Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

Happy 4th of July to my American friends. I hope you are having fun celebrating your country’s independence!

Here’s another shot of the magic cottage – i never seem to get tired of taking photos of it at different times of the year!  I love the Shasta daisies which just began to bloom a few days ago so i ducked down to take this shot.

You’ve probably seen this photo taken last winter during a snowy day (it’s a selfie).  I thought the cottage looked pretty especially with the dragonfly all laden with snow!

A Testimonial!

It’s been five years since my book Journal Bliss has been out and I’m so thrilled that folks are still using it to learn more about art journaling for themselves or to inspire teens.  I love this testimonial from Kathy Clark (no relations Smile):

I love Violette’s whimsical and creative style, perfect to teach art journaling to young girls. I bought this book in 2010, when I was just starting to make art journals. Since then I’ve collected dozens of other books and journals, and I also have amassed a large supply of art supplies. I find Violette’s book very helpful in teaching art journaling to young teenage girls, and the accompanying DVD is a gem!
With a trip to the art supply store becoming more and more expensive, I find her supply list easy on any budget. Look around at what you have already and get started journaling.

Thanks so much Kathy! Just to let you know the DVD that Kathy mentions is the Teens Dream Journal DVD (it doesn’t come with the book – Kathy bought it separately from me and had forgotten.) I still have a few copies of the Teens Dream journal if you are interested in buying one.

Well I’m off to tie dye some t-shirts with my little grandson – should be fun! I have been wanting to do this for some time now!

Enjoy the weekend!

Love, Violette xo
