I first discovered art journaling after I stumbled across Daisy Yellow whilst doing a Google search. I found her approach to art refreshing and, being a little bit of a perfectionist, I loved the fact that Tammy encourages the fact that there is no right or wrong way to art journal. I joined her Facebook group and met a bunch of lovely artists who were so enthusiastic about art journaling and arts and crafts in general.
The first friend I made was Boo at Stamp Laugh Play. She was always so eager to help and encouraging and her love of stamping and collage work is so inspiring. She has become a good friend over the months. I have learned a lot from Boo. We have been exchanging lots of Mail Art too!
Jana at Tangled Pen is another friend I have been exchanging some Mail Art with and creates amazing art with her beautiful eye for watercolours and her doodles are just exquisite. She also takes amazing photographs of nature and uses these to create her wonderful doodles. Another artist that again inspires me.
Now Gabriele. My dear Gabriele at Art-A-Tag. I have never seen any art quite like hers and in the short time that I have known her, she has helped me with many aspects of art and is great fun to chat with! We have much in common with our creative outlet and although she teases me for saying it, I do aspire to be quite the artist she is.
And last of all we have Lynn at Lulu's Art Life. Lynn is a newbie to blogging and has been an active member of the few Facebook groups we are all a part of. She is a fellow Aussie and has created some beautiful postcards for a postcard swap Tammy has been promoting over at DY.
So go and check out some amazing artists. I am incredibly inspired by all of them and they are all so different in there creative expressions which is why I think they are all so awesome.
