Recycled Journal Page

Always looking for new inspiration and direction in my art, I am currently taking Pam Carriker's "Recycled Journal Pages" Workshop via the Visual Journal Online Workshop Series by Strathmore Artist Papers.

As an artist and instructor, Pam never disappoints. She always brings a new twist to a medium or technique and can really get the creative juices flowing. In this workshop, she guides the learner in using previously created journal pages as collage fodder for new pages. Pages with their own unique voice.

The journal page pictured above was created using bits and pieces from the pages below. Some pages, you will see, were printed in black & white, not in their original color; another is from my "Shades of Gray" journal (another class taken with Pam) and there is also a scan of a background from a page in progress.

I encourage you to sign up for these wonderful, and free (yes, FREE) online classes. What a great way to while away a snowy afternoon.

Gracious thanks to Pam and Strathmore!
