Creative Journaling 101

How can anyone not love learning?
I've been having so much fun drawing in my recycled journal and just loving the look of the line drawings but felt the work was missing something.
Needing a little inspiration...
I decided to check out the latest periodicals at Barnes & Nobles. The answer to my question was right in front of me. The latest issue of Journaling by Somerset Studio. To make things even better I noticed an article written by Karen Cole, of Artsortments, yeah Karen!
Needless to say I purchased the magazine, read every article and decided it was time to take an on-line course on both Book Making and Creative Journaling.
I just can't help myself. I love to learn.


  1. I hope you enjoy your journey into life long learning. Making books by hand is a fascinating and rewarding venture. The journal is looking good!

  2. Learning is fun! I love your drawings. Are you an Art Teacher.

  3. Yes I am an Art Teacher. In fact school starts tomorrow for me.

  4. Teacher is another word for lifetime learner! Its a trait all Nazareth College education grads have in common.

  5. You are too kind. Thank you.

    I love your sketches!! I got a closer peek and love those squiggly lines.

  6. Delightful blog. Best I've found in quitye a while. I shall be back.

  7. Your sketches are great! I'm looking forward to seeing more.

  8. These are wonderful journal pages... so vibrant... and I love your ink sketches over them... have a wonderful first week of school. Mine was great... but second graders are so different than middle school art students... happy Saturday... Roxanne

  9. I love your pages...wait, what did you say to me...that you JUST starting journaling...

    I NEED to grab that issue, our Borders does not carry...


  10. Beautiful journal pages! Which online bookmaking and journaling classes are you taking?

  11. Found your blog through Alisa Burke's blog. Love it! Such a burst of inspiration for me so early in the morning! Loved what you did with the skulls too! Thanks for sharing!
