In late September 2017, I signed up for an online class with Rae Missigman and Sandi Keene . . . the Pocket Journal workshop. I so enjoyed following their lessons and creating a tiny journal from scraps of paper & fabric. This journal can be used for participating in Rae's ART MARKS challenges - read Rae’s Art Marks story HERE.

At first, I procrastinated about getting started. I wondered what art marks were? I looked at a number of pocket journals trying to figure it out! Finally, I took a deep breath and dove in. I simply started playing in my journal! That was the right thing to do. It quickly became apparent that ANY art marks would do! They did not have to be good or perfect marks, just my own marks at my own pace. A little over a year later, I have completed filling up this small journal. See a video presentation of the finished journal at the bottom of the page.

A short video I made of this journal - BEFORE art marks were added.

 Below is the first half of my pocket journal, complete with art marks, before/after.
