I follow Art Journal Every Day by Julie Fei Fan Balzer. Yesterday, I think, she posted an interview that she had done with Tricia from Altered Schoolmarm. Tricia did a mini tutorial on how she creates a journal page. The link to her blog is http://www.alteredschoolmarm.blogspot.com/ . I would encourage you to swing by and check out her blog. Her journal pages, IMHO, are to die for!
I love floating around and looking at all the blogs belonging to the wonderful artists in our midst. The styles are so varied and diverse - everything from whimsical to dark. So much talent and so generous for these people to share their art with us.
