“Just finished reading Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Road’ and felt inspired to do a journal page. I wanted to try out a new material - Safmat, a transparent film, from Letraset that you can print onto.
I edited a couple of photos of winter trees in photoshop and printed them onto the Safmat. I then peeled off the backing and stuck the transparent film with the printed image into my Moleskine sketchbook. I had used a grey PanPastel on the page first, deliberately patchy, to create the dusty landscape depicted in the book.
Quite pleased with the Safmat, it is very thin and ‘almost’ invisible, so a good way of getting photos into your journal without creating too much bulk.”
Married with two children, a stepdaughter and two grandaughters. I am fortunate to live surrounded by beautiful countryside, yet only a few miles from the Georgian city of Bath. I have a passion for Visual Journaling and mixed media. When I was first starting out I found a lot of inspiration scattered around the web. So I decided to create a resource for anyone wanting to keep a journal and www.journalcraft.co.uk was born.
I previously spent 25 years in the IT industry, and still advise small businesses.
