Art Journal Class...
Along comes Miss Roni of Ink Stains. I have blogged about her before but this time she is my teacher. Roni is actually giving tons of lessons for making an art journal. We have no idea what we will be doing or what supplies we will be using. This is part of the fun for me. I have lots of supplies, especially since I won Roni's grand giveaway. This will be the perfect opportunity for me to use these art mediums I own. I have always thought that if I purchase and own something I will automatically become adept/skilled...like the time I bought a brand new piano and paid for it for years. Did I ever really learn to play that piano? No. Same for lots of other things through the years. Osmosis just does not work with me. :o)
Thank you Roni for offering your expertise and sharing with us. I am looking forward to our next lesson.
I will be using individual sheets of papers so that I may put them into a 3-ring binder. That will allow me to utilize lots of sizes and thicknesses and not be limited by any one type of pre-purchased journal. I have been collecting (all my life I have been collecting!) some pertinent ephemera for this journal too as I want it to reflect me and my likes and dislikes.
After all this is MY ART JOURNAL...

Your journal cover is gorgeous! I feel the same way about working with different mediums and the class I just took with Donna Downey helped me to just give it a try :)ReplyDelete
I've been following Roni and I want to do this journal as well. So I'll be following you as you follow Roni. You are off to a great start. I'm still clearing the deck and finding all those supplies that I've been saving. I, also hope its not too messy! After all, I've just cleaned! ;^)ReplyDelete
It's gorgeous! What fun! Looks to me like you're quite artsy. Hugs!ReplyDelete
Oh! You are off to a wonderful start! Your cover Is beautiful! I had to giggle that osmosis doesn't work with me either (as I sit here and look at the beautiful dulcimer sitting in it's stand). Have a wonderful day! TwylaReplyDelete
I love the cover the little bird is perfect! Hugs P.S>I'm having my very first blog hop today Please stop by and link up your lovely blog.ReplyDelete
I love your journal cover! Looks like you are having lots of fun playing with your new supplies. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create next!ReplyDelete
Yea for you! I'm kinda the same. Always wanting to do more than I am capable of and hoping that just by having the supplies somehow I will automatically figure it all out but hasn't worked so far. I've been wanting to art journal for a while and keep trying to get a start but never get very far with it. I've wanted to make travel journals with the last few trips we've taken, but even those don't pan out. :/ Looks like you are off to a great start. Have fun! Best wishes, TammyReplyDelete
Sherry it looks wonderful! What a beautiful page to start your journal off with!!ReplyDelete

Do you still have the paino? You know it is not too late to start to play. I have played all my life. It is a nice escape at times.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
I love that you are making a journal and trying new things. Your cover looks great. Won't this be a fun place to show off some of the stuff you have collected? I love a project that starts out as an experiment with no pressure. Can turn out to be the best kind. Have fun with it and keep us posted. Thanks for your visit this week and for "shopping with me."ReplyDelete
