i dont think i have mentioned that i'm taking dawn de vries sokol's doodle 1231 class. i'm still kind of a newbie to art journaling and i thought it would be fun to add some holiday flare and be able to share my pages with others. we made a special journal for the class. i just used a simple composition book. i glued double pages together, then gessoed each one and applied some holiday colored paint.
she gives us a prompt every day along with some doodling ideas and sometimes videos to explain different techniques. i'm always a little shy about sharing stuff like this - it's not my area of "expertise". i look at other journal pages and then at mine and i cringe. but i'm all about letting go of comparisons and i need to practice what i preach!
some of the other participants started posting their pages in the class flickr group and i did too. i hadn't planned on sharing them here..... but here goes! it's out of my comfort zone but i want to say that by doing this i have been able to actually watch my pages improve.
and.... i had no idea how absolutely fun this was going to be. just doing the pages and then flipping through the resulting book. i love it!!!
