Journaling for Travel and Life is Fun!

Have you ever been traveling and wanted to save those memories? Do you like to journal your thoughts and feelings? Scrapbook? Just paint or draw for fun?  Whether you capture a moment or make it part of your daily life, journaling is a great way to release those creative juices. I guarantee that trying some of this stuff will really put new excitement into your create voice!!

I have always journaled in my own humble way on all our travels, taking my book and sometimes filling it and other times not.  But it has always been a part of me.  As preparation for this workshop I went to workshops on journaling and read a few books; I have learned tons of new and interesting things.  A whole new world has opened up for me and I am really excited to share it with others.  When you experiment in your journal it doesn't feel "real" and so you have that sense of freedom to try new things.

 My 'oyster page' was one of those experiments.  I did some drawing and a bit of painting and then I decided to try the molding paste, just to see what would happen.  I was really excited with the results and my picture "Romancing the Rose" came out of that.

On April 27 & 28, Audrey Bakewell and myself will be offering a weekend of journaling. On Saturday we will be focused on the journals themselves and then Sunday the focus is Plein Air painting, either for your journal or just to paint.  Pre-registration is required so drop me a line or give me a call. If you can't make this weekend let  me know your interested as I will definitely do more! It is just way too much fun!! (See my website for contact info www.artbywendy.com)
