A Special Guest is in the Workshop Today!

It's been a long coming, but we're definitely counting our lucky stars today! Dina Wakley has joined us in our Workshop and we couldn't be more happy! With two fantastic 3-hour Art Journaling Workshops scheduled, everyone who'd reserved a space arrived early, ready and anxious to get to work and get their hands messy.

"Art Journal Play Series: Composition Basics"
Starting at an early 9:00am, the morning session kicked off the day with Dina as she shared the basics of art journaling with everyone in the group using her exciting techniques and tips.  At the end of the Workshop everyone had lots of pages in their journals they'll be able to use in all of their future papercrafting and mixed media adventures.  Everyone had a great time, made great journal pages, and left full of inspiration.

"Art Journal Play Series: Random by Design"
After a short break, Dina continued with her second session with another group of budding art journalists.  Eager to go to work, Dina was able to share her favorite methods for achieving expressive layers, as well as how to combine art techniques in creating interesting art.  Armed with paints, stencils, and stamps galore, everyone went to work, all the while having fun and sharing laughs with each other.
