A Four Step Approach to Art Journaling

After having creating your background you have a great base for a focus point: this is what will make your page interesting. Text can then be used to stress what you want to say or to express your sentiments. The finishing touches make your page complete. To be able to create your own page, you don’t need to spend a lot of money or be a great artist: this is what you will learn in this course.

So what’s next?

After giving you some guidance on the materials required, we will start by doing every step three times, but with different approaches. At the end of the four steps you will have created three journal pages in less than 2-3 hours! You can of course, create each page individually, by simply repeating the four creative steps!

I hope, this course will inspire you to create new pages and will give you the confidence to approach a new art piece in your journal with self-confidence.
