Free Art Journal Workshop

This artwork belongs to Liz Hicks
My generous, free spirited friend Liz Hicks
is offering her expert talent
Sometimes you have to just jump in and do it!!
Liz says "Almost a year ago I had an idea for an on line class. A class that would encourage my crafting friends to take the easy step towards art journaling. A class where I could share tips, techniques, videos, projects and prompts that would encourage others to try these techniques or ideas out plus take the time to create something just for themselves. "
.......Read All  About it HERE
So, if you have been tossing around the idea
of starting an Art Journal, but didn't know where
to start, NOW IS THE TIME !!

P.S. I will be adding my first attempt to this page soon,
It is in the drying stage as I type...
This is going to be so much fun!!
Thanks Ms Liz

My First Page in this Art Journal Class
The glue is still drying on this literally,
 but I had to post it. I am not a primary color girl,
so I am pushing myself out of that comfort zone...
using baby steps  with the markers.
The finished page {I am sure we will be adding more}
 is much different than I thought
it would be. I started with 2 colors, brown and blue
This is what I ended up with
I chose:
"It Is Just A Day In Your Life"
as my beginning phrase.
I have used this with my children on numerous
occasions. I always tell them, "No matter What
happens today, it is up to 'You' to decide what
kind of a day you are going to have.
It is just one day in your life, so you can choose
to enjoy every moment or not. But, tomorrow
you will get up and you will decide
What kind of a day it will be."

So, Today 'I' choose to have a Happy Day
and I hope you do too.
