Hello! I'm SpyGirl, Anne's avatar!
What? You don't know about IFJM? Well, CLICK HERE!
This is one of my ideas for IFJM 2013: to use patterns or textiles that I have at home or at work and design an outfit for Mizz SpyGirl. That part will go in a Moleskine journal and a scan of the spread will begin the post.
Then I'll let you know how I'd digitize the original art/ motifs/ etc.
Take this medallion print, for instance. This is something I brought home from the day job to get some extra offsite hours into my paycheck. I am not very happy about needing to do this, so I'm procrastinating by writing this post. Ha.
Trace one set, make a Custom Scatter Brush > Draw a circle > apply the Custom Brush.
But nooooooo... the client thinks this method "looks like stationary" so I'm going to hand draw things with the Pencil Tool for a cruder look (sample on right below). It's going to take HOURS. Job security, right?
Of the many ideas I have, this will be one of the easier to execute as far as getting the journaling done goes. But maybe instead I'll use pages from an 08 collage journal (or make a new collage journal?) as the print starting point. I've got until April to decide, so no hurry.
