Next up is my friend Catherine Scanlon. Cat as I call her, has been on a Designteam of a kit club in 2004 right when I started creating Layouts. I was always amazed by Cat’s way of incorporating sewing and all kinds of paint media into her work and in 2010 we finally were able to meet CHA . I have seen her regularly there ever since and I so can’t wait to see her this year too 🙂
Hi everyone and welcome to my Creative Jumpstart! Today I am sharing 3 different Art Journaling Prompts or maybe you would call them processes that I use when I want to “do something in my journal” but don’t know what to do. Each process that I share is really trying to get you to “see” with your mind’s eye, meaning if you quickly glance you might not see the flowers in the first “mess” that I see, and in the second you might not see the hidden journaling or the field of flowers that hides it – and the third the balls of life that we juggle on a daily basis. While I fully expect your journal pages will look different from mine I do hope that you’ll give it a go and start training your artistic muscle and learn to see something that a quick glance doesn’t offer!
Before we get down to business, here’s a little bit about me…..I’m a Mixed Media Artist, Scrapbook Designer, Paper Crafter, Card Maker, Painter, Collage Artist, Art Journaler, Jewelry Maker, Blogger and all around Artist and Crafter living in Maine taking care of my family and working from home as a Full-Time/Free-Lance Designer and On-Line Instructor. I’ve written 2 craft books: Scrapbooking Techniques: Sewing on Paper and Art from the Heart and currently teach on-line classes at My Creative Classroom
Making art is my passion — I love to share and teach others what I do.
