My art with Marilyn's art - in her Letter Journal, April 26, 2016. Part of the Letter Journal exchange is working in other artist's journals as they are mailed to you. All the journals in the group are mailed in a round robin fashion, so at the end of the exchange you receive your journal mailed back to you with all of the participants art inside. In late April, I received Marilyn Wadick's Letter Journal all the way from Australia!
Detail of one of the pages I've been working on . . . I've been continuing to work in a couple of Altered books under the guidance of Tammy Garcia and her "Novel Approach" online workshop. I really like how she has presented the course, building skills & inspiring ideas as we go. Plus, I love the fact that it is truly, a work-at-your-own pace class . . .
I am delighted to be participating in Marion Bockelmann's Annual ATC Swap! The theme this year is 'All Things Alice'. When announcing the swap Marion noted that we did not have to stick to the original illustrations or the story . . .
I am following the Muse30 art journal prompts to help give me sparks of inspiration. Read more about the prompts on Daisy Yellow Art. I find them helpful to get me started . . .
Novel Approach is the online workshop I am taking with Tammy Garcia. Thank goodness it is work-at-your-own-pace! I have had a busy past few weeks with my 59th birthday, Steve's 60th birthday, friends visiting from out of town and staying with us . . .
The 5th prompt for Muse30 is MINT - read about it! Tammy, from Daisy Yellow has a great new series of prompts available called Muse30 - because there will be 30 prompts for art journaling by the time the list is finished. I find them very helpful . . .
This was an interesting prompt, Pros & Cons. I was inspired by Tammy's prompt to start by writing an actual list of some positive & negative thoughts. Because there was a vellum page with keys in the middle, it was kind of fun to write something . . .
