"Urgent C – A Shabby Chic Art Journaling"
February 6, 7, and 8, 2018

An art journey where we meander through 
the world of mixed media with artist John Nelson Arbuckle.  
We are exploring a myriad of mixed-media & collage techniques. In just three days we are creating a complete, amazing shabby chic journal using paper, gesso, a variety of paints, ephemera, inks, recyclable materials & more. With John, we are guaranteed to find and express our story in a  community of eager artists. 

We learned new techniques and used recycled & new products.

Making pages and pages to later add to further ...

John guides us with so many skillful demonstrations 
showing the many options & possibilities.


These pages & more will become background
pages in my shabby chic journal.

Before I left, Kitty came to inspect, sit & walk on my pages.

 No harm, no foul. Six more hours tomorrow.
I will post more soon.
