About This Class

When I first started art journaling, I had no art background. I found some tutorials on YouTube and I was hooked.

I learned all I know by trial and error, YouTube tutorials, and Kelly Rae Robert’s Spirit Wings course. Some people might be intimidated by the label ‘mixed media art’ but all this means is mixing two or more different types of art mediums--like acrylic paints and watercolors, or collage and pens!

I love mixed media because there are no rules and the possibilities are endless!  But getting started and learning what the different products & mediums are can be overwhelming. I created this class to share what I wish I would have known when I was first starting out!

Art journaling is my outlet to express my thoughts, feelings, and ideas when I can’t put them into words, and I want to share this magic with you.

In this class you will create a project--your own art journal spread (make it look like the one pictured or not! It's completely up to you!!)--as you learn the following:

  • Matte medium, modeling paste and gel medium-what they are and what they’re used for

  • How to collage papers to start your background and get past the intimidating blank page

  • How to create rich background colors

  • How to use modeling paste and stencils to create beautiful texture

  • Embossing with stamps

  • My favorite markers to use for art journal spreads

  • How to embrace ‘happy mistakes’ and overcome the fear gremlins

This video is packed with tips and tricks that I’ve learned over the years and is for anyone who is interested in self-expression can enroll in this class, no previous art experience required! I have a list of the products I use in the class page.
