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!Read More
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 . . .Read More
I'm taking an Altered Book Art Journaling course with Tammy Garcia called Novel Approach. I've only just started, but highly recommend it. I have also done Tammy's paper prompts and ICAD challenges -so much fun!

I'm happy to say that I continued to be "called" to work/play in my art journal. At the moment, not having a prompt is not inhibiting me.

Wow! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. My son Decklin who turned 33 this year, originally created my website when he was just 14 years old, yes - I said 14! The site did go through a few updates during those 19 years and I even changed domains in 2004 from lennastamp.com to creativelenna.com. Since that time I've been updating the site myself, but could not deal with the old front page platform it was based on any more. The updates were difficult to do and the site content itself was very outdated.
So here we are, with a brand new squarespace website I'm excited about. I think it will help me to stay updated a lot more easily and feel proud of what I see on my site. I hope you enjoy it! I know I will! : 0) lenna
