|My travel journal, paints, and ephemera.|
Back to Iowa this week to see my family, I had the luck not only to join the class, but also share with them what I do. Feeling all kinds of inadequate and insecure about my crazy miss-mash of visual journaling (there are FOUR art teachers in that class!), I pulled out my journals, pens, paints, stencils, and ephemera and did a demonstration. Then I showed the beginning steps of making travel journals.
In a flash, they were off and running!
|Karel Cline's first travel journal.|
These are some of the classes pages in progress!
|Quick sketchbook drawing will be a full page.|
|Piecing together pretty paper and vintage sheet music.|
|This pretty painting on left counters the found images on the right.|
|What a fun carrying case!|
|Sun stamp, paint pens, and photos, oh my!|
|Gesso painted on the white page, pressed with the blue -- gorgeous!|
|Dr. Martin's water color ink in writing.|
|Glueing down images and words.|
|Paint and confetti sprinkles.|
|Vintage lace from an estate sale!|
I was thrilled to be there, honored to be taken seriously, and giddy with their openness and willingness to embrace something so different. It was magic!
