I’m going to take today’s count down prompt to not only highlight inspiring art journal pages but 3 of my favorite artist’s art journal pages.
1. Stephanie Ackerman – She is not only a lovely spirit filled woman but a talented artist and someone I am honored to call friend.

2. Tracie Bautista – I’ve been inspired by her style since I became aware of art journaling 8 years ago. She is a local (Northern California) girl. She was my first art journaling teacher. She has played a huge role in my style being what it is today.
3. Donna Downey – An artist I greatly admire for her artistic ability as well as business sense.

I always say “Painty Hands = Happy Heart”
Today is the start of our 5 day countdown to the May 17th Juicy Soul Retreat (which has 3 spots left by the way)
Today the challenge is to show 1 thing you would like to try in your art journal. I’ve been fascinated with gouache resist for some time now. There is a lovely project in Pam Carriker’s latest book “Mixed Media Portraits” and I found this lovely example from Martha Lever’s blog. What do you think? Is this a technique you’d like to try?
It is time for our 5 day countdown for the upcoming Juicy Soul Retreat
Tuesday, May 12 – One thing you want to try in your art journal
Wednesday, May 13 – Two Painty Hands
