Weekly Art Journal – Weeklong for October 31

for this week, i started with very little. just a bunch of color and pattern:

And I added slowly little bits here and there but it still stayed pretty chaotic with no central image.

And here’s the filled page:

It ended up pretty simple, too.

I decided this would be the end of the weeklong project for now. I am doing something a little different for 2012 and I wanted to get an early start on it to test it. So that’s my project for November and then December means December Daily so I need the creative time for that project. I’ve loved this project and might bring it back later. Let’s see.

Weekly Art Journal – Weeklong for August 29

This week was the end of my book, so I used the last page but since it’s quite small and I was dumb enough to make it even smaller with a wide-trim edge I had very little room for anything. To top it off, I forgot to take a completely empty photo so you have a photo after day 1. You can see how I drew lines to make sure I’d be able to fit in all 7 days.

Alas, it’s pretty boring. Next week will be similar, I’m afraid.

And here’s the filled page:

And that’s the end of book one. On to number two.
