still not feeling up to par. Bah! I hate being sick. Enough of that.
My online class is in full swing. We are on day #10 (I list the prompts a day in advance so that people can do them at their own leisure). I love love love seeing what people do with the ideas. It's actually three classes in one since each day there are three prompts: Painting, Collage and journaling. So, it's not just a journaling class, it's a class to give you different ideas that you can take and use to make anything-an altered book, collage, atcs, etc... It's a class where you're not only learning mixed media paint techniques and different ways to layer acrylic paint, but it's also a design and composition class where different ways to collage are taught. It's a journaling class where I give you ideas to pick up the pen and write! It's a class that's designed to have you creating something daily. It's geared towards any level-beginner to advanced. I really do believe that everyone is an artist, that in some way, we're all creative. My goal with the class is to get people art journaling and makin' something. I won't be posting the journal pages that I created for the class on the blog (sorry), but if you take the class, they are all there and you will get a file from me with the prompts and the artwork. I love seeing the pages and the art that everyone is making from the ideas. It's what art is all about-take the idea, make it your own and share what you've made. Woo hoo! Go art! There is more info here if you're interested. :)
I use my journal pages for so many things. My journal is my safe place. It's where I can talk, vent and share what is going on in my head. 99.99% of what I make is in book form-art journal form. I pour everything into this little book, these pages... What you see is what you get, what you see is me. I love the This is my Truth page, because it really is-my art is my truth. I use my journal as a means of communication, expression and a capacious hold all. Sometimes I get a lot of shit for what I say, but you know what? It's my book. My art. My truth and I know I'm not alone. MY journal that I choose to share with you, so you can get a glimpse into my little universe. Thanks for being there.
