Art Journalista Update...

We are moving right along in the Art Journalista class!  I've got three new pages to share with you...


In this one, I painted on top of a whole pile of washi tape, rubbed the paint off the taped areas, and then took a few of the washi tape pieces off to do my journaling...


The background on the next two are a combination of acrylic paint, neocolor II crayons, Liquitex liquid ink, and Dark Calico Mr. Huey spray ink.  Images are from a thrifted black and white photography book, and the "Where Women Create" magazine that I used to make this journal...


I love Teresa's teaching style, and I'm feeling extra inspired with this journal - really free!

If you want to check out the class - click here, or on the Art Journalista widget in the sidebar.

Okay, I keep telling myself I'm going to wait on signing up for any more classes, but I just couldn't resist signing up for The Perfect Collection by Shimelle.  It's all about using up every last scrap of your kits/collections; and I've been hearing tons of good things about it!  I haven't gotten access to the class yet, but I will keep you posted!

Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends; and if you are in the U.S.  have a safe and happy 4th!

WOW, these backgrounds are gorgeous, how did you get them perfectly mixed, LOVE THEM!!

How fun that idea with the tape is, will have to do this.

Your writing is always so neat, did you use a white sharpie on that last one?

I can't seem to write over my painted pages, think that's why my pages mostly have just art and no words.

So glad your having fun in the class and I liked all your lists for them.

That new class sounds great, enjoy it!! Do I dare tell you about a new Christmas in July all month long party?? Just saw it this morning. Go to my blog and click on the Lucious Journey link on the right side and it will take you there. It's going to be so fun, but if your busy then no worries.

Have a happy and safe holiday today also!!
