Creative Jumpstart Online Class Artwork

I'm taking the online class, Creative Jumpstart, and want to share a journal page I created after watching MaryBeth Shaw's Painterly Stencil Mashup video.  This journal page is somewhat out of my comfort zone, but I think it's important to do that sometimes.  

I don't like collaging magazine snippets because they never seem lay flat no matter what I do! 
I also used pieces of maps, and some gel prints before making lots of layers using stencils and acrylic paints.

Creative Jumpstart includes 27 different artists giving their interpretation of the theme, Mix, Match and Master during the month of January.  Lots of inspiration to be had! I'll share more soon.

Are you already taking this class?  I would love for you to comment which artists have inspired you the most so far.  I love them all, but to name a few favorites: Marsha Valk, MaryBeth Shaw, Andrew Borloz, Dina Wakely,  and Michelle Ward.  Can't wait for videos from Julie Balzer and Natalie Kalbach!

Thank you for visiting!!
