We had a ball. We took paints + stencils + spray ink + art journals + coffee and bikkies + 8 gals + a large table and a large splash of creativity = an exceptionally satisfying day. Apart from making new friends, one of the things I about teaching art journaling is seeing the ‘same page’ emerge differently for everyone.
I missed snapping a pic of everyone’s individual pages, but you can see the diversity from these few snaps. My SIL Ruth blogged her art journaling experience here.
Despite the chatter everyone managed to finish (mostly just a little doodling as homework) 2 double page spreads in 3 hours! Well done ladies, you can be proud of going outside your comfort zone and trying new things: we tore the page out of the book instead of cutting it straight, we applied paint with our fingers, and the sentiment behind the pages was more important than the design/layout.
