Today is day seven of 30 Days in Your Journal and the students have been blowing me away with their talent and creativity! Here is a small sampling of the student work and a few of their comments as well:
"My first art journal spread! Loving this class. Have wanted to do art journaling for ages and am thrilled to have crossed that imaginary line in the sand. It's so freeing! And it turns out I really love watercolors."
Jen has posted some thoughts about the class and about journaling on her blog. Here's a quick excerpt:
"What's so awesome about this class is that she really focuses on showing you how to fit art journaling into your life every single day...for just 10 minutes. So you don't do a page or a spread a day - you work on a two-page spread for several days, adding a bit at a time....I think it just might be the key to actually being able to art journal more frequently - because finding chunks of time to sit and play is usually what prevents me from doing it as much as I'd like."
"I'm loving learning new techniques and playing with new mediums - trying new things! Julie your daily videos are so well thought out and to the point. Thank you. I love being able to "see" into your brain and how you process and make design decisions."
getting back into the groove of everyday art journaling
watching the videos, they make me smile every day
seeing all the creativeness in this class
learning something new every day."
"I'm loving that I can get an entry done in 10 minutes, but I can spend more time if I want to. I'm loving Julie's videos - you're fun to watch and I love your enthusiasm! I'm loving that I don't care if I mess up. Paint can cover anything! :)"
Martha has a post on her blog sharing how this layout came together over several days.
From her blog: "I have spent the last 5 days immersed in Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's class 30 Days in your Journal. You can still sign up for it and it is SOOOO worth it."
You can also visit Michelle's blog to see her page-in-progress.
This is just a small sampling of the inspiring art play from class. There are a lot more really fantastic pages from these amazing students. You can see some of them here.
