Do you have Art Journaling Fever?
August 21, 2010
First, thank you. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments! The lavish praise feels so nice and I really appreciate it!!
Secondly, I went to teach at The City Quilter today and a few of my students told me that they are obsessed with art journaling due to Art Journaling Week. One student shared that she hasn't done dishes or laundry this week. She has let all responsibilities drop so that she can participate in art journaling week! Got to love that! Check out some of the journal pages they brought in to show off:
That gold snowflake-y thing in the spread above is a piece of a paper napkin!!!
Liz made her art journal from loose papers and some old book covers she found on the mean streets of New York City! How cool is that?
How about you? Are you obsessed?
And now, Answers to Questions:
Q: I would love to share all of my art work that you've inspired. As you may remember, I am a high school teacher. I would also love to share my students' journals because they were also inspired by you. But, alas, I don't have a blog.
A: No worries! You can still share your art journal pages! Upload them to a free site like flickr or photobucket.
Q: On the video you said you were using a small round brush. what size was that?
A: The really small one is a size 0.
Q: Where do you find your quotes? I have looked on line, but rarely find ones there. Maybe I am looking on the wrong sites.
A: There are lots of great resources online. I like Brainy Quote and the Quote Garden. But I find most of my quotes in books or magazine articles and save them in a little quote inspiration notebook.
