This year, I'm participating in Dirty Footprints Studio's third annual 21 SECRETS, an online Art Journaling workshop where Art Journaling techniques, methods, and approaches are taught by 21 different artists. In 21 SECRETS, we choose the order in which we take the 21 classes. With so many diverse topics and artists, it's hard to know where to start.
The first class that I've completed is Dale Anne Potter's Personal Acts of Kindness workshop. Based on the idea that we must love ourselves before we can love others (a concept with which I heartily concur), we are designing and writing postcards, documenting what we like/love about ourselves. The idea is that we can pull these cards out on days when the world is a little rough, and recover our spirits. They're housed in a cute little envelope album that we make from scratch.
I really like the way the finished project came out, and I'm looking forward to getting the postcards in the mail.
Materials used include 7 Gypsies tissue; Graphic 45 Old Curiosity Shoppe stamps, My Minds Eye Market Street/Madison Avenue papers and labels, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letters, and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
