New Art Journal





This is one of my face paintings. I have never been able to draw let alone paint faces before taking a workshop with dj pettitt . She was wonderful. If she can teach me how to paint a face she can teach anyone. It still takes me 6 times longer than her - yet I am getting it. Thanks again dj. I am using this painting as the first of the art journal pages for the 31 days of art journaling challenge with Misty Mawn. I will use it for Ex Libris art show coming up at PFAA in March. Which I am also co-curating with Deb and Cathy. I plan to make the book base on Alice in Wonderland.

Hi! I stumbled onto your blog via Misty's blog. I just began to get back into my visual journaling but I didn't link myself to the group because I found out about it kinda late. But going back to visual journaling was one of my goals for the new year so I'm doing it regardless. First off, I love your self portrait. You did good. I'm going to try my hand at this in a couple days. Secondly, I really dig your "going green" piece! I can't crochet but I knit and one of my goals this year is to knit something, at least ONE thing, other than a scarf.
OK, this is getting long. LOL! Good luck and keep on posting!
