Fuck the algorithm. Follow your fucking heart.
Continuing from my blog post How to start a Rainbow Glue Book I’m sharing a glue book video today, of me working on some of the pages in this notebook. The red pages as it happens.
My intention was to share a bit of all the yummy rainbow pages, but time moves in mysterious ways when you’re filming. Or rather, I think I can cram in more than is possible into one video…
Glue Book process video
Anyway, here’s my video. I hope you enjoy it. I got to the red pages, but also share my project tray and some pages from different magazines that will end up inside this glue book at a later date.
click here if you can’t see the video embedded above, and while you’re there please like and leave a comment on the video as well as this blog post. It will make my day. :-)
I glued down an image of a Dalahäst and then went on to talk about when we visited Dalarna here in Sweden and saw how the Dalecarlian horses are hand painted. Here’s that video (very short in case you want to watch it):
Red pages at the start of the glue book, styled with mom’s red reading glasses:
Now they’re much fuller, but I didn’t take photos of them yet because I think I need to add the last details before the “finishing photos” at a later date. But here’s my favorite studio coffee mug with my Rainbow composition notebook journal, because they match so well together:
Wishing you have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
Blog Posts on Red
I like red a lot. Here’s a few blog posts that come up when you search my blog for the color red:
- Red Tote – sewing
- Red Calligraphy Ink – in my journal
- Red Christmas Arm Chair – a gift
- Ruby Red Pages – art journaling
- Red Vintage Suit Case – thrift find
It’s always a treat to see a new blog post from iHanna pop up in my Feedly. Lovely insight into your creative process and an extra treat with the visit to Dalarna to see the painted horses. Also I love the close up of the studio cup with a little bit of paint on it!
Do you read Austin Kleon’s blog? He wrote recently about searching outside the algorithm, which I was reminded of when I read the quote you started your blog with. Absolutely agree!!
Thanks Ruth, you know I love my studio mug SO much and use it every time we’re there. Thank you again for sending it to me!
I don’t always read Austin’s blogs but check in at times and did check out this specific one. Thanks for the encouragement! xo
Väldigt roligt att se all din kreativitet! Härligt! Och jag ska komma hit igen och titta mer ingående och läsa.
Tack för besöket, ja kom gärna tillbaka och läs vidare! :-)
Is it really necessary to ruin your post with disgusting profanity? I won’t be following you anymore…
Dear Debe, I do not know you and I do not understand you, so I will not cry to see you go. I don’t think you’ve ever commented here before, so that this is the first thing you say to me makes me think you are sitting on high horses and need learn to move on, without leaving any comments at all in the future. It is never necessary to disagree with people you don’t know or call what they write or chose to quote “disgusting”. That is rude I think.
Also. The profanity as you call it is inside a quote, ie not said by me, and it is not directed to any one human or sentient being, but towards “the algorithm” that too many people put a lot of energy into beating or understanding, and I find that sad and unnecessary. It takes up a lot of brain power to try to post at the “right time” on instagram for example, and instead I think a lot more of us should just follow or hearts, just like the quote say. My blog is all about what is important to me and it is ALL inside my heart, so that you chose to leave because one word that you don’t like says more about you than me. Bye!
