The main event was our art journaling class with Dyan Reaveley, where we received this fabulous goody bag, and one of her super dooper pristine art journals. First thing she made us do was to wreck that gorgeous journal, both inside and out, with lots of smudges and splotches. If there's one thing she can't abide, it's women who waste our valuable class time trying to keep everything neat and perfect, so she figures it's best to get that out of the way right off the bat.

None of the pages above are completed projects. The are mostly just samples of techniques we learned for making backgrounds, and still need lots of journaling and doodling to finish them off and make them pop.

Guess you can see why I was a wee bit pooped last night. Now, however, it's definitely time to get down to business, for I need to finish up the projects above, get back to my Wild Summer Art class, which I am way behind in now, and on top of all that, I must get started on my double-page spread in the first round of Circle Journal swapping, since a gorgeous one showed up in our mailbox while I was gone. Could life get any better?
