Ongoing Art Journal Class at The Crafty Scrapper

Creative Ladies at work

Sat­ur­day after­noon I had the plea­sure of spend­ing 4 hours with this love­ly group of cre­ative ladies. They inked, paint­ed, sten­ciled and cre­at­ed beau­ti­ful col­lage pieces on their altered art jour­nals. I find it so fun to give every­one the same sup­plies and prod­ucts and in the end see­ing how every­one’s projects turn out so dif­fer­ent­ly.

Just a few of the completed art journals

I’m tru­ly blessed to get to teach art class­es in some of the most incred­i­ble places in the USA and abroad and to some of the most gen­uine down to earth peo­ple. There is not a class that I’ve taught that I haven’t thought of my 4th grade art teacher Mrs. Gibbs. She taught at Amelia Ele­men­tary in Beau­mont, Texas. Mrs. Gibbs gave me the free­dom to just cre­ate what­ev­er I wished and I will love her for­ev­er for that gift. I think this is one rea­son I get so hap­py when peo­ple take a project I’m teach­ing and make it their own because I still remem­ber sit­ting at my desk as a child cre­at­ing and feel­ing how hap­py it made me. My hope for all who take a class from me is to sit, relax, cre­ate and have fun.

Since every­one had so much fun cre­at­ing the out­er cov­ers for an altered art jour­nal I have decid­ed to cre­ate a new altered art jour­nal page each month. Once Car­olyn and I set a date for June I will let every­one know. If you did not take my class and would like a kit to cre­ate your out­er cov­ers I do have a few kits left over which are list­ed in my Etsy Shop.

Each kit is $45.00 and includes flat rate ship­ping.
