Strathmore Online Journaling Class Free
Check out Strathmore Online Journaling classes for free. I already took a free four video class from Pam Carriker and the second series is up now. All free, so take advantage of it. You don't have to use Strathmore paper if you can not find it where you live. Make a home-made journal out of paper you have. Try to make sure your paper is firm, stiff, thick...if not, try to paint on a piece of paper with white acrylic or gesso or some neutral color. Let dry well and use your blow dryer to dry it if you want to get it done quicker. Paint the other side of the paper too and let dry. You will now have a nice stiff piece of paper to work on. A big mistake is to work on thin paper. It rips believe me. Especially if you add water or watered down glue or if you draw and erase, you will have problems. Stick with thick paper.
