My 5th video tutorial is now up on Youtube and can be linked here. I tried to show the many ways to use dustless blending chalks in your visual journals. I have been a little frustrated with the Inkadinkadoo brand chalks, and the lovely little travel size chalks called Chalklettes which have become increasingly hard to find. My friend, Felicia, at Guiry's presented a new chalk product made by Pebbles for me to try out and I am sold! At first I thought they only came in an over-sized kit with tools I really didn't need (like a special eraser and many templates that were just too cutesy) but then I found a smaller, travel size kit that I love. The smaller kit will be carried (in the Denver area) by Kozo and Guiry's, othewise it can be found on a few web sites. I found mine on scrapbook.com, the total with shipping came to approx. $13.00. Have some fun!
Wohoo! I have been loving the new workshop space that Kozo has generously opened to various intructors. My "intro to mixed media journal" classes were both filled and we all seemed to enjoy the light-filled space. Thank you Patricia for creating such a great spot for the art community!
"Travel Journals" wlll be the next class scheduled for this week; I have posted the images from the Travel Journal kit; all pages were completed with just the materials included in the kit. Thanks to the brilliant and generous Carol Waugh (see the favorites link page) I will be tweeking the packaging and creating a consistent product. I will also be posting another video tutorial in the next day or two. It is her gorgeous work seen in the tutorials (hanging on the wall).
