Terri Kahrs

So y’all remember that I won a seat in the new 21 Secrets workshop brought to us by the lovely DirtyFootprintsStudio. This is the first journal I have made for the Terri Kahrs class…

9 x 13 envie cardstock pages with flips / flaps / pockets / and all manner of goodness. It’s far from finished (including the outside of the cover).

I found out that for ME:

  • Watercolor crayon is definitely better on gesso’ed cardstock / paper
  • Layers IN all things are good if not better
  • Black ink is my friend along with its cousin White ink
  • Making extra pages of the same color / designs is fun for mix & match flip / flaps / pockets / tags etc. OR you can scan your backgrounds (even for use in other projects)
  • Always recall the JournalArtistia’s saying when the spread is looking not so good – “Work through the uglies”
Terri was kind to share some of her images for this class and yes I took advantage of that and printed some out to use. She also shared templates for her pockets/flips/flaps etc. (LOVE). Here are a few pics of my journal in progress…

Extra pages for additional stuffs & don't forget to use your safety / practice stamp'n papers

You can still join up for the fun of 21 Secrets and please be sure to visit Terri's Blog

Happy Art’ing Y’all
