An Artful Journey
Well here they are hard at work! Class on Saturday was so much fun. It was a small class but the girls really got into journaling. I loved it! Three more people expressing themselves through art journaling. How cool is that!
We made a simple little book to get everyone started. It wasn't elaborate but it was still fun. We painted, stenciled and made ribbon flowers for the front cover.
Inside I had a few journal prompts to break the ice and get the girls started. We only got to the first one....but they still seemed to love it.
There are so many directions you can go with journaling. And I encouraged them to try different styles.
I brought lots of samples, books, magazines and such for them to visually see the many options they had.
I also included print outs full of blog lists, books, magazines & journal prompts to keep them moving on their journey.
How fun is it when you discover something new! Thanks for coming along on the ride girls....it was wonderful!
