Worktable Wednesday- Art Journaling by Storybeader.

Worktable Wednesday features something new happening with the BBA members or something of interest we spy online.

Deb, the storybeader, and of The Storybeader's Journal, has been into art journaling for quite some time now.  I've read her blog and often admired her dedication to working in these image journals, creating page after page of art reflective of prompts, skills she's studying, and whatever's going on in her life.  

Recently she went on a trip to Italy, and made it a goal to create journal pages reflective of trip highlights.  I was so fascinated by this concept: what a great way to remember the details of your trip when you get home and for years to come.   Let's take a peek at a few pages:

"We started off on American Airlines but the plane was cancelled and we flew on United instead."

Today's post was written by Nancy of N. Fallon Design Studio.  Established in 2008, the shop houses a whimsical line of knit purses, wallets, and knitwear.  An artist at heart, Nancy also dabbles in watercolors, mixed media sculpture, and poetry.  You can read more about her life and work on her blog One Loopy Knitter.

I'm loving all her pages about her trip to Italy! It's like scrapbooking, but so much more creative!

This is such a great way for Deb to remember her trip to Italy! I admire the fact that she documents her art learning efforts on her blog, where we can all see the progress she is making.
