Journal January 2011 Day 11 Crossword Puzzle

Journal January 2011 Day 11 Crossword Puzzle, Milliande Journal January Tutorial Video Series

Untitled Document


 
It is that time of the year again .Art Journal January ..a time to crack open a brand new art journal and let me and my muse loose amongst it's pages. I am interested in playing art ..not for any particular outcome in mind but for the sake of the process, of pushing myself to explore my limitations, my creative boundaries and then push a little harder to break right through them if my muse is game :-)

Art Journaling or Visual Journaling is becoming increasingly popular as an artform in and of itself . How to keep a journal or indeed how to keep an art journal is an individual choice each artist makes. Some keep a sketchbook type journal noting down snippets of each days activities, interesting things spotted and doodle sketches. Some create more of a diary like art journal working through the emotions and problems of each day . Some keep a journal with ideas for larger art projects . There is no right or wrong way on How to keep an Journal . Keeping an Art Journal can be as simple as one daily diary to keeping art journal stacks .. for different types of journaling .. the choice is endless and one can get as creative as the muse dictates .

Art Journal January 2011 Day 11
As many Mixed Media Artists like myself, I tend to go through phases of using different art supplies, playing with photography, art journaling, mixed media painting and fibre arts ... mostly .
Some of my favorite art supplies pen and ink drawing pens and dipping pens, watercolor aquabrushes and acrylic paints.. How to Paint ..How to Draw .. How to be Creative..these are questions many beginner artists ask themselves ..yet there is no hard and fast rule ..
here I share my process the way I taught myself how to paint.. the way I learned how to draw ..the way I play art .. I dont belive there are mistakes in art making it simply is how I express myself at the time I pick up a tube of paint..swing a pencil or carve a stamp ... no validity is necessary for me.. so take a peek at my process if you like in these how to video tutorials for mixed media art

For the past few years I have also created Art Journal January Videos Series, challenging myself on how long I can last in January to Art Journal and Video Tutorial a Page a day .. I have yet to manage a full month ;-) ...but here I will share all the art journaling videos day by day .. Sometimes the muse is challenged when put under time pressure... sometimes she simply thrives on the challenge.. so I let each day arise as it comes..rest assured all videos will remain available long after january has been put to rest :-)

Journal Januray 2011 Day 11 with Milliande Crossword puzzle

Art Journal January 2011 Day 11
Crossword Puzzle

Starting out at the end ...Z for Zebra's

I am intriqued by the idea of staying focussed on a particular design inspiration idea and seeing how far , how differently and how creatively I can interpret that idea ..and most importantly for those who have followed art journal january for the last few years ... for HOW LONG can I last :-)
So to start this years Art Journal January ..I am beginning at the end .. with Z for Zebra

 

Zebra Pattern Milliande Art Journal January 2011 The Zebra as Design Inspiration




I am intending to be inspired by shape, form, line ,object and texture of the ZEBRA~ to see what my muse comes up with when she plays for Z for Zebra
~ I intend to challenge myself to see how far I can take this concept, how I can jump out of my own box of what I perceive a Zebra Pattern to be...
~ I shall play as many days as I can creatively embrace the zebra..until I cannot think of no more feasable ways of interpreting this design source..



My Muse Contemplates

It is interesting how many thoughts pop out when I contemplate the starting point of the zebra.. the graphic elements associated with it ... and then the journey my muse takes to find a common thread ... so the obvious connection for me is the black and white design element ... the stripes or perceived stripes.. the uniqueness of each individual fragment combined to a unified, cohesive whole .. the outline and camouflage design element ... the brightness and boldness of pattern against its environement ...

Moving to comparison, finding likeness in different animals , comparing patterns and color choices of mother nature... exploring the nature of a line, vertically, diagonally, randomly , orderly ...

Design Elements can cause a shift in me, the focus on one particular element in search of its common element for the next art journal page... the observation of ..who arrives first at my muses door ... commonaiity or individuality ..and the surrendering to the flow of what arises...

When my eyes are cast over my environment, the array of art supplies on my table , the cat parading ove the art journal page, the bird arriving at the feeder ..my use has a starting point ... she looks for possible candidates that can dance happily hand in hand with my ZEBRA design element ..it changes the nature of the way I play.... it pushes me to be still and search for the connection ...

The Daily Push ... being completely and utterly tired out from this experience of working 12-14 hours a day to get this art journal january video etcout every day adds another unique element ..it slows my mind down to a different pace... tiredness opens doors that are previously firmly shut ..and the muse enters a new dance yet again ...I do like to observe this challenge within me and embrace each day of this search for connection ....


without further ado ... Day 11
