Purple Art Journal Pages

"This imaginary gift is a journey for your imagination. I send you...
A luxury train ride. On this train are all the inspiring people you've ever wanted to meet or talk to. You glide from car to car, sitting or lying down on velvet lounge chairs, listening and asking questions. There is also a voluminous library on the train, with every book you've ever wanted to read or look at. Kind people bring you delicious tidbits to eat and nourishing liquids to drink. If you take a nap, time stands still until you return so you never miss anything. You receive a large journal filled with photographs, drawings and descriptions of your journey to take with you when you leave. You realize that you can board this train at any time."

The journaling is about how EVERYTHING is distracting me these days.

Dig these recipe index cards I found in my dad's attic! That's ICAD #76.

{above} two purple 11x14" art journal pages, watercolor paper, acrylics, ink, stamps, neocolors, collage, stencils

These are two of the pages I made in preparation for teaching an art journaling class to a large group of high school art teachers last week. I'll do a recap of lessons learned next week!

The found stamps I used include a cork, medicine cup, pen. Used handmade eraser and hardware stamps too. I'm doing Traci's 30 Days of Get Your Art On (again); art journaling LOTS and will post in the weeks ahead.
