Most of you know that I love to Art Journal, time and time again it has been my refuge, my security blanket and my place to go and wander with my art supplies and ideas floating around in my head.
With art journaling, there are really no rules. That's the beauty of this sacred practice. But at the same time, if it's something you haven't ever done before, it can be intimidating just like any new medium. Or, on the other hand, if you are familiar with art journaling but looking for new ideas and fresh techniques--taking a workshop can be just the remedy you are looking for to spark that creative art journaling muse.
You never know where it may lead you.
So many pages of mine have led to larger art works or color palette discoveries.
I love the fact that when you journal, the door is wide open to any and all possibilities.
Having said all that, I'm excited to share that I'm teaching an art journaling workshop along with 3 other mixed media artists and journalers sponsored by Create in Arlington, Texas, June 16th, 2016.
Mary Beth Shaw, Nathalie Kalbach, Gina Rossi Armfield and myself will be taking you through a full day of activities, classes, and processes around art journaling and more. Many techniques you can also apply to larger works of art in addition to art journaling.
During my class, you will learn about layering acrylics to create interesting backgrounds, how to create characters such as birds, fish, and or owls that have quirky personalities and then tie them into a whimsical art journal page. I can not wait!!!!!
Here is the deal though, the space is LIMITED---so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. Most supplies are included for the work shop and you also will have an All Access Pass to the great American Scarpbook Convention!!!
4 teachers, supplies, tons of inspiration and access to a huge convention--sounds like an arty party to me!!
