inspiration, creativity and how to's

Dreaming from the Journal page



You can sign up for the  Free Webinar with Melanie Testa tomorrow if you click on the link.

“Melanie Testa, author of Dreaming from the Journal Page, is inspired by everything around her, and everything she experiences seems to make its way into her art—big, bold gorgeous images that invariably come to life in her journals and sketchbooks.”

If you can’t make the live webinar you’ll receive the recording along with some other goodies too! I have not seen the book but i adore Melanie’s work so I’m sure this book will be an awesome addition to any art journalers book stash.

Sorry but I’m all over the map today – concerned about a family member who is ill, trying to set up stuff for a meeting today as well as fielding e-mails.  My ADD is getting the better of me and I’d just like to play hooky and draw. Sad smile Life is like that sometimes. 

Hopefully I’ll be back on track tomorrow.  See you then!

      Hi Violette, A quick note about an article published today called “Doodling for Dollars” at the Wall Street Journal. Companies around the country are having their employees doodle their ideas at business meetings on white writable walls. It’s considered another form of communication for generating ideas. — Hope your family member gets well soon. Maybe tomorrow you’ll get a little down time to relax and do some sketching.– Julie

      Thanks :) for sharing the Wall Street Journal link on your Twitter page. It looked like something fun to read for everybody who visits here and has an appreciation for the many ways that art and creativity can be utilized. Stick figures and simple designs can get a lot of information across. And it’s fun!
