over the edge - art jounal

This past Friday and Saturday I taught my first art classes.  They were held at Be Creative in Pitt Meadows.  My 'Over the Edge - Art Journal' class appears to be a hit!  

There was enough interest from folks unable to take the class this time around, that I will hopefully be putting on another class in to be determined.

Thank you to all of my wonderful students who helped make this a really positive experience and a special thanks to Haroldine, who convinced me I could do it.  Thank you so much for your support, Haroldine!!

Here are some pics from the classes.

30 days in your journal

Spent some time last weekend looking at videos from CHA Winter 2012 in Anaheim. Love getting a look at the new products and techniquesout. Paper Clippings did a great job. Because of one of their videos, I found my way to Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog and her "30 days in your journal - a class in the daily practice of art journaling" (check out link in the sidebar).

Love, love, LOVE all the new stencils available from The Crafter's Workshop including Julie's and Dyan Reavley's dylusions line (including the nummy colours of her ink sprays!) and what she does with her art journals.

Really gave me a creative boost and has me back experimenting in my art journals. The class will give me daily inspiration and I hope that 30 days from now, I have some fun pages to show for it.
