  • An art journal is a creative diary.

  • Use it to capture emotions, thoughts and ideas.

  • It becomes an "art journal" when you add any kind of illustration or embellishment to the pages.

  • The trick is not be precious - this is FUN!


    WARNING: This could be the start of a whole new obsession!

  • You will learn 5 basic techniques to rid your journal pages of blank and uninspiring 'whiteness':


  • Collage

  • Gesso

  • Wax resist
