Creating a Visual Diary

2016 marks the launch of the #ivbncrafting community of makers, doers, crafters.

The intent is to develop your own visual diary using a set structure that is updated weekly, you can tag your work using the #IvBnCrafting across social media – (Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest).  The best things I have ever made came from developing intricate visual diaries, and the most creative ideas have come from the juxtaposition of these diary entries.  They are a wonderful thing to be able to look back on and can be incredibly inspiring.  Ahead of each week you will know the basic materials you need if you want to follow exactly, however this is not constrained, I generally tend to work on the fly a bit and allow what happens to happen.

This is a welcome into my creating world as I believe anybody can create under the right circumstances and for me it is a motivation to know that I am working along side people.  On the other side I do plan to concurrently develop my drawing skills from 1/10 with A Drawing A Day, it is easy to share beautiful work, not so easy to share developing the beautiful work, there is a vulnerability in letting it all hang out, good and bad.

Have you been crafting, use the hashtag #IvBnCrafting.
