Welcome to the Art of Wild Abandonment Blog Hop!

If you're doing the entire hop you just came from Carin Cullen http://createdwithlove.typepad.com/lifeasweknowit
I want to start by saying how much I love learning from these two amazing women
- Junelle Jacobson and Christy Tomlinson -
both are so so sweet and uber talented!!
Go check out their websites at the links above -
This is one of the first projects I completed after enrolling in the 
Wild Art class - LOVE IT. I actually used it in my art journal - so fun!
There are a couple of things that I LOVE [LOVE-LOVE] about this class - one, that Junelle shares so freely her art journaling style 
[she makes it looks so easy - and gives you the confidence to just go for it!]
And two, that I learned [hands on, with a TON of video!] how to use my water color crayons
 Yay!
I've tried over and over to save this in the right direction - apologies --
And I'm hooked.

My crayons and sketch book go most everywhere with me now and 
I can get my art on in little moments of time no matter where I might be!
Again, apologies - photos were taken with my phone and sometime the droid doesn't cooperate...
I usually play in my sketch book and then move it over to my art journal before writing - 

Thanks Junelle and Christy!!
and thanks to you for visiting! I'll randomly draw from the comments and 
send out a little giftie Monday morning [US residents, please.]

A great big thanks goes out to Claire Smillie for pulling this all together!!
