How will you know if you don't try? {workshop expansion}

Journaling is the way that I escape and relax and it helps me feel more balanced. 

When I launched at the beginning of the year, I was curious to see how the artists interacted with the techniques, prompts & ideas -- and then I did something that is kind of ridiculous. I {expanded} upon the stuff that resonated most. Yup. I altered the art journaling workshop. 

Groovy Grunge is my best workshop to date. I say that without hesitation. So if you are contemplating, I do hope you'll join in.


Now there's extra bonus content.
And I don't want you to miss it. 

How will you know if you don't try?

Take a hardback book or your art journal for a spin, transforming it into a no-rules repository for all of those luscious papers you've been collecting since forever. This is not simply about techniques. This is about how you APPROACH your journal. How you start. How you discover and utilize ideas.

My workshops nudge you to go ahead and TRY STUFF via paint + paper. 

Daisy Yellow Groovy Grunge Art Journal Workshop

I bet you've got a stack of mixed-media experiments, magazine clippings, found poetry, abstract meanderings, and painted polka dot patterns? Add the wildness of acrylic paint - the bold saturated color - with grungy edges - and you've got groovy grunge. 

Meet folks who love art journaling + paper as much as you do -- people who "get" your desire to collect paper and make collages and paint just for the fun of painting. Share your pages and chat @ art journaling in the community inside the Daisy Yellow Altered Books FB group.

Words from art journaling afficionados....

Tammy's ability to inspire creative experiments has always been a path for me to carve out time and space for my personal artistic expression. I view the course videos to keep me on-track with my own creative experiments even if I don't actually create the assignment." T

"This fun workshop is reasonably priced for the lessons, encouragement and new-found friendships I've developed with other women all over the world and I highly recommend it to everyone, regardless of how much or how little your experience in this field." B

"I find Tammy Garcia's online workshops to be very organized and so inspiring. Full of the details I need, but with the freedom and permission to be me. Tammy inspires me to try so many things I would not try on my own and she attracts a lot of fun & creative people to her workshops. It is a joy to participate!" L
