Did you know?
That you don’t always have to color within the lines on a coloring book page?
That you can use your coloring book pages in your art journals?
That you can print them in reduced sizes to fit your page needs?
May the April showers wash away all the worries and pain and difficulties…
I started out planning to do some spring cleaning in the studio, sort of in an attempt to clear my mind. Then I found a pile of journals I had meant to put away and forgotten. And then I started flipping through the pages and saw this one. It made me smile! If I didn’t have art and crafts in my life, I’d be a perpetually frazzled person. ART SAVES SANITY.
I leave for San Francisco in a few weeks to shoot my art journaling classes at Creativebug. But even before shootings begin, there’s always prep work. Creating samples, writing up instructions, making a supply list are just some pieces of that prep work puzzle. These are some of the mixed media pages I’ll be teaching. Okay, now back to work!
So, on the 28th of September, I got a message from Creativebug. I had not actually entered the Next Creativebug Art Instructor contest. They liked my entries throughout September and wondered if I would be interested in entering their contest. How exciting! I went to their website and filled out my contest entry form. On Saturday October 1st, I got an email with the subject line Congratulations! Today, they announced their Top 5 Finalist list on Instagram and I can share my BIG NEWS!!! Congratulations to the other finalists! Each of us now will have to submit a few other things for the finals. Off to work!
