Putting the journaling in Art Journaling

Time is Flying (art journal page)
I decided to go ahead and sign up for Dina Wakley's Art Journal 101 class.  Although the class has been available to take in archived form for a while, this is the first time in over a year that she has offered it "live."  I hemmed and hawed because I've been busy with Shimelle's Something from (Almost) Nothing class and catching up on my scrapbooking.  I'm realizing it's hard for me to do more than one class at a time. 
But I signed up, and I'm glad I did! The class is really offering me a lot of insight already into the "journaling" side of art journaling.  Some of the prompts have brought up some strong emotion in me and made me realize, as I say in this page, "I worry that time is flying away from me."  If this is any indication of where the class will take me, I know it's going to be another winner!

I really like how you have used the dictionary page within this piece, and I understand your sentiments entirely!

This is an amazing page Rinda! I'm with you on time flying, times I wish I could be a time traveler like Claire in the Outlanders series. LOL

Oh, it's FAB!! I just love it :-) I was so tempted by this class but the timing is wrong for me :-( I hope it runs live again before too long! Can't wait to see what else you produce x

what a great piece - and I think most of us can relate to that same worry. I really like the subtle hand print and the fading butterflies.

I also signed up for an Art Journal class but it is the digital one with Patti Knox. I did consider the one with Dina but I like to keep my hands clean!
