graffiti of my life art journaling class completed!!!!

So, a while ago I signed up and downloaded Dina Wakley's Graffiti of My Life online art journaling class. I was so pleased with the techniques that I learned. Dina did an excellent job of teaching her grungy style. I'm going to show you the majority of my finished pages. There are lots of photos...hope you enjoy!
I wanted you to see most of the pages and how there is a theme throughout the journal. I chose quotes and words that would inspire me when I read them to include in my journal. Instead of binding my journal by sewing, I chose to use my Zutter Bind-It-All. I really wanted the black rings as opposed to stitching. Maybe on the next one I'll try to bind it by hand.

The technique Dina teaches is awesome. I've enjoyed experimenting on other things. I'll show you some of my recent Valentine's Day tags in a day or so using that technique.

Hope you enjoyed the journal. I'm very pleased with the results.

Very nice! that is an interesting technique and it yields some nice results! I'e been meaning to email you-- I found some old wine corks that I thought maybe you could make some use of somewhere along the line in your art. I also have a mess of old buttons- not particularly fancy - but they seem like the kind of thing you could put to good use as well. Let me know if you're interested!

Wow, how neat. I really wish I could be creative like that. But if you visit this post, you'll see why I am not:

Have a wonderful day!
