My first art journal.

Several girls I know have made beautiful art journals.  It seems like they all have their niche's on how they can express themselves.  I didn't know where to start.  Then, I came upon  Christy Thomlinson's "She Art" classes. ( I need to do a whole other post on all of the She Art I made.)  Anyway, she was offering an Art Journal class called the Art of Wild Abandonment taught by Junelle Jacobson.  I fell in love with this class and Junelle's blog Yes and Amen.  I learned to sketch and use all types of mediums including water coloring.  It was such an amazing experience and I loved every minute of my classes!

Here is an entry with acrylics and modeling paste.

This was one of my water color attempts I did on my trip to the cabin.

 This one is with parchment paper.  I love this one the best and it looks so pretty in person.

This was a fun one I did with acrylics and all types of fibers.  It is my little nest.

I loved drawing my sweet girl that gathered radishes.

Maranda watched over my shoulder as I watched blogs and made this one for me in our basement.
I happened to be sick in bed this day when she did this! lol!


  1. How very exciting to see your art journal you have made. Maranda's video is priceless! She is quite the little art diva in the making. I would love to see you post your "SheArt" pages. Blissful Inspirations...

    1. Thanks! I will try to get some pics of my She Art and do a post soon:)
