New Possibilities

Incorporating the practice of art journaling into my life as an artist has allowed me grow in new and unexpected ways!

  • What if you found renewed inspiration and freedom in the intimacy of your journal?

  • What if you deepened your voice to create art that is completely unique to you?

  • What if you took the leap from page to canvas?

  • If you are an artist who wants to explore the magic of working in a journal and create a practice that allows you to make more art, more often, and most importantly, art that is more YOU...

  • If you are an art-journal lover with a burning desire to take your art to the next step, while keeping the freedom and joy you find in your journal...

  • If you love both art journaling and painting, and would like to find your own flow between the two practices...

My heart and soul have been touched in a way I wasn’t expecting. The course is impacting me far more deeply than just art technique. I can’t quite explain it. The timing for my life right now is unbelievably perfect. Thank you for putting so much of you into it.

I loved the class and am still experimenting in my journal and proud of the results. This course has re-opened my interest and developed my skills in mixed media.

The class is organized in 3 parts and is completely self-paced: there is no time-frame to complete any of the lessons and it's all about tuning in to your own rhythm. You have lifetime access.

If you are new to art journaling, my advice is to really take the time to build your practice and create several pages in your journal, before diving into Part 3.

Part 1 - Creative starting points

Invite your muse to play! This part of the class is a well of inspiration with lots of tutorials to give you a solid foundation for art journaling or refresh your existing practice. Let's get playful and messy!

Part 2 - The magic of the page

This second part of the class is all about creating in our journal. We will honor the magic of the creative process and explore intuition and intention through the making of two art journal spreads.

Make your own Art journal!

I'm delighted to share this free tutorial from the class! In this video I'm showing you the simple technique I use to make an art journal from a pad of watercolor paper. It will allow you to create a nice, sturdy journal that takes wet media really well and opens flat from the first page to the last! You will also find a ready-made option in the supplies list.
