Brown Bag Journal

Ok..have you guys seen the post Michelle Ward did about suziblu ?? As Michelle says..."She rocks the pages"!

Soo...Suzi is doing an art journal class over on youtube and on her "vlog" . This week we're doing a "self portrait" in our journals.

OK...so I took a photo of myself (for refrence), then kinda drew myself...then "crayoned" (caran d'ache) it into my journal....don't laugh...

I made my journal pages from those brown bags you get at the market (give them a swpe of gesso first) .

So there is NO...zero..(gulp)... EXCUSE for not journeling!!

Your self-portrait is very nice! Crayons are fine. It looks like oil pastels from here.

Ok, this is how to make a name into a link

0. go into Edit Post mode for this entry and make sure you are in Compose mode.

1. Copy the link that you want to use by highlighting the link.
(Hold down the left button of your mouse and a dark blue line should appear. Release the left click button when the blue line is over the entire name or phrase. Do control button and c (simultaneously) for a PC; if you have a MAC, I don't know the command)

Your link is held in the computer's memory, until you are ready to use it.

2. Write down the name you want to use in your post.

I assuming that you want to use:

3. Highlight Susieblue, using
the mouse as you did in Step 1.

4. On your post,
there is a green and white button. (It should be next to a capital T with a color pallette).

Click on this green and white button.

4. A box comes up.
Erase the Http:// with the backspace button.

5. Do a control button v simultaneously. The link should be in the little box.

6. Click OK.

7. You will see that there is an underline mark under the Susieblu name. This means that the link thing was successful.

Hope this helps!
