TRANSITIONS JOURNAL: A Mini Workshop
Even in the midst of these uncertain times, it has been so encouraging to see our art community coming together in so many ways. I highly recommend getting creative so you can keep your mind busy and your heart happy!
I recently shared a video on Instagram where I showed a quick flip through of the latest journal I made out of a vintage book. I received a lot of questions about how I put it together so I decided to share how in a free mini workshop. To add a little more fun to the mix, I show my process for creating some painted pages as well.
I hope you will enjoy the Transitions Journal and be blessed by it. Let’s create a little something together!
