Kate Crane Inspired Page
My first post of the year! Hope you all had a pleasurable break. I know, it seems a lifetime ago now. Who can remember it?
Anyways, I'm here with an art journal page. It's not the only one I've made in the last few weeks but it certainly is the only one I'm happy enough with, to share. Mostly because it's a CASE'd design from Kate Crane.
Over the break, I enrolled on Wanderlust, a year-long, online, art journal class. Week one is a series of videos by Kate showing her process for making pages for a mini album. Now I didn't want to make a whole album but I was quite happy to pick one of the pages shown and make my own version of it.
Yes it's a bit messier and freer in style than I'd like but I wanted to try making a page as instructed, in order to learn a different approach to mine. After all, I can now incorporate what I discovered in the process. Keep the aspects I enjoy and leave out the parts I don't.
After all, as I previously mentioned, left to my own devices, my pages are a hot mess and not fit to be uploaded to the web. At least when I'm following a class, I'm not too ashamed of the result.
