Cosmic Smashing

One of my favorite protects is to create Cosmic Smashbooks, and Art Journals! 

When she was in her color of Woman teacher training, my Red Thread SiStar Catt Geller wanted an option suitable for low-income participants. She thought of using simple composition books - and Cosmic Smashbooks were born! I corresponded with Catt, and was granted permission to teach local classes, and love seeing the books that emerge!

This year, Catt is launching her Teach the Teachers training, and there are still a few slots open! Contact her if you're interested! 

Here's a lovely little tutorial on making an art journal with watercolor paper. I like making small themed booklets (a even simpler format is the fold out style, no sewing!)

And here are a few art journal page ideas -  let's art journal  
Looking for inspiration? Here's a challenge with monthly themes: Art journal journey

Do you have a favorite format for art journals?

How fun! I love that you included an option for low income. Its a great idea too. I don't always participate in classes for lack of money. I went over to the other blog. There are so many participants. Can anyone join in or is it a closed group? Is there a cost? Happy PPF! Hugs, Rasz

Lovely work.

Isn't it helpful to have inexpensive options? I love that as well! Ithink anyone can participate in Art Journal Journey, Rasa, similar to PPF.
