Roz Stendahl has a project going in April that she calls Fake Journal Month. I decided to join in and my fake journal is going to be on individual papers. I have them ready. They were made by painting Dr. Martins inks on a sheet of hotpress watercolor paper and then tearing it into 4 1/2" x 6" sheets. I had some extras so I used one to try some things out. I used a nib in a dip pen to try writing with the ink but it was too scratchy and didn't work at all. The gouache worked pretty well although when it's really watery it beads up a bit at first. My Pitt pen worked okay too. So I think these will be my main tools. I might add some collage to the works too.
Now to think of what my fake journal will be about. It's not supposed to be about my life as I put in my real journal so that's something to think about and I only have a few days to do that.
What about you? Do you want to try doing a fake journal? Check out Roz's blog and see.
