More art

Someone mentioned that we're having so much fun on these Yahoo groups, learning new techniques, we may be suffering from AADS Artistic Attention Deficit Syndrome. So much to learn, so little time.
I've just completed two online classes with the marvelous Sarah Whitmire, her Soul Journal, at and a journal altering class on

Here's my journal cover and the back. It's in progress and it's so glaring so far, it probably needs to be shot and put out of its misery. But it's practice, right. I'd never done anything like this before. So I'll keep trying....

I've also been doing Zentangles before I go to sleep at night:

And I've started an online class with Julie Prichard. It's video based, and it's all about paint techniques. Each session is a full painting from start to finish. I have not had a chance to start on that, I've only watched the videos so far. It's a really exciting process, and that's what I'll be working on today. Stay tuned...


  1. Hey I'm one of the yahoos (lol) I just finished the joggles download (SW) am a constant at KKs - that took so long I forgot what I was going to say. Oh yeah, how did you do your circles/spot stencil? Also did your paint seep back behind the stencils? is there a trick to prevent that?

    I love the way your cover turned out - the stencils are so crisp! Keep going!

  2. Oooh... I like the texture on these ones at the top! That's real nice!! You're doing a great job with them!!

    THe other little drawings on the bottom are fun to look at! I like that the paper isn't square or rectangle. That's fun!!

    Great talent you have here!


  3. Wow this is gorgeous, I have done the class as well and it is amazing how different everyone's covers turned out with the same instructios. Janet B

  4. I have a roundish little pad like yours and didn't know what to do with it. I will emulate your idea. Thanks.

  5. I have done both the journal making and the layering workshops with Julie...I loved them both!!
