This artwork is shared with permission of the artist. Each piece started with one of the techniques explored in my art journaling workshop and was taken in whatever direction the artist wanted to go. Isn't it all marvelous? Their work is amazing! I'm honored to be working with 24 talented artists, seeing how they take an idea and FLY with them, charting their own unique course. 

You see, art journaling is not scrapbooking. It is not taught with templates or page layouts. It's not paint-by-numbers. The point is not to replicate a particular page. Art journaling is a blend of mixed media techniques.

Kind reviews from participants:

"... the workshop offers a fantastic chance to really play, and enjoy the messy process, as well as developing new skills and using different materials." ~ N

"I have loved making pages for each lesson in the workshop, learning something great from each and just plain having fun! I still have more ideas to play with and that's a great thing about having extended access to the workshop. The time frame and the build up of techniques allows me the room to let it all evolve. I highly recommend your workshops for their laid back ease and generous inspiration." ~ C

"I love Tammy’s class because it’s focusing on the creativity process rather than how to create a specific product. There is good instruction on the techniques she features while being very open-ended. It’s been easy to incorporate these ideas into my work without feeling like I’m copying or recreating hers. The techniques are adaptable to a variety of materials and I find myself combining the things I learned in different lessons." ~ K

"You have certainly found your calling in teaching these classes - please keep it up!" ~ K
