I wish this paper would be available in a more conservation-minded form. Love the colour, coverage & workability.
Thanks, Roz, for creating the IFJM, it's been great fun and an interesting learning curve. I was surprised to stall time-wise halfway through, and then able to pick up again in the last week after a busy spell of work passed. (I know, not a great way to manage - supposed to be on the day, not catch-up... I thought I could juggle it) Better to think out the details of the character ahead of time too, as suggested. I didn't enough. But thoroughly enjoyed it all the same.
I find the paper lovely to work on, and the colour easier as a beginning point than blank white paper! Likely just in my head... Once the next few days of work are done I will jump in with your Strathmore project... Thanks again.

On the 211. Stuck in traffic for 1 1/2 hours at turcotte [sic] due to emergency work. Poor lady in front fell asleep, had to wake her at the metro. At least someone gave her his seat 1 hour in.
Wish I could have asked her what her boots are, before she sat down & nodded off. They look great for work. Rugged yet comfortable I bet.

First try at Roz Stendahl's International Fake Journal Month challenge, and first blog. Might as well dive right in...
The journal [fictional: IFJM stands for International Fake Journal Month - see Roz's linked image to right] is a running notation of dream jobs - freelance work in photography, film & painting for the non-existant Mindful Gallery, MF Publishing, and MF film, all in Montreal. The IFJM Blog postings are an extension of the fictional account.
Paper is one grocery bag, cut up. Lyra colour pencils, prismacolour fine line marker, ballpoint pen, pencil. Pages are 6 x 7 " To be bound when complete.
Stuck in the airport overnight - at least I found pencils - thought I packed them.
The poster makes me want to paddle. Would Monet kayak in 2011?
