About This Class

Creative journaling is all over Instagram & Pinterest, but what I see over and over in the comments, is that it's intimidating for people who don't consider themselves artistic. I want to take this concept, and not just make it approachable for anyone, but also break down some of those fancy-looking Instagrammable spreads.

Here's what you need to know... a lot of the big journalers didn't start out with super-pretty spreads. Beauty comes from practice, and from accepting that mistakes will be made.

In this class you'll learn how to make two weekly spreads, and two monthly cover pages. You won't need any fancy techniques, or expensive supplies.

Learning to get creativity

This was a short but focused class. It was held in an easy going style. Simple elements were introduced ensuring that even those not artistically inclined could be successful. Very nice class.
Simple and motivating for those of us who do not want to commit a lot of time in the journal

Hi! I'm Amanda Howell, and I'm always looking for new things to add to my artist toolbox. :) At the end of 2016, I chose 3 new things to focus on for the next year - doodling, watercolors, and hand lettering. I wanted to give myself ample time to explore, learn, and practice.

It completely changed my world.... I went from tentatively sharing my lettering at the beginning of the year, with apologies for it's shaky quality, to hosting a 30 day LIVE hand lettering challenge in September.<...
