drying tea bags to use in my art journals

I need to shake things up around here!

It's time for your questions! About art journaling, drawing mandalas, doodling, stitching paper. Ask about art materials for art journaling, drawing, painting + collage. Queries about finding time for art, using creative prompts, beating perfectionism, gesso, how to get started, storing journal pages, books, photographing art, blogging @ art, flickr, our flickr groups, etc.

Perhaps you just need a nudge in the right direction.

You'll find a lot of good info about getting started in art journaling at Art Journaling 101.

Ask me about doing art with children, parenting kids 11 and under (I claim no knowledge beyond that), being a montessori mom, giving kids time and space to play, organizing art supplies, being a room mom, travel, art on vacation, kids + cameras, and improving photography skills.

Be advised that I am not qualified nor do I wish to respond to inquiries about salsa dancing, the history of the Roman Empire, astrology, religion, sports, facebook, making lasagna, youtube, why pluto is a dwarf planet, juggling or anything requiring coordination.

For photoshop questions, I suggestScott Kelby's Adobe Photoshop CS4. I'm on page 403/453.

The thread closes at 5pm Thursday. I'll respond to as many questions as I can. If you don't have a question, but read Daisy Yellow, let other folks know you are playing along (the comment boxes are lonely).
