Art Journaling

I thought I would start to show some of the images of the Art Journaling classes that we have at the store.  We actually have two classes going on every month.

Adventures in Art Journaling, this class was the one we started with.  We work in a Moleskine notebook.  Love this book.  Just the right size and I love that the paper is thin.  We can always add gesso if we need to.

The other class that we have is the A2Z of Me.  Each month we pick a letter of the alphabet randomly, do a background and then add imagery and write about the word we chose to go with that letter.  We are also working in a Moleskine journal but this is a small watercolor book.  We skip pages in the book and then go back and complete them when that letter comes up, this way when we are done, the book will be “alphabetically correct”

This photo is from the very first Adventures in Art Journaling class back in February 2012.

We used Dylusions sprays, stencils, and stamps along with Ranger’s Archival Inks.

This was the morning class


and we had so many sign ups I repeated the class in the afternoon.  This page I finished off with book paper, Faber Castel pitt pens, Ranger’s  black gesso,  rub-ons and stamps.


We have been having so much creative fun in these classes that I have been asked to host a third class, so as soon as I figure out what journal and what theme we are probably going to add it.

  1. Just a thought, if you have ever heard of a “wreck this journal” that would be a wonderful idea to do for a class. To sum it up, it is a book that, on every page has a different prompt ex., “Color this entire page” “scribble widely, violently, with reckless abandon” and so on. I own one and it is extremely fun to complete! I hope I helped! -Amelia

    • Hi Amelia: I HAVE a “Wreck this Journal” somewhere.. . . . A friend gave it to me years ago and I never did anything in it. I am going to dig it out and start. Thanks so much for the suggestion!!
