To say I'm having fun with my art journaling is an understatement. I've enjoyed the last couple of weeks putting together my pages from the online class, Journal Soup 2 by Kate Crane. I know I've mentioned this in the last several posts, but if you want to learn some new techniques with supplies you probably already own, this is the class for you. Journaling for me has become a way for me to get my thoughts out out on paper but with the added bonus of including art to go with those thoughts. Isn't that what art journaling is all about anyway? Yes it is, and I'm having a wonderful time creating!

Today I made an art journal page for my third lesson in the online class, Journal Soup 2, by Kate Crane.What a wonderful teacher she is! I've learned not to be afraid of big, bold, bright colors, which I have always loved. I've watch so many videos over the years and everyone lightens the colors of their projects with white paint or Gesso. I would find myself screaming, "NO! Don't cover up those beautiful colors!" Needless to say, I'm so happy to come out of my shell and not worry so much about anyone thinking my colors are too bright. That's fine if they do, but I like the bright colors and now I'm comfortable keeping them that way. I have to admit I didn't create the face as whimsical as the lesson encouraged, but I will work in small steps coming out of my comfort zone. Thanks for stopping by!
