Tulips and Poppies

This art journal spread was done yesterday at the Martini Girls Art Journal Wednesday gathering.  Oil pastels applied with a dry baby wipe dipped in odorless turpentine,  Fun experiment and a very sketchy look, but I like it.

Art Journaling

I just love art journaling, and creating art journals from just about anything--watercolor paper, gelli prints, old books, cereal boxes, facial tissue boxes, and junk mail.  I am pretty passionate about it, so much so, that the Martini Girls, Marcia Hochstetter, Debbie Callahan, and I started an "Art Journal Wednesday" club at The Martini Girls Gallery at 6909 W, North Avenue, Wauwatosa, WI.  We meet most Wednesday evenings to doodle, paint, collage, stencil, stamp, and do whatever we want to in our art journals, or just work on other art projects.  Needless to say, we really enjoy getting together.  The sessions are inspiring and motivating.

Happy Arting!!!
