Scrap­book­ing led to stamp­ing, which led to col­lage, which led to mixed-media and art jour­nal­ing. Dina is a docent at the Phoenix Art Muse­um, where I give school kids tours of the muse­um and get them excit­ed about art. You can find my online class­es and blog at

Dina will be teach­ing you to Fly with Art Jour­nal­ing Class using the new Maya Road Linen Jour­nal. Learn from Dina’s unique style using Maya Mists, sten­cils, masks, stamps and more. Whether you are a begin­ner or not in Art Jour­nal­ing, Dina will show you how to take it to the next lev­el.
