Landscape & Lettering - January 2013

Landscape & Lettering – January 2013

Some of you might remember my ‘How many days for 99 pages?’ Challenge — that I posted about back in November. I’m still working at it, and I thought I’d share the status!

I’m up to 71 journal pages…in 131 days…which adds up to a bit more than a page every two days. Not super prolific, but with that ‘challenge’ in my mind I know I’ve created a lot more pages than I was previously.

It’s been fun, and it feels good.

Here are a few more recent pages using a few different techniques I’m playing with (including the usual colored pencil:)

Flowers at Cafe Dawn - created with wash  pencils

Flowers at Cafe Dawn – created with wash pencils

Ski Run Letter Play

Ski Run Letter Play – colored pencil only


Cold and Crisp – painted background and white pen

I hope to play around with different techniques in the new year. I love my Prismacolor pencils (especially at the cafe), but I wanna get messy and try some new things!

What are some of your favorite journaling techniques? I’d love for you to share!

Happy Journaling!
