Now I have to say; Ingrid was absolutely awesome and her class was a thrill to be a part of. She gave us tons of tips for painting the pages with bright eye-inspiring colors - adding great highlights and shadowing in all the right places. It was hard not to feel as if I were Alice as I went from one page to the next; thinking, dreaming and wondering just how all my pages would eventually turn out. How would I paint them, what images would I use, what fun ideas would I get to journal about once I completed the book.

It was great to get out the acrylics and just start playing with lots of colors and knowing I had at least 10 8X8" pages left me plenty of room to paint freely and not worry about how each page looked at the very beginning. I knew later we would apply the images and then I would get down to shading and highlighting so my book would feel like they were actually falling down the rabbit hole.

We all had our supplies spread out and filling the tables from one end to the other.
I really recommend that you take a look at Ingrid Dijkers website and check out the Journals she has created as well as the rest of her site. You will be amazed at the awe-inspiring art and your creative juices will begin filling your brain with all kinds of wonderful ideas. For me, I will keep working and as I finish a page or two, I'll post to the blog so you can see how the journal is going.
