When I got it all together I was quite proud of myself! I only used stuff I already had. The paper is good drawingpaper, acidfree and I used some monoprints on the cover. I might do some more tangling on the cover but so far this is what it looks like. And here are the fist pages:
To choose the word for this year wasn´t too easy. I landed in the word "experience". I love the quote of Albert Einstein: "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science". So I went for that.
The first prompt of the year came from Danielle de Rome and she wanted us to focus on our hands. My hands are my tools and hands together can save this planet. I was thinking of a project in Sigtuna kommun: all students on all stages of education was invited to make drawings of their hands with written messages on them and decorate the hands in every kind of creative way. The hands were all sent to the climate conference in Copenhagen. That was such a wonderful project.
Extra prompt: Make a pie for the pieday! I didn´t know there was a pieday in the US. We have "kanelbullens dag" in Sweden and that must be the closest we get. But I love to bake pies so I tangled one on a gray zendala and on the day 23d of January I made a meatpie for dinner.
Today is the last day in January and tomorrow is the start of Valentangle, hosted by Marguerite Samama! I couldn´t bare myself though. Last year I saw a post from Lynn Shelton Mead were she had made a "bittybook" with tiles she had created and later on one with Bijou´s. I loved the idea but didn´t know how to make this. But as always the solution was to watch Youtube again! And here is my little tiny bittybook that can carry my Valentangles 2020 on Bijous!
For once I am a day ahead with my Valentangle day 1! Marguerite has made up a wonderful borderpattern to start with and she calls it V&A. My day 1:
I am looking forward to this! And right now I am in need of Bijou so .....
