I got to spend some time with women who have never art journaled before. I tried really hard to get them excited about doing it. I had four exercises for them to try out and experience different ways to create a page. I had fun but they were so quiet it was hard to tell if they enjoyed it or not. I hope at least one of them was inspired to keep it up.
At the dollar store, I found foam alphabet puzzels and they work great as stamps and only a dollar. Whoo hoo! I used them on the words fun and art in the journal page above.
I have been inspired by my friend Paulette to look for images in the backgrounds.
Her name is Mirium and she is a foreigner, from where I do not know, but she is quite the fashion diva and is very exotic. I think I could make up a whole story about her.
It sure does feel good to be back to painting.
