  6. Hi Shari,
    I really love your work. I wanted to know if you can give me a tip on how you plan your pages....is it something that you actually plan or you just follow what you feel at the moment?
    I want to start with my art journaling but when I'm in front of the white pages I totally freak out :S
    I will really appreciate some guidance!!!!

    Thank you
    Gabriela Sanders.

  46. Oh, I so love your inky fingers, Shari! I love to get my digits into my work too. Love, love, love the green and blue background and all of the wonderful interest the added text and illustrations from the paper add to the overall effect of the project.

  56. I look forward to Shari's contributions, even though I don't do art journals myself. The inky fingers are a plus, but I learn a lot about composition and color. My mother always told me my choice of green and blue outfits did not go together. I didn't listen to her and wore 'em anyway. It's been my favorite color combo for as long as I remember.
