Art Journaling Lately


Art Journaling Lately

This morning I received an email from Holly Schrader. Holly teaches middle school art in Stevensville, MD. Holly came across my "I Am" mosaic art journal page while looking for ideas for an art lesson focusing on social emotional issues. 

Holly adapted it to fit her lesson and this was her students first project of the year. Holly also submitted one of her students projects to a virtual student art show that was hosted by the First Lady of Maryland. Each county was allowed 2 entries and out of 24 counties her student's work was selected! You can see the sample Holly made for her students below along with the artwork her student, Chloe, won the award for. I love it when something I make can spark creativity in others. And I REALLY love it when they share their stories and art with me! Thank you Holly! And congratulations to Chloe!!!

I am slowly trying to finish my 100 Day Project. When I took a break from it to do the Thessalonians Words Challenge I had 19 days left. I am now down to 9. I have not been working on it steadily, but I intend to finish it! My project this year has been #100daysoffoundwordscollage. Here are a few of my favorites from days 1-50. All of my pages from the 100 Day Project can be found on my Instagram feed (@foundonbrighton).

I had a few projects in mind for September, but honestly there hasn't been a lot of art time this month. I've taken on a new project at work helping with resources for families in our school district while we are doing remote learning and the development phase of that has taken a lot of time. I have also been getting out of the house more and going to estate sales. I ran into some great ones so make sure you check out my Etsy shop. I'm always adding more items. Especially vintage books, papers and office supplies to use in collage and art journaling. 

I hope you are enjoying the start of fall - my favorite season! And I hop everyone of you is healthy and safe. Thanks for following my creative journey!
