, this time, on line images collected over many years.
This is page two where we were to experiment with transparent papers. it did not work so I ripped it out. The green is actually transparent from a long ago swap and the lower one says "it's the good girls who keep diaries the bad girls never have time" attributed to may west.
This is actually page 4 as Blogger likes to mess with downloading. it is about lettering size and layering. Chris and I had discussed visiting the wineries today and we both never followed through. I remembered that when I started to make this page.
below is page 3. It started out very different with a very neutral background that did not work out. it was torn out and this one created in pastel pink as Kelly encouraged working in a least favorite color and adding colors of different shades. It was a good learning experience as the neutral offered a great potential in another setting and so it was used in page 4.
Kelly had a slide show of her original small Swatches books and I thought I should make a small book like that and just repeat a little more casually the template and prompt as i had made a small book.
Since i collect phrases and words from all kinds of magazines it seemed a good time to use them and have fun, this was a real fast page. This book is called My Little Book.
Kelly uses lots of Washi tape. i think she must have had it the day they first imported it from Japan. Up to this year I resisted it and remain a little unsure as to how and when to use it'
Ah we better head to the kitchen or dinner will be breakfast!
