Connie at Dirty Footprints Studio wanted "to expand the 30 JOURNALS 30 DAYS community and share your own unique Art Journal LOVE journey all you need to do is post your interview on your own blog--and then on Saturday, July 31st go to Dirty Footprints Studio and link your post there on a Mr. Linky."
She went on to say "The cool thing too is that everyone that participates will be permanently linked on the 30 JOURNALS 30 DAYS project page. You will become a permanent part of this project--and an important part of the inspiring Art Journaling community."
Connie asked the following questions:
How long have you been Art Journaling? A very short time really. I have been looking at other people's for quite a while. My first journal was in March of this year. I'm very happy with the results and have recently started another one Royal Decree (because that is the name on the cover of the store bought note pad)
What kind words of encouragement would you say to an Art Journal newbie? Just jump right in there. Don't start with an empty / blank journal my tip is to pick a page at random or whichever one you like - write on that page the following "this is not a blank journal it is meant for me to art and for that reason I release myself to do so." OR just tear a bit of paper out of it and it is no longer "perfect" and thereof it's okay to mess up. Not that there are mistakes in art, just new opportunity to do something different.
• Short Bio. I have been doing art my whole life. I live and create in Texas and share art and poetry with those who do and those who don't. Married, 7 children between us, 8 grandchildren and one on the way.
