Spent several hours yesterday working on the above pages for a new class (name and description coming VERY soon! YES it involves making your own background papers.) that I will be debuting in Northern California in October. I'm insanely excited about it. I've been planning it in my head for some time now and now it's time to bring it into fruition.
Speaking of excitement, if you enjoy my work you may be interested in the Autumn issue of Art Journaling. If you have a second to vote, they're asking folks to choose between two cover options for the issue as well. Both cover choices are my journal pages. I'm very grateful and yet anxious about it at the same time. It's always a bit nerve wracking to put yourself out there. People may say to me, "But you post your journal pages all of the time." I counter that I do it to encourage others to create and that I feel safe on my blog. I haven't submitted to any publications in a very long time so I'm interested in seeing what the reaction is.
