I recently professed my love of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer so you can imagine my delight to see her featured on Christy Tomlinson's blog! Christy Tomlinson is a new love of mine too - so much so that my first Art Journal page is completely, totally and unabashedly lifted off her recent tutorial. I am so new to this type of craft that I didn't even feel guilty copying her design since I need to start somewhere, right? Also very excited about the class she will be teaching - The She Art Workshop! It will be a blast learning all these fabulous techniques.
Basic Grey Basics made up my background -
I like the look of that paint palette - makes me look "artist-y" - in my mind, anyway!
Grow is my word for 2010 - I am trying to grow in creativity (not in size!!) - trying new things - stretching in my perspective - step out of my box! My family had mixed reactions to this page - my older son and husband nodded their heads and said the appropriate things but my younger son LOVED it (he is a very smart boy).
