Thanks for the feedback, and an Art Journalista Update...

Hey there everyone!  Thanks so much for the feedback on what types of classes you would like to see me offer.  Please feel free to keep the suggestions coming.  I'm getting some good ideas, and right now I'm shooting for the first of the year to have at least one class all set to go.  That may seem like a long way off, but it will go fast, and I want to make sure it will be fabulous and chock full of good learning and fun!

Anyways, I've got a new Art Journalista assignment to share with you today! It's all about grids, pattern and color.

Here's how it turned out.  I call it "Sweet Dreams and Light..."


I set myself a goal of using only images from the magazine I made the journal out of, and I did it.  It's fun to have limitations sometimes.  It gets you thinking harder...


The right side was one of the pages that I left in the original magazine when I made it into a journal. I loved the image so much I didn't change it.  Just added a title, a little doodling and a quote...

I hope your Wednesday is wonderful!  Thanks for visiting and I will see you again soon!

How very cool! Love the quote you've used, too. Very inspirational. Totally agree with you about imposing limitations on yourself making you think harder. Beautiful!

Michelle, how pretty this is and so different from your usual, colorful and filled up pages.

How cool that you did this challenge and by no surprise it came out so pretty and COOL!! Way to go on only using the clippings and making it work. You should do these more, really like them.

Oh and another class thought, kinda like Marcia said but also when to know your page is done, how do you know when to stop or when to add more??? I like her idea!!

Can't wait till January, it will be here quick but not quick enough, haha!!

Thanks Michelle!
