My Adventures in Art Journaling.....
I have been going down the rabbit hole that is sketchbooks and art journaling....going from one workshop to another....learning new techniques, getting different ideas on what art journaling can be, what a sketchbook is really for....and with each page, it feels like giving birth and starting all over again. I had NO idea art journaling could be so intensive...but maybe that's just me? In this post are pages I've done in the 21Secrets2012 hosted by DirtyFootPrintsStudio. Love that the classes are short and sweet but very intensive. Not all are my style, but each one has something to offer. The above page I made in the 15 Minutes to Sanity class by Gina Rossi Armfield.
WordPlay class by ChristineMasonMiller
Journaling Our (H)Eart Out by Nolwenn Petitbois
IntuitivePaintedLayers class by Dina Wakley
And my latest page from The Practice of SelfAwareness thru Visual Journaling by Traci Bunkers
All of these pages, except for the first one, took me hours to complete as I worked thru each layer. The finished pages aren't great art but they were so worth the time and effort. Look for more next week where I'll be posting about my adventures in Joynaling with Jane Davenport...we are making our own journals from a vintage book and drawing our own Faeries! xo
