So-Artful Challenge: The Artistic Journal

Ahhhhh....art journaling...a subject I'm wonderfully familiar with. As I've said here before, for the past several years I've been privileged to participate in an ongoing Artful Journaling class here in Columbia, Maryland, with artist Carol Zika. We blend creative art techniques with creative writing, and have a blast doing it :). I also do art journaling and travel journaling on my own, outside of class. For this So-Artful challenge, where we were given the image of the blank journal to fill, I superimposed a scan of one of my in-progress journals, then digitally added layers of more images from previous journals.

Screwed up the first post! What I wanted to convey is that your artwork is inspirational to me. I am an art journal newbie and looking at the progress of your work has allowed me to explore and be adventurous with techniques and the unorthodox of art tools! Fun, fun, fun. Thank you, Tina
