It’s Here, Just In Time For Christmas!

The wait is over, I finally received my advance copy of Somerset’s ‘Art Journaling‘! What a wonderful Christmas present. You will not believe the pages of this magazine. The editor sent out a little artists preview and I thought that was great, but these 144 pages are packed with the journal pages of 17 artists. It reads and feels like a book more than a magazine. I have only done a preliminary look-through and cannot wait for the plane ride tomorrow to see my family. I will have a few uninterrupted hours to read through the articles. I found it very touching that the pages they chose to use had special meaning to me personally. One was done in the hospital waiting room while my middle son was in surgery, one was late at night after waiting for my DH to come home only to find out he had missed the last flight out, a couple were about groups I belong to online, and one is about my journey in the land of the blog. It was only after this thought struck me that I realized that is what keeping a visual journal is all about. Capturing those moments, those feelings, with art as well as with words.
I’ll share a little snippet with you, but you will have to wait until January 1st to see this amazing publication.
