Art Journal.

Totally enjoying the adventure of the Art Journal Challenge. So many amazing pages are being created. Wonderful sharing. I wanted to work on it all last week - finally this morning I was able to play. I am finding a free-er me. Letting go. My first page is about looking 4 balance.

    Alright, that's it! Your first entry in your journal blew me away! I've been thinking about signing up for this art journal class and seeing your entry I knew I had to do this! I need to be free-er too and I think this is just the thing! Thanks!

    That is an awesome page! And although I'm in the challenge I don't feel intimated, not that it isn't amazing. This is growth right? Doing what I know I can do and accepting what I can't.
    Anyway, thanks for sharing and I'm excited to see what else you come up with.

    Very cool page. Beautiful. Inspiring. Also, I love the new title block of your web page! You continue to be a huge source of inspiration for me. Maybe one day, I'll be able to think of myself as an artist...

    That piece of work is just so cool. I am totally digging this art journal challenge too. I can't wait to start mucking around on week two's challenge. I have Wednesday off so I think I will just absorb everything then.
    By the way, thanks for your comment about my journal. That sure made my day.

    Ali - I was in your first workshop this weekend. Today You.... or Today We (I took the liberty to change the theme to suit my needs). Thank you so much. You really are amazingly talented. And I learned a lot about combinations of patterned paper that are NOT made by the same manufacturer. Great stuff. I went home and almost completed the book. Plan to give (mail) it to my brother and sister-in-law for their anniversary next week. I'll be interested in her response - she's an artist (masters degree in art, I think). I also really wanted to thank you for your comments about Treasury of Memories (aka: TOM). I love that store. They are a family there and I never knew if that was normal/usual or not b/c TOM is the only LSS I've got. Not only are they a family, but they love their customers. They know my name. When I walked in last week, they asked all about my recent trip to Italy. They were SO EXCITED that I was taking a class with you (and one with Tracy). They have created this amazing family in and outside the walls of that store. If I'm having a bad day, I have to go there b/c I know they'll make me feel better - even by simply remembering my name. I, too, wish you lived closer to TOM... imagine the pick-me up they could give you when you're in a creative slump. They always have FRESH NEW ideas. They are always SO EXCITED about new products. I love that store. I love that family. I love being part of that family, even though I don't work there. Thank you, for recognizing a thing of beauty when you see it. And thank you for sharing your own beauty. Your workshop was totally "organic!"
