an old art journal for sale...

i've been looking through my journals and trying to make more room and i realized that i am attached to a few of my journals but there are others that even though i love them, i'm not as attached, and i thought that they could go to someone else who may like to have one.
So this one was featured in an issue of Art Jounaling magazine and you may also recognize it from when i posted pics on my blog, and it is for sale here.
There are 28 pages and its all on watercolor paper sewn into and old book...

drawing every day...

i am taking pam garrisons drawing class on creative bug where we draw a little something everyday for the month of march. So here are a few of my pages, i've added color to some but am also finding that  i like the black and white a lot too.
Is anyone else doing this class? it's only 4.95 per month on creative bug a great resource for crafting and art videos, a lot of fun...

more from painting petals class...

the second and third week involved painting with watercolors, i'm adapting my style to the techniques i learned from her, so mine are a bit different from hers, and i am just having so much fun with it and filling up a sketchbook with flowers...

these are pieces of scrapbook paper used to paint a flower on each to be bound with a ring for our flower field guide which i thought was such a nice idea that she had, and then you have a reference for flowers to use in the bouquets.

these are the pages in the flower field guide

i'm having so much fun with this and i think i want to try painting some notecards next....
thanks for stopping by :)

I have been asked recently by a few women who read my blog if i would make them a finished journal and i just thought that sounded so fun so i have made another one and have it for sale if any one else is interested in purchasing a finished journal. i have it in my shop here

 This journal is made out of a variety of decorative cardstock that vary in size a little with pages peeking through. It has 20 pages in it with layers of images and words and some of my favorite quotes and other little decorative bits.
