Some "before" journal pages
I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at some "before" journal pages. I created some of these in classes as sample pages for prompts/techniques that I was demoing.
I like to play with my art supplies. I tend to work fast, picking out papers by colors and textures that I enjoy together. I think of it like getting dressed, "does this look good together?" I like working with different colors to make the page pop! I don't stress, nor do I spend a lot of time on a page. I don't over think it, nor do I worry about it. If I don't like it, I finish the page and then turn it. I let it go. There are more pages to work on in the book. A page being 'good or bad' isn't the important thing. It's the process and the experience that should be priority. I'll show you the finished pages soon.

Journal page love
Help make Kara's dream a reality!
I love this idea! Recycle plastic. Wash it, let it dry. Draw on it and then stick it in your journal!
Stuff I want to try cooking:
Home Fries (using sea salt instead)
Honey Graham Crackers
Chocolate peanut butter cupcakes
Loved this article on Al "Grandpa Munster" Lewis. I've heard this interview several times with him and it's well worth listening to.
Tristan's been a busy bee making his own Lego short films. Yes, he did it all with no help from me or his Dad. It's stop motion animation. He's having fun with it. You can see the videos here.
Finally, I have not one but three workshops in June. Two are this coming weekend at Zinnia and the Art Bar. Info on my June workshops is here. I hope to see you there!
