I recently signed up for Roben-Marie Smith's Urban Journal class. I have enjoyed every second of it! Roben-Marie provided us an affordable and fun way to learn to make our own art journals from old books. I bought my book for $1.00 at Goodwill, the cover is made from upcycled cardboard and the pages are watercolor paper.
If you have the time and interest to make your own art journal please stop by Roben-Marie's blog and sign up! It's only $25!!! How many online classes are that affordable?
Seriously, GO sign up! It's well worth your time.
Oh and by the way, I've already started my first ever art journal page! (see above)
