A Scrapy Art Journal

I wanted to find another fun way to rid myself of all of these hoarded scraps and bits of papers without having to resort to throwing them out. And I thought it would be nice to use them as each one represents a project or painting I have worked on. So I decided to try my hand and creating pieced together pages and then binding them with my all time favorite binding. This is a free class but membership is required to my creative social community. Membership is free of course. Sign up here and then join the GAJ Exclusives group. There you will find this and other free projects/ lessons.

Eclectic Altered Art Journal

I started out as an altered book artist. When I became interested in art journaling it was a natural transition for me to use an altered book.

At first there were very few artists doing this. But now the trend has kind of taken over. I see altered book journals everywhere now. It is a beautiful thing and I will always love them. But, I wanted a change, something different. And I have noticed other artists are feeling this way too. I didn’t want to leave the ‘old book as a new book’ idea, or the idea of recycling and up-cycling.

Painted Faces I with Christy Sobolewski

This is a painting workshop focused on creating imperfect portraits in art journals. What you learn in this class is my unique way of creating ‘journal girl’ faces and painting them with acrylics. I think of my portraits as ‘perfectly imperfect’ because they are never perfectly aligned, they may or may not meet standards for required beauty. They are each one unique and quirky. A lot like me really. Probably a lot like you are too.
