Dream! After all, dreams are what we live for.

A life without dreams would be just a life.

I continue to enjoy the techniques and projects from 21 Secrets Art Journaling Workshop. This past week I added a little pizazz and sparkle to my art. My teacher was Dion Dior, who introduced me to the world of glitter as a medium to add shimmer to my art journal pages. Twinkling H20s (watercolor with mica powder blended into the pigment to give your paintings some panache) and Silks glaze (acrylics with mica in them to make them sparkle) were new found friends! ( I found the Twinks and the Silks in the stamping section of Michael's Craft store.)

You can find lots of fun glitter based items in the kids' craft aisle at your local store. And the dimensional metallic fabric paints can double as "pens" to "write" in your journal. I loved experimenting with all the various metallic and glitter products, especially the Twinks and Silks. The luminescent effects really lent themselves to my desire to dream a little.
