I have an art group on Facebook, if you didn’t know, and we are doing a huge online art event this month with art projects by myself or some of my favorite artists.

To join the group, go to : Art Journaling Artists and Swappers Group on Facebook.

The event is getting so big that everyone is asking for a list of the projects. So I decided the best way to do that would be to do it here on my blog and just update the list here daily as well as on the event page.

Please know that coming here only will not give you the full experience. It will be a minimized list and not intended to replace the event page.
