Since I was in my Paris state-of-mind, I was pleased when I discovered this Belgium artist, who calls herself France Papillion. She posts a weekly art journal inspiration each Monday. Her style is more romantic than mine, but I like how she incorporates one word onto her page. Here's a link to her video archives. I also love that she posts in English and French, so I can practice my French reading skills! (I took French in High School and one semester at the community college.)
I also fell in love with deli paper this month. I took Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's online deli paper class. She also has a free tutorial on stencils. I have found her books and videos at our local library. I really enjoyed learning about carving stamps and would love to own her book: Carve, Stamp and Play...
The Journal Fodder Junkies are offering free online classes through Strathmore in May (definitely want to try our their classes next month)
I have been saving plastic bags from cereal, grains and popped rice cakes and was wondering what I might use them for. Here's a cool tutorial from Gwen Diehn on recycling a chip bag to make a slipcover for a small journal.
