Diving into a Novel Approach

Ahh, it feels good to dive in! Today I was able to start prepping the 2 books I had chosen for Tammy Garcia's Novel Approach online course. This course is about art journaling and acrylic paint techniques done in a hardback book, altering it. I love it! Find out more about Novel Approach here. This is a work at your own pace workshop so you are not too late to join in.

Prepping one of my books and weighing it down with a brick! 

I added my Visual Inspiration board to this book and loved seeing it settle into it's new home.

I did one of the beginning exercises with acrylic paints on mini file tab index cards and after I made them, decided to add the cards to the 2nd smaller book I started to prep, the math book. 

So much fun to fool around with paints in a book again! I'm looking forward to exploring more of Tammy's lessons in the next few days :)
