Welcome to the official
Art of Wild Abandonment
If you've made it here, you've probably popped by after visiting with the lovely
Valerie Hebert at
(wasn't her birdie just grand! Love her work- and she has a cool name too!)
This bloghop was created to showcase some of the work that we've created
after learning from two absolutely fabulous artistes
There are around 50 artist's that are part of this lovely group
who have been using watercolor, acrylic, pan pastels, gesso, pitt & scarlet lime pens,
fabric, parchment paper... and the list goes on...
to create and express in their journal books in their own style.
I first came across Junelle's blog... yes and amen
a year or so ago,
and I was fascinated, enchanted and just downright hooked
on her every word and every image.
Immediate connection~ girl crush~ kindred spirit~ God connection....
But it was the journal pages that she posted
that would touch the inner most part of me!
I often thought how I'd love to learn to express like that!
And along came this class!
I am forever grateful to Junelle for her teaching...
What a joy it has been creating this book- my art life is forever changed
having learned a new way to express and create
alongside a fabulous community of people.
So, I've decided to complete the cover of my journal book
"a la Junelle"...
I'm loving the nest feeling, stuck on my watercolor poppies,
enjoying making leaves out of the pages I tore out from the book,
and always layering paper and paints to make interesting things happen.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Here are a couple more spreads from the inside of the book.
I do L O V E my watercolor paints!
My previous post highlights one special spread and the story behind it.
Gratitude to all of my bloggy, wild & artsy with abandon friends!!!
When traveling on, be sure to stop by and see what Gina Lee Kim is up to.
Many thanks to Claire at
for her hard work in organizing this bloggy good time!
