Some fun ones this week with an unintentional color theme. The figs were inspired by this. "Blister please with those wings in your spine" is a line from a song I've had stuck in my head on and off for... seven years now. The result is probably the most emo card I've ever done, but I love how it turned out and I love that this project has let me play with different styles in a very low-commitment way.
But I think my favorite is "the best eras never really end" - a card I made thinking of the "end of an era" card from January, and repeating its color scheme. The January card came about when I was thinking of a whole bunch of upcoming program and staffing changes in our Tunisia office, and the August card after a reunion happy hour with one of the colleagues I was most sorry to see leave. I like that aspect of this project, and of art journaling in general - that you can have a conversation with yourself across the ages.
As a creative challenge, I am decorating a playing card every day in 2015. More context on this project is here and you can see all past card posts here.
