1 for the money, 2 for the show, 3 to GET READY!

I'm so excited to officially announce our weekly visual art journal challenge. I hope we will have lots of people join us for inspiration and sharing! We are starting with a cozy group of 6 and hope you will want to jump in anytime!  Here is the master plan.
1. Get a journal with sturdy pages that you will love to work in.
     I like the wirebound ones that lay flat and can handle 3-D embellishments.
2.  Check here every Monday for the week's theme.
3.  Interpret the theme any way you feel inspired to- the sky's the limit!
4.  Share with the group by posting a comment and linking to your blog  to share a photo.  If you don't have a blog you can e-mail me a scan and I'll post it here.
5. You can share anytime after the theme is announced, but we'll try to shoot for Sunday as sharing day.
6.  Give each other friendly, supportive feedback !
7.  Check in every Monday for the new theme to jump start your muse!

Run out and get a journal and we'll post  the first theme  Monday.  If you have never done art journaling  before, here is a great tutorial from Teesha Moore.  She has fantastic ideas to get over the intimidation of the blank pages.

I love Teesha Moore! I use the Fabriano paper because of HER! Love it. Okay, I'm game. I will try to get the journal done by Sunday but will work first on my first page. This is great! Thanks for inviting me to play Jen!
