Dina Wakley Challenge - Show us your MEdia

Dina Wakley asked me to join her in her exploration of the ME of mixed MEdia.  I was happy to say yes. Then she asked the nearly impossible. "Show WHY you create."

There are so MANY reasons I create - from self expression, to my love of learning new things, to how just HAPPY it makes me.  But I settled on a reason that has always been a deep part of why I do this - to participate and create community.

This piece represents the gift that is sharing your art.  It is this beautiful two way street of inspiring others and being inspired. You send these little pieces of yourself into the community that you have joined and it expands and deepens it.  At the same time, it expands and deepens you.  It is a nearly magical experience of humanity. 

And I want to be a part of that.

I used Dina Wakley paints (magenta, tangerine, night, sky, turquoise, lime, lapis, blushing, blackberry violet) , Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks, Dina Wakley stencil (mini favorites), Rae Missigman's ArtMarks Stencil collection #1, Posca White pen, Sharpie white china marker

Video Flip-through of my artmarks journal

How tiny is it? The cover is just over 3"x3". The pages vary - some are TINY! 

After many requests, Rae and I are planning a tiny journal class. We both have quick, fun ways to create these awesome pocket sized journals. Look for that this summer!
