Finally had time to play in my art journal again. This one is a bit Frida Kahlo inspired (due to the color scheme of the top band and the topic - illness & recovery). It's about being grateful for finally being well and about how panicked I am with everything I need to do. I really like the finished product. More importantly, I loved making it! As I mentioned, I recently re-started art journaling through a class taught by Dina Wakley at Get it Scrapped. You can read about my journey into art journaling here and here. By the way, for those who asked, I used Strathmore spiral-bound Watercolor cold press 400 Series (140 lb.) pads for my current journals. One is 11"x15" and the other is 9"x12." I buy them at Michael's Craft store, either on sale or with a coupon. Since they're almost full, I just ordered some of these from Dick Blick.
Anyway, Dina just announced that she's offering her introductory class - Art Journaling 101- beginning on March 22nd. Since I jumped into her courses mid-way and because I don't have any classes planned for March, I'm thinking of signing up for it. It comes with a $10 off coupon for a digi-art journal class to be offered in April. You can check out the announcement here. Anyone else tempted?
