This month's Art 'n Soul Journal Club will be meeting from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. this Friday, June 12. Can you imagine 5 hours devoted to art journaling? I can only imagine all of the artistic karma this group will be putting out. Anyone is welcome to attend . . . it's free! If you're not experienced at art journaling but have an interest, this is definitely an afternoon to check into it!

Speaking of art journaling, here is a tutorial from Annette Green, on the Ranger Ink website, who makes an altered sketchbook cover using the Dylusions Ink Sprays.
