CraftSanity Episode 83: Art Journaling with Dawn DeVries Sokol


Grab a box of markers and a clean sheet of paper, and doodle away while you listen to journal artist Dawn DeVries Sokol share the story of how she got hooked on the art form.

1000-pages.jpgSokol, 39, of Tempe, Ariz., is the woman who compiled and contributed to the impressive collection of journal art recently published in the book “1,000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspirations.” This book is filled with inspiring pages by a couple hundred artists that left me itching to start a new art journal myself. (Keep reading to find out how you can enter to win the book.)

Tune in to learn what inspired Sokol to throw herself into art journaling and find out how you can set about the business of filling a Moleskine with your own artwork and words.
