New Monthly Art Journaling Feature with Shari Carroll!

Hi bloggers! Happy FRIDAY to you! I'm really excited to embark on a NEW monthly feature in 2013 with the amazingly talented, Shari Carroll! Art Journaling has been something that has really increased in popularity lately, and we thought it would be so much fun to get monthly inspiration on different ways to get started if you find yourself in an artistic slump! I came across these definitions of art journaling to share, in case you're not familiar with the term;

Art Journaling v. The act of making an ongoing (daily) record of the artist’s experiences, feelings, lessons and expressions.

Art Journal n. A book for keeping a daily record of the artist’s experiences, feelings, lessons and expressions.

Without further ado, let's check out Shari's fantastic project!!




Check out Shari in action for additional helpful tips & tricks in art journaling!



Supplies:



Thanks for reading today! Be sure to tune into our blog next month for more fantastic art journaling inspiration from Shari Carroll!

Blog Candy Alert! Please join our following and comment on this blog for a special exclusive Simon Says Stamp Goodie Parcel! The winner will be announced soon, good luck!

  96. These are essentially short term loans that do give you meet your fiscal difficulties within a desired specific time period.
    Thinking of time limitations these loans are specifically created
    above an obligation no cost platform. As such,
    these are kept fully totally free from credential checksums.
    Matters such as defaults, arrears, bankruptcy, CCJs and even
    IVAs are not thought to be here. Further, there are also no collaterals connected with these loans.
    There is minimal paper perform needed on the aspect of
    borrower. There are also no hidden or further documentation or
    faxing essential here. Applying for these loans is also rather convenient.

    People simply call for filling an via the internet
    type and as soon as this gets authorized money is received within 24
    hours time frame. These loans are generally provided under practical terms and situations.

    The basic simple applicant criteria right here is that they really should be a
    UK resident and of 18 years of age.
