Have you seen those beautiful 'creative' journals on Pinterest and Instagram and thought, "I can make that!" but weren't sure what you need or how to get started? Maybe you wondered about binding or how to add pages?

Maybe you already make journals and would love to swap ideas, explore different size or type journals, or ask fellow journal makers about their techniques.

Every maker's style (and reasons for making) are so different - leading to completely unique outcomes. What's your style and/or reason for making?

Styles and reasons often change over time, too. Are you experiencing changes in yours, or still looking for your own unique creative voice? (It took me a few frustrating years before I found mine.)

Join me as I share my favorite tips, tools, techniques, and materials for making 'life story' journals from scratch in this interactive workshop or self-aced mini course designed for new(er) journal makers or those looking to expand their journal making experiences.

We'll talk about the what, why, and how of journal making as we explore, experiment, and discover together.

What you can expect:

  • easy-to-follow instructions
  • supply, material, and tool suggestions
  • lifetime access as long as the course exists
  • a creative community and interactive sessions when choosing the workshop format

Workshop Topics:

  • Types of journals
  • History of journal making
  • Storytelling through "words + colors"
  • Exploring mark-making and symbolism & using it in your art
  • Basic binding techniques
  • Exploring collage 'bits' to tell your stories
  • "Everyday" painting tools and how to use your supplies

Make your own life story journal!

Hi, I’m Robin!

... a Navy veteran and 27-year educator who stumbled into mixed-media art in 2015, creative journaling in 2019, and never looked back.

I believe finding our truest selves can be both fun & "messy" (literally & figuratively!). I also believe being inspired, informed, and empowered is the {only} way to be.

As I shift from public Education to teaching online through my veteran-owned business, you'll find courses designed to inspire, inform and empower - infused with the creative process every step of the way.
