Moleskine Moment On A Paint Party Friday
About 3 or 4 years ago I bought this nice Moleskine journal. I never used it because I was afraid I'd mess up the pages. :) I am braver now. I am reminding myself that I came to this blog to play and make messes. The temperature is cooler now. I can leave watercolor crayons in the car while I'm at work and they won't melt. Yes, I am crazy enough to create art in the car in the mornings before work. I have been doing this for the last several years and it really makes a big difference on how I start my work day. So, I've begun playing in this journal. I gesso-ed some pages ahead of time( not in the car. lol ) and then enjoyed scribbling with water color crayons. I can spread the color on one page and while that's drying I can do some journaling on another page. I also tried a transfer.(not in the car.) A photo of my grandmother. I'm determined to get better at this and I know there are a few techniques out there. Still, not too bad for my first attempt. Tomorrow I am looking forward to teaching another work shop at my local arts and craft store. I have decided to redesign the workshop and change the description of the class from Art Journaling to Mixed Media. I say this because I am sharing so many techniques, tricks, ideas etc. that can be used in other areas of art, like altered books, gelli plate, deli paper, working with Citra Solv, and the list goes on. In other words it's not just art journaling. It's everything and anything and what I have decided is that some people may shy away from an art journaling class because they don't like to journal or they think they cannot "do art." I am hoping if I reword the class description it may spark some people's interest enough to give it a try. I am having a really good time with some very creative women and I want the class to keep on growing. I hope you've had a good week and that you have an art filled, peaceful weekend. I am sharing this with some very awesome, creative people over here so go and check it out. I appreciate your taking the time to leave a comment. Thanks for visiting.
