This is another two-page spread that I have done in my Altered Book/Art Journal. I tried to use some of the techniques used in Strathmore's Pam Carriker's Art Journaling class as far as shading and blending. The red page on the right opens up and has more journaling inside. I have really enjoyed using the new techniques-it definitely gives the pieces more depth. The background is a map of Paris that I had.
This is a great example of how to learn - taking an online class. This Strathmore Art Journaling class has been fantastic because it is free. I don't know if I would have had the courage to try it if I had to fork out lots of money to take it. But now that I have gotten my feet wet, I might try one that I have to pay for. But for now there are two more workshops - on that just started yesterday and one that starts May 1. Taking this class sure has opened my eyes to new things that I don't think I could have figured out on my own.
Another of my favorite ways to learn is through magazines like Somerset Studio, Art Journaling, Artful Blogging and more. They are just great to look through for ideas and links and also often have tutorials that help me to learn.
And today I would love to highlight a new blogger that I have recently discovered! Karen over at
