Renaissance Art Journal


Last weekend I attended an art journal class inspired by the techniques of Jacqueline Sullivan and hosted by Terri Gauthier of Davison, Michigan. I had taken a similar class a few years ago when Jackie taught these modeling paste fundamentals herself, so when Terri offered a class of faux metal painting and book binding, I jumped at the chance to participate. If any one has the opportunity to take a class from Jacqueline, I would definitely encourage you to do so. Her art is amazing! Even though we watched and learned from Terri, no two journals colors were identical. Isn't it fun how that happens and no one's work is the same? I feel like my journal celebrates something mystical and needs to hold my treasured heritage family photos. Thank you, Terri, for hosting such a glamorous event. Your mouth watering homemade breakfast was a pleasure!

I did have fun making this book, especially since I actually finished it pretty quick. Thanks for your kind words about the little embellishments that I added. Yes, we need to make another one!
