Getting ready for collage and journaling

Next week begins a new Collage session at The Center and so I'm getting ready to show my class how to make these pretty papers to use in their pieces.  

Layers of acrylic paints and gesso; scraping and rubbing. 

Hoping for some Spring colors to blend.

Thinking grasses and new growth...

And then, of course...

working on my April pages for my "No Excuses Art Journal" group...

going back and forth, some are done 

and some are in the works!

the end of March and the beginning of April

Journaling pages and they posted a little backwards but I won't change it now.
This is one of my writing pages with the acrylic ink background that we did in class.  It's for the month of April.

Another page for the month of April.  I will be adding some wings, but this is my start.

Back to March; here are my tiny watercolors called "Peeps".

And a final page of journaling for the month of March.  That dreaded day...

And the beginning of April journaling with an added zentangle and I seem to be finding a lot of quotes and such for April.

"No Excuse Art Journaling" for March...

Starting off with sharing our ideas for our journals and we're entertained with lots of funny stories. They are all looking so beautiful; I love them all!  At the end of the year, what wonderful and artful memories we will have.

Marge showed us some of her lettering journal and some easy lettering to use in our journals.

And Sandy shared ideas about Zentangles!

Then I showed the girls the background paper, that Gina showed in her class, using acrylic inks and stencils.

A fun day!

"No Excuses Journaling" group for February

I had to miss being at this session, but Lois took over for me and took these wonderful pictures!

Pastel rubbings that you can write on...
