Welcome! I'm excited you're here and eager to share some of my favorite visual journaling techniques. All you need is a Basic Tool Kit plus an open mind for the unfolding of your pages. Anything goes! Start where you are and with you have. :-)
Basic Tool Kit: (available at Michael's or Amazon)
Mixed Media Journal: I prefer spiral-bound Canson mixed media journals. They will lay flat and accomodate the mixed media you'll be adding as well as the thick pages you'll end up with. Get one HERE.
3-5 Magazines (my favorites are Where Women Create, Breathe and National Geographic; mix it up; borrow from friends, check out the thrift store)
Ruler (to lay next to an image or words and easily cut without ripping into image/word)
Glue stick or tape
Colored pencils or markers or crayons
Optional & FUN Supplies:
(available at Michael's or Amazon)
Some acrylic craft paints (red, blue, yellow or whatever strikes your fancy)
A brush or two
Black sharpie marker
White gel pen
Container for waterPaper towels
A plastic table cloth to protect your work surface.
Waxed paper for separating pages that are still wet or covered with chalk.
Stencil & a small piece of sanding paperGesso for backgrounds and to stiffen up pages.
Ephemera — bits and pieces of interesting stuff for layering your pages, ie ticket stubs, junk mail, ribbon, buttons, fibers, fabrics, charms, beads.
Dash me questions via email HERE. And get ready for a creative, playful workshop where you're likely experience deep aha moments around what's important right now and next steps.
