art in my journal

i haven't been able to journal as much as i'd like to lately. i've been busy with my school work, my etsy shop and writing. i am making a little video of some of my art journal pages at a non-profit called writercorps on thursdays...hopefully it will be finished soon.

i found this call for art journal pages for a book to be published by quarry books:
