"Art Journaling Exposed" BLOG HOP!

Happy to be spending some time on the Florida Gulf coast, but pausing my palm tree journals to share in this blog hop for Cloth Paper Scissors magazine.

Have you heard about their new emag?!!  It's called "Art Journaling Exposed" and it's journalicious!  I'm thrilled to be a contributor in the premier issue with a little lettering video.  My segment was taped when i was at Interweave's headquarters in Colorado in December filming my Lettering DVD (ooops, just spilled a little be released later this spring).

This first "issue" is stellar. It's chuck full of artful treasure, real art, from real artists who teach and share their talents all over the world.  It's an interactive e-mag that you download onto your computer or iPad.  What impressed me most, was that for the $4.99 download, it is like taking a "live" online class from the best instructors in the mixed media community.  And once you download the issue, it's yours forever, just like a "real" magazine,  That's pretty cool.  There are articles, tips, artwork, videos, samples, and so much more.  To me it was art journaling idea goldmine!

Treat yourself to the issue, and enjoy the instant gratification you'll get when it appears on your computer in minutes.  You'll love it, i mean it!

To purchase the eMag for your desktop computer, visit InterweaveStore.comPC download or MAC download And here is the link to purchase the eMag for the iPad on the iTunes Store
What do you think?

It's really an honor, and am happy to be sharing this debut and blog hop with my artsy friends.  These are the art journaling gurus, with the most creative inspiration and knowlege.  Visit their blog links listed here and have a ball at the hop!

  1. Based on what you've said I'll check it out. Love the (spilled secret), LOL.

  2. Hey Joanne, I am in Argentina after spending 4 incredible days in Patagonia, Chile. I have been journaling, painting and hiking. My access to the internet is spotty and very slow. I am so happy to be in the very first issue of Art Journaling Exposed with you!!!

  3. OOh, I was so excited when I read this and I immediately tried to buy and download but the website isn't working :-( It says this is a web spider, not a customer! I'll try again later...

  4. Thanks Joanne, this looks fab, will definitely be making a purchase. :)

  5. Bought the emag and love it. I was a bit let down that your part was so short. :) Otherwise it's an excellent emag and much cheaper than a paper magazine.

  6. Bought it and I love it! The articles are great and I love the videos. TFS :)


  7. I was JUST checking out this emag last night! How timely. It looks amazing, and the price is sure right.

  8. Joanne -- Help! I signed up for Letter Love 101 and got through the first 8 lessons before I took a break for a couple of weeks. Now I can't get back to it! Can you please help me? (And now you have another amazing looking class, but I must finish this one first!) Kate Lehman
