I am so pleased with my students - wow that sounds so formal! I am so pleased with my friends and there Birdhouse Art Journal Pages. We used acrylic paint, perfect paper adhesive, scrapbooking paper, black markers and a white wash technique. They all turned "I can't do that", in to "Wow, I did that!" Ya wow.... a little encouragement, a few instructions and everyone can be an artist. It may not be what you thought it would look like the first time you try... but keep trying, keep practicing and just get some art on the paper. You will be surprised at what you can create as time progresses and your skill improves.
