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!

Meet Your Instructor
Hey! I’m Roben-Marie and I provide ideas, inspiration and quality instruction for hobbyists and art entrepreneurs. I teach artists from beginners to those making a living from their art through my blog and my popular online workshops.
Both in and out of the studio, my passion is helping my fellow creatives step into their full potential by creating confident, expressive art and sharing that art with more people through the power of the Internet. I’m a huge tech nerd and I love making technology easy and fun for overwhelmed artists! My flagship program, Maker’s Tech U, guides tech-challenged artists through every step of building their own website and powerfully effective online art presence.
As a woman of faith I believe that I’m called to serve and support others, so I strive to be accessible to artists who need my help. Seeing other creators embrace their unique voices, build their online art dreams and gain confidence in their new skills brings me great joy.
I’ve been a working artist since 2004, am self-taught and believe that anyone can cultivate their creative spark. I’ve taught mixed media art workshops and retreats across the U.S. and my work has been featured in countless books and industry magazines.
In my spare time I love to read, bake and travel. I live in Florida with my husband of 33 years and together we work with the youth in our church. I also have a heart for mission work, having served in Panama, El Salvador, Romania and Honduras.
