CJS - Inspired by Dina Wakley

Here is my journal page inspired by Dina Wakley's Creative Jump Start video Hold-On!  Very cool use of collage and acrylic paints.  It's hard to rip your piece into two!

Faux Stone Journal - More Creative Jumpstart Fun!

I had so much fun making this faux stone journal!  It was Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's submission for the 2017 Creative Jumpstart program.  Here are some process shots along with the final journal!

This is a close up of one spot on the journal - love the texture and color!

Now to add some words!!

Creative Jump Start Fun

For the past few years I have participated in Creative Jump Start.  You are able to watch short videos from between 25-30 different artists.  It's helped me try new supplies, techniques, and simply make things during the month of January.  You have access all year, but I'm trying to spend at least 30 minutes a day making something in 2017.

Today my 10 year old daughter and I worked on pieces inspired by Jodi Ohl on whimsical creatures.  It was a lot of fun!

 Here is a shot of my daughter working because she won't let me take a picture of her with her art.  I'm grateful for all the CJS artists who share their ideas with us!  If you are interested in learning more you can visit the website here .
