The always amazing Michelle Ward has generously shared a complete step-by-step tutorial for her unique Debris Journals in this post on Somerset Place, the blog for Stampington & Company. I've seen these journals in person and they are spectacular.
File this link under shameless self-promotion. Katie LaClair from the blog Back Home Art has posted an interview that she recently did with me that shares my process, inspirations, and experiences as an artist. Plus there are pictures too!
Crystal Neubauer from the blog Other People's Flowers has a series of ongoing features in the last few months that have included Found Object Friday, Studio Spotlight, Redemption Stories and Slow Down Sundays. One of my favorite posts among the many series was a post written by Bridgette Guerzon Mills.
Denise from Grrl & Dog shares her art journaling and writes a post that once and for all will make you believe that "normal" is overrated. Her realness and rawness is apparent in every word and every journal page...and is a breath of fresh air to me!
Veronica Funk shares her thoughts on inspiration and shares some wise words about the beauty of being an artist.
Journal artist Kelly Kilmer has put together the definitive guide to inks, acrylics, and empty markers that is useful whether you journal or not. She names names and also includes a list of tips that are very helpful. Bonus -- she also lists links to her other informative posts on pens and markers.
