Well I know I can not draw and my mind is trying to over think everything as usual. I want to get my hands on something to use as my visual diary that is a little different so I start gathering my ideas and start collecting the basic elements. Paper is on my mind, I wonder where to find a variety of stock papers finally I pop into office works and find they have a large range of art paper.
I look for some textures like canvas and fine art rag paper as well at some more standard drawing paper. I also find charcoal and a variety of drawing tools but I only looked at what they had and did not purchase drawing items.
I already have a variety of paints brushes and pencils to use so I only needed to make the diary I decided to combine paper and digital by using a nice leather ipad case I cut the paper to the size of an ipad and cut out pages to resemble a book. I rough cut the edges to make it more textured. I was thinking about tea staining the pages.
The hard bit is trying to draw my ideas onto paper I can only try. I will work on a couple of pages a week when I finish in May I will bind and glue the finished pages. The end result will be a electronic ipad with my digital inspirations on a slideshow side by side with my hand made visual diary.
