Michelle Ward’s latest GPP Street Team Crusade is Portion Control - What does she mean by Portion Control?
“What do I mean by Portion Control? I believe that part of something is more interesting than the whole. It creates a sense of mystery, an engagement of the viewer to try to figure out what they are looking at.”
I was a few days behind on my a prompt a day art journal pages that I am doing with Kelly Kilmer. So this evening, I thought I would kill two birds with one stone.
After preping the page with acrylic paints – I used my large alphabet stencil to stencil some letters onto the page. Some are complete, some are light and some are dark.
With collage elements added.
Complete with journaling.

I didn’t post all of my pages from the online classes that I did in January with Kelly Kilmer. But I did do a page a day in the journal that I made, not to mention my soul journal.
The good news is that the classes are continuing. I’ve signed up for February and so far I have completed a page a day. I am loving it. If you want more information you can find it here.
I started my artist journal and did my first page, following Kelly Kilmer’s prompts from her Online Class. I love it. I’m trying something new that I have always wanted to try, but really just didn’t know how.
Misty Mawn is encouraging people to join her on her quest to art journal everyday in January, she’s compiling a list of participants blogs – go check it out and join in the fun of art journaling every day in January.
As part of the Prompt a Day online classes, Kelly put up instructions on using an old hard back book to create our own journal. I had an old book that I picked up from a library discard sale. I removed the cover and the library card, and then I removed the book block. Then I created the signatures (cartridge and sketch book paper). Now just to put it all together. The spine is reinforced with a piece of fabric that I have had for some time from a swap, and the inside covers are covered with paper that I have been waiting for just the right project to use.
There are many people that I would love to take a class with, but living in Australia makes it a little difficult sometimes. And my budget just doesn’t stretch to travelling overseas at this stage – maybe one day!
Kelly Kilmer is one of those artists. Lucky for me she has decided to offer online classes! I’m signed up for A Prompt a Day which starts on the 1st of January 2009 – I can’t wait!
