Shakin' Things up

















Ok, so right off the bat, you may have noticed the super bright colors of my new blog theme! Yeah, I know it's loud, but I am kinda feeling it! So we're just going to roll with it, k?
Pam Carriker! Her work is always inspiring!!
There I was again, taking self portraits in front of the magazine rack!! I swear, the peeps at Barnes and Noble must think I'm crazy.
I've got the magazines arranged just right so you can see the cover, behind me, while I am posing with the book flipped open to my article. Comedy, I tell you!! But, it never gets old. It is just as exciting as it was the first few times.
So the article was one on "Journaling within borders". Since I love to frame my journal pages, it was a good theme for me.
It is alot harder to write, though, when I did not have the specific journal in front of me, or know which pages they chose. But after seeing the final outcome, I think it is a good fit.
I love Stampington publications. Their work is just beautiful. And I love that they make my work look beautiful too! Thanks Somerset!!

Congrats on getting your work in somerset! How exciting! :) As for your new background, I love the color. Oh and I am a little jealous that you get to take pictures at barnes & Noble. They caught me one time and nearly chased me out of the store, lol. Have a good night :)

Hi there!
I just read my new issue of Art Journaling and a back issue of the same from Winter 10 and am so impressed with your work and happy for your success! Your journal pages are bold and heartfelt and you are such an inspiration!
I thought that I had left a message, so please forgive me if you get this twice, but I wanted to thank you for finding me and yes, I was the one with you in Misty Mawn's class! Thank you for your comment - I look forward to following you,
Kristin xo
