Songwriters and musicians provide nourishment for the soul, and also great stuff we can use in our journals.
Four simple (and free) ways to art journal
1. If you don’t know what to write, write out the lyrics to a favorite song in your journal.
2. Or make a photocopy of the printed lyrics from the liner notes.
3. Commandeer a public photocopier and play with the settings, adjusting the size and contrast.
There’s hardly anything more fun you can do for ten cents a copy. (this one is technically almost free)
Ah…liner notes. Something else that will disappear in our age of digital media.
Copy. Alter.Paste. Enjoy forever.
Oh, and while you’re at the copy shop,
4. grab a handful of scraps out of the recycling bin to use as collage ephemera in your journal.
How To Make & Keep A Visual Journal for Discovery, Insight, Healing, and…Pure Fun!
In this workshop, I show you how to create without fear of the blank page, learning how to play and make a happy mess without fear of doing it wrong or not doing it perfectly.
Each session offers process-inspired visual journaling techniques that incorporate mixed media collage, photography, painting, and writing.
Absolutely no experience is necessary. We’ll use simple supplies that you can easily find, stuff you might already have around the house, or buy for kids.
I hope you’ll consider joining me, especially if you don’t think of yourself as “creative” or “artistic” or if, you’ve lost confidence in your creativity lately. Everyone, even experienced artists, needs a way to reboot creative courage.
You’ll be amazed at what you create after just one session! I promise!
