Blog hop, teaching gig, 2016 will be awesome!


Oh my goodness this is exciting and scary all at the same time! I am thrilled to announce that I will be a guest teacher in The Journey Within: A Year of Handmade Art Journals with book maker, Kiala Givehand and 16 other artists. The class begins January 1st and goes the entire year (I’m feeling a New Year’s resolution idea here). Each month, Kiala will teach you how to make your own handmade art journal, give you prompts, tips and techniques for filling the pages, and bring in guest artists to share their ideas.

To kick off this fantastic course, Kiala has created a December book and asked each guest artist to give her a challenge to complete this month. All these challenges are set up to create an opportunity to “Blog Hop.” You can “hop” from blog to blog as the challenges take place. Play along if you choose. CLICK HERE for the blog hop schedule.

My challenge will appear on December 7th. Check back to see what I’ve suggested.

If you decide to play along, leave a comment with a link to your blog or to the page you completed so I can see your unique interpretation.

Each artist gets credit when someone from their world chooses to take the class so please CLICK HERE to learn more about the class or to register.

If your New Year’s resolution involves having your most creative year yet or you are vowing to learn something new each month, what are you waiting for, click that link and join me.

Until next time!
