The Doodlicious Daybook

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

The past few months, I've had the honor to teach my first online art journaling course over at 21 Secrets: An Art Journal Playground. It was hosted by Connie over at Dirty Footprints Studio. She gathered so many amazing art journaling teachers that the response was stupendous . . . I've had over 180 students pass through my class so far!

My workshop was called the Doolicious Daybook. (Pics here are some of my pages and the cover.) Students began by hand painting doodles WAY big on large rolls of paper. Then they deconstructed, cut, collaged, added any other papers wanted, sewed, taped and otherwise artfully assembled the papers into a completely original journal of their own. Then there was adding photos, journaling and whatever they could think of. I loved seeing their work bloom into full living color before my very eyes!

I'm sad that the workshop will be closing at the end of the month, but I wanted to share a couple of girl's work who wrote blog posts of their own. Do go take a looksie and share the love, won't you?

Sharon Pope, of Moxie Blue, shared her work here.

Jeanne McBrayer, of All Things Quilty, shared her work here and here.

Aren't they wonderful ... and doodlicious?!?

Thanks for the great workshop, Tracie. I really enjoyed painting the large doodles with my little granddaughter, and playing with the pages.

Wonderfully inspiring! Art journaling is on my list of ways to express my creative self...just have too many others on that list right now. I hope you offer your workshop again in the future!
