If Roz Stendahl has taught me anything it is that
you can make up a Thing for Month and declare it
and before long people will believe It Is So.
April is International Fake Journal Month
(IFJM, for the cool kids.)
This is my first year participating. Last year I was well into the A to Z challenge and found Roz and wished
I’d seen this, because it is right up my alley.
For one month, I will be journaling as another character doing something completely FAKE. The only way you will know is the beginning of my blog posts will be labeled:
“IFJM: April Fool’s Day” (or whatever day it is).
After that, there will be no clue — I will write and make art as if I am that person
doing THAT thing! You can do it too. It’s not too late. You can do art or write
(so no pressure if you are not an artist), and for those of you who want to do A to Z you can also incorporate this into that! Find out all about IFJM! Don’t be intimidated just because some folks are artists — some are not and they have a blast! You writers can doodle if you think you can’t make art (I’m thinking of Sammy and Daniel . . . ) Come play with us!
BTW, if you don’t have a blog you can also post through Facebook on the IFJM page!
I will be using a moleskin, my first moleskin (so good for travel) and using a Pentalic woodless pencil, Platinum Carbon pens, other pens with whatever ink I can find along the road, and Daniel Smith watercolors — when I can. It’s hard traveling with all that gear! (HINT. HINT.)
Eventually my entire month will be put onto a separate page, but for now the pages will stand alone as if it were me. Which it is. Kinda sorta! I am out the door to buy my tickets! (HINT. HINT.)
Gads this is like playing as a child! SO FUN!
Note: Roz Stendahl’s normal blog is Roz Wound Up.
