This year I have joined Life Book, which is an online art journaling course and community run by Tamara Laporte. If you have any interest in art journaling, I highly recommend it! Tamara has a great energy about her and mixes in self exploration with the art making process.
Here is the first page of my book, from the first warm up lesson in the course.

Are you doing anything new this year? Any online classes you’d like to recommend?
This year I am taking a monthly themed approach to my favorite posts. January is all about art or artists.
To start things off, here is a great site/workshop I found when poking around on other zentangler’s blogs.
Journal 52 is an online art journal workshop being offered by Chelle Stein. In the Journal 52 blog she provides a new prompt every week, as well as examples of her own page that week. Not just her finished page, but her thought process, the techniques she is using, ideas for materials. All around great stuff!
I am joining and plan to use this as a weekly project for me and my daughter, either with a joint journal or with each of us doing our own. I’ll be sure to share with you along the way.
