Special Journal


This is the special journal that I bought from my good friend, Lori Vliegen at Elvie Studio. This is a wonderful little blank journal that is 6x6 on Strathmore 140 lb. watercolor paper. She has done a wonderful job on this little journal and I want to get more of them. But Lori is in the process of moving into her new house and studio so she only has one available now. I love this one too. 

If you want one you can email her or convo her and she will make you one soon. 

My inspirations in this little journal as well as my present art journey are : Sharon Tomlinson, DJ Pettitt, Julie Prichard, Carol Sloan, Connie Furgason.

I like to give credit where credit is due.  It might take a few seconds for the video to appear---hang on...it's coming...and if you double click it will take you to the YouTube site and it displays better. It is cropped a bit in Blogger---why, I don't know.
