30 days in your journal Course

..by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer of Balzer Designs.

I would really like to do more journaling, I've done the odd page here and there, but never done a journal properly so I've signed myself up to Julie's online journaling course and I'm now on my second day.  I enjoy her style of teaching, so natural, and I love the way she laughs when she can't find things or spills paint on her arms!

Here was day 1's pages:
...and the strip in the middle is a 'technical problem' I'm encountering with the masking tape I've used.  It's quite a nice texture where the paint has formed but it's meant to be smooth and flat.  It looks smooth when I apply it.  Maybe I need to try a different brand...or live with it.   I've even written about it in my journaling for that day.

I won't describe everything I do because it is a paid for course, but you can see my pictures, day by day.

This was what I added today:

What I'm finding a little odd  whilst doing this course is that I don't know what we are going to be doing next on our page, and because of the time difference between the States and here, I don't find out until the afternoon of each day.   I'm getting keen to get on with the next stage and I have to wait!  This is an unusual way of working for me as I'm used to getting on with an art project once I start, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.  I'm thoroughly enjoying the 'splash paint around' side of it, it's fun!

Thanks for looking and for any comments,

Sounds like a fun course - mmm pondering your masking tape problems, I would change brand if I were you. What about working a day behind so you get your topic in the afternoon and do it the next day. Jaqui x
