Reaching Around and From Within - Mini Art Journaling Workshop

Originally Part of Life Book 2016

Ready to bring those that inspire you into your artwork?

Open your eyes, your heart, and your mind. Come and join me for some creative play, as I guide you through my fun, freeing approach to art journaling.

In this mini-class I’ll help you tap into the themes and thoughts that inspire you, and bring them to life in a journal page.

Through a series of simple techniques, I’ll show you how to create layered pages, combining your favorite materials in a way that works.

This course is only available in the Mini Art Journaling Workshop Bundle.

Whether you’re new to art journaling, or you’ve been at it for a while, that sheet of white paper can be a sticking point. In this class you’ll learn how to just jump in, and get going. Before you know it, you’ll have a one of a kind art journal page, and framework you can follow again and again.

What can you expect from this class?

  • We’ll look at a new, easy way to add journaling to your pages (even if you hate your handwriting).
  • We’ll learn how to use your favorite quotes to inspire your art journal pages.
  • We’ll create expressive imagery (even if you “can’t draw”)
  • We’ll play with collage, paint, and doodles to create a really fun and juicy background.
  • We’ll look at ways to use shapes to jumpstart your creativity, for those days when you just feel stuck.
  • We’ll look at different ways to fix your creative “mistakes”.
  • We’ll use up materials found in your recycling bin.
  • Above all, we’ll have creative fun, and finish the day with a pretty page and plenty of inspiration.
