My Very First Art Journal Page!

So, I have always loved art journaling but have never tried it. Well, I am currently enrolled in two AMAZING classes by Christy Tomlinson. One is called "She Had Three Hearts Art Journaling" and the second is called "The She Art Workshop." You can see information on both of these classes here. Anyway, these are truly the best online classes I have ever taken! Christy gives such an amazing amount of detail in EVERY video not to mention the first week in one class has 28 videos. WOW! Over the top amazing! Have I said "amazing" yet? Anyway, I decided to play today. I was going to do an altered cover on a notebook that contains notes from each video. So, that's what I did but I liked my page so much, I may do it again in my actual art journal. :) Here is how it turned out:



I am a perfectionist at heart, and it was SO fun to just throw down color and play. Two of my daughters have even joined me this afternoon, and their pages are coming out great too! I am definitely going to do more faith art journaling. I can tell I am going to love this! Thanks for allowing me to share, and enjoy the rest of your Memorial Day! Blessings,

I took Christy's She Art Workshop but don't have the time to do the Art Journal class. I LOVEd it and she is truly amazing. I hope she offers the Art Journaling class again as I want to take it. Your journal page/notebook cover is gorgeous. Isn't it fun to just let loose and play?!

How beautiful! I can just imagine how much fun that must have been to create. I haven't seen a thing yet that you've done that didn't impress me. Hugs from Sharon.

I agree with you~ just learning so many techniques and virtually trying out so many mediums (without having to buy them all) is so worth the money. I have learned so much and feel so free to just be me~ Yeah!

Thank you for posting your challenge of the week btw ~ it really is so good to have God's word in our creative ventures. It goes deep~

And it impacts others~
Can't wait to see what you do next!

I have not done any art journaling yet. Your cover is really fun and colorful, you may have convinced me to give it a try! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!
