OMG - I just noticed - this is my 300th blog post. WOW! How time flies.
I recently had the chance to meet and take classes with Dina Wakley at The Queens Ink. I've admired Dina's work for a long time, and was so excited to get to know her a little bit. Her classes were wonderful, and really helped me to STOP thinking too much. In fact it's one of her rules... Don't Think... Just DO. It was a little unsettling at first, because I am totally an over-thinker. The classes were fast paced by design - no time to think!
The first class focused on creating several journal pages on watercolor paper, and then we bound them into a journal at the end. Here's the results. Settle in... there are LOTS of pix...
The second class was more journaling, but this time we created one BIG sheet of paper, and then folded it into a book at the end. I haven't added any journaling yet, but will do that over time.
And the last class was my favorite... a journal built from card board pages and bound with canvas strips. I've added journaling to some of the pages, but not all of them (yet).
I loved the random-fast-paced-no-time-to-think part of this class best, and will try to challenge myself to keep doing that. If you ever get a chance to take some classes with Dina - DO IT - you'll love the classes, and her!
