I know I have been missing in action. Here is what I have been doing!
Mary Ann Moss's class "Remains of the Day", http://dispatchfromla.typepad.com/. I decided that it must be great on-line class because just about everyone on the art blogging planet was talking about it and I didn't want to be left out any longer . It truly is addictive. She creates wonderful journals using paper scraps, mail security envelopes and emphemera she collects from her everyday life. Then stitches them together with a sewing machine. Using her techniques I created two journals. I am going to use mine as a sketchbook/art journal. I don't keep a written journal but I am going to try to incorporate more journaling with my images. Because of this I have purposely left more blank space but love the combination of elements to construct a page in which to sketch on.
