I thought I was just going to read Featuring when I was asked to write a review of it. That was the plan. Then I read it and was so inspired to play that a written review just wouldn’t do it justice. I had to show you how the magazine sparked my play.
I am not even pretending that my art play here is exactly like the art in the magazine. That wasn’t my goal. My goal was to play and have fun art journaling. Thank you to the staff of Featuring and all the amazing contributors for inspiring my play with both the actual art work and the stories in the articles.
I have only mentioned some of what is the magazine. There is a wonderful article by Tammy Garcia (big fan of her work) about her creative process and how she keeps her creativity sparked. An article about mail art from around the globe. I could go on and on…
This truly is a magazine of art journaling, mixed media and more. You can find out all about Featuring here. And they have a wonderful blog this month that gives you a taste of what is in their magazine.

No, one stencil is NEVER enough!! LOL! LOVE THAT!!! Awesome photo. Totally love the color and the energetic vibe. And the snow too. Love the snow! =D
Outstanding! Thank you for sharing this with us! Very inspired too!
I would never have thought to do something like this!
Is a very awesome page!
Very bright and colourful with a funky neon style!
I love how you felt free enough to take a detour on your way to a review. I didn’t know this publication before and now I look forward to reading, etc, with it. Naturally I had to visit your video, too… great stuff and yay for working with a photo you had set aside… I know I need to let go of the pieces I collect. I buy them to use them, not to stuff them in a drawer!!
Such a terrific idea, would never have thought of this Carolyn, thank you for sharing, Annette x
Wow. I love how this turned out! Thanks so much for sharing. All of your videos are great, but this is definitely one of my faves.
Loads of interesting play here! Informative post with lots of color…very nice!
this is cool… great Carolyn!
Wonderful! Thanks for sharing 🙂
It is so fun to watch you create. You are just soooo free.
What fun! How freeing to just play with no real idea of what will happen – so no worry about “ruining” anything. Featuring is a really high quality magazine and I have a couple of the last copies. It is a much more “artistic” magazine than most in that the paper is such high quality and the artwork is so varied and it isn’t filled with ads. Loved watching your video!
Totally brilliant! Just added this to my CAROLYN DUBE VIDEOS board on Pinterest!
You always make journaling look so fun, interesting and creative. I found a journaling book that has thick enough pages (and it’s spiral) and large enough sheets that I will begin one. Thank you for that. Blessings, Janet PPF
OH MY I really love this idea but it’s way too out there for me to try. give me a year or so, I have to get use to what I am doing now. I love this idea though.
