In my Art Journaling Club yesterday, while they explored in their journals, I played with 3-D-ness. This beautiful butterfly (above) was my place card at a wedding a couple of years ago (Joe & Nicole Martorano Mitacek — who just had a baby!). I loved it then, love it still, and didn’t want to toss it when I took it off my wall of inspiration as I move studios. There are so many things in my life like this, little bits and pieces. What to do with them? Stick them in my Wayfinding Journal and I remember my friends, their big day, and I get to hold their beauty.
This page I did in our first class. I was showing them ripping, glueing, stamping, simply mixing up elements. I’ll write on it later. That’s something they struggle with — writing their feelings. Are they afraid someone will see?
