Art Journaling

I've discovered art journaling. I am not an artist by any means, but I took an art journaling class at the local college and found it very accessible. We drew, painted, cut and pasted. No one judged or graded my efforts. And I had fun. I've started subscribing to several blogs and checking books out of the library. I came across a fun one called "Personal Geographies" by Jill Berry. It is well written, with instructions even non-artists can understand and has great photos. I haven't had a chance to try all the projects yet. But since I grew up in Michigan I did make a map of my hand. Check out Jill's new blog and get more information about her book.
