Art Journal: In The Sun Round Up

We're a month in over at Natty Malik's In The Sun art journal course, so I figured I'd share all of the pages I've created for this course to date. I am impressed with myself for keeping up as well as I have! You should definitely check out the In The Sun flickr group to see what all of my classmates have been creating as well. We've got an amazing bunch of artists working together this summer, and I am thrilled to be a part of the fun.

Clicking each image will bring up flickr, where I describe my process and tell you more about the images. I put the images after a break because it's a very image-heavy post.

  1. Beautiful work!!! The doubledog dare one in particular really caught my eye - and made me chuckle. :) I'd love to see how fat your journal is when it's closed!

  2. Really enjoying your pages, and really just your blog in general. I found you via Less' Comfortable Shoes Studio blog, where she posted about your Buy Nothing Summer. I wish I could be as good, lol. But I did recently start an art budget...we'll see how it goes. This is the first pay period that I'm implementing it! lol

  3. your pages really do delight me. i admire your style!
