I received my art journal pages i sent over a year ago to Stampington for possible inclusion in Art Journaling Magazine. They were my very favourite pages and to be without them for over a year was like farming out my children to a distant land . Ha! Funnily enough my favourite pages were not selected for the magazines two page spread.
Here are a few of the pages i had sent in – you may recognize some of them.
This is the Magazine my pages appeared in. It was pretty exciting to be featured in the same magazine as one of my favourite Art Journalers of all time – Teesha Moore!
You may recall that i was visited by a woman from the Netherlands last summer – Karla and her husband Rolf who had been inspired by my work – you can read about the visit here. Karla was inspired by my small papier mache ladder which you can see in the above link. Karla was participating in a year long workshop/creative/coaching program. I believe that the final large project was to create something meaningful in 3-D – this is what Karla came up with! Isn’t it incredibly amazing? She may donate this sculpture to a children’s school or hospital.
It really warms my heart to know that someone living so far away can be so positively affected by my work and then go on to create a unique piece of art that comes from their heart and soul. The internet truly makes us all indelibly connected!
I’m off to teach a Junk Journal Workshop at the Surrey School Districts Pro D day. Should be a fun time!
Have a great weekend!
Love, Violette xo
