MCBA & The August Visual Journal Collective Meeting

Hi Courageous Creators!  I hope these photos inspire the journaler/book artist in you, as much as they do for me!
Taken at the Minnesota Center for the Book Arts and the August Visual Journal Collective Meeting, facilitated by Roz Stendahl.

On display at MCBA

















The August Visual Journal Collective Meeting
Roz gives a demo on using gouache.  Her favorite kind is sold at Wet Paint in St. Paul, MN.  Roz also recommends this kind of gouache.



Karen Engelbretson shares pages from her fabulous journal she kept while on vacation.






This is Jean Shannon.  She got some inspiration from Matisse for these journal pages.  

Kathleen Richert shared some of her journal pages, too.



Last, but not least, here is Suzanne Hughes sharing pages from her very inspiring visual journal.

I love this group (The Visual Journal Collective), and feel so honored to be a part of it.  It fills me up each and every month!

Do you attend a monthly meeting that fills you up?  What do you call it?  What do you do there?  (It is good to share these things, as everyone needs people, right?)

Briana, thanks for creating this great post with all these images (I didn't even know you were taking photos when I was painting and it's so fun to see these!). I have been away from the computer and unable to get any images processed. When I get some of them processed I'll be sure to link your blog post.

Thank you so much. And thank you also for being such a great part of this group!

Hope to see you in a week.
