I am fascinated by art journaling and can spend many happy hours surfing the internet looking at pages and journals or reading all those magazines. I have taken several online classes from some of my favorite art journalers - Teesha Moore and Jane Davenport, Kelly Kilmer, Mary Ann Moss.
I did 21 Secrets last year and may do that again - I'd also love to give Lifebook a try. So many classes! But money doesn't grow on trees and when I discovered that, lo and behold, there was a local art journaling group/class right here in my small town, (who woulda thunk it??!!) I decided that would be the best place to spend my dollars. Take a class, support a local business and meet real people in my area that love artsy stuff as much as I do. Win-win!
Last week was my first class and we are making altered books as art journals. I have NEVER done this before but so far I am liking it. I have been tearing out pages and gluing pages together getting the book ready. Here is the first spread.
So far, so good!
Have you ever worked in an altered book?
