Thank you so much for your answer Dina! It is fascinating to hear about your process; and a good reminder to not overthink my pages. Your journals are awesome!


Love your journal art. I work in 4 to 6 journals at a time, plus I'm painting large (36"x36") canvases simultaneously. Nothing planned, purely intuitive whether a piece is a masterpiece or disaster, it's the process of creating art that matters to me, not the outcome.

It's all about moving forward while paint or ink is drying. And, I believe a good way to amass a large body of work.

You are not weird, Dina. Many artists work this way.

I am so happy to read you are planning on offering another online class. I will be anxiously awaiting details.


Having taken your classes before, this makes sense to me and has become the way I work, too (at least sort of). I love having tons of backgrounds/half done pages to choose from.
I'm really enjoying your ledger pages - makes me want to got get a ledger myself.


Looking forward to your revamped class. Thanks for sharing your process, I am moving from "tight" art (I mostly think about) to loose art (I actually do) and I learn so much from your work and words.

Thanks for the insight to how you work in your journals. I've started taking the pages out of my coil bound book and work on individual pages...have about 8 waiting for more.

BTW...saw you video on Scraptime...the tag make & take at summer CHA...loved seeing you teach. Can't wait to see your new class...will start saving right now.


Yeah!!! Finally a online class :-D Can't wait. xoxo


Thank you so much for sharing! I have just started out with art journaling this June. I have created pages I love; but I have been frustrated with my favorite mediums sometimes not matching up (like, I love oil pastels but can't write over them with my gel pens). I think it's just a matter of getting more experience under my belt- but I would love to hear your take on combining the correct materials for newbies. Your work is lovely, spontaneous heartfelt and inspiring. Look forward to your classes!
