Journal Intervention

My schedule at work has been hectic lately, to say the least.  I've scarcely had time to breathe...let alone do anything creative! I couldn't update my blog, paint, tear, paste, gild or glitter. I needed an intervention...Stat!

I've long admired art journals but never seemed to finish one. I'd get frustrated and quit when the list of steps required hours of prep, or nothing sprang to mind when the blank page glared back at me.  As a firm believer in "Use it or lose it", I felt I was withering away.

Then I discovered Pam Carriker's Journal 365 class. It's a tad expensive at $120, but it's a whole year of ideas, techniques, and I went for it. I'm so happy I did!

The journal page above is from the "Behind The Mask", exercise and was quick, fun, and full of inspiration. Thanks Pam!


  1. this is WONDERFUL!
    I finally have finsihed your journal - I need to get it in the mail to you... when you get a chance please email me with your address. Hope all is well!!!

  2. This is so good. I love it.
    I'm going to check out that class.

    Journalling is the most challenging in the large variety of genres I practice, and I guess that's how it should be...
