Renovate your art journal into your own personal book of inspiration and sustenance for your soul. Combining beautiful watercolor painting techniques and mixed media, you will learn how to make colorful, intriguing journal pages that will be the perfect backdrop for adding the words that inspire you. We will incorporate our favorite inspiring quotes, poetry, and empowering words of wisdom. We will transform everyday office products into pretty little surprises where we can tuck away secret words that we value and hold dear to our hearts. We will add pockets and other dimensional objects creating a component of mystery and engaging the reader to explore beyond the flat surface of the page. The workshop is meant to inspire and relax you.

Students Should Bring: Watercolor paints, brushes and palette, The colors I suggest are Winsor Newton or Daniel Smith brand of French Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Permanent Rose, Winsor Red, Hansa Yellow Medium or Lemon Yellow and Quinacridone Gold. Winsor Blue, Permanent Magenta, French Vermillion (Sennelier brand) and Hansa Yellow Deep are also always on my palette. Arches 140 lb watercolor paper or your Arches watercolor journal, or a MOLESKINE Watercolor Journal, a drawing pencil and kneaded eraser, permanent ink pen, water container, washcloth or sponge, colored markers (like Sharpie oil-based markers), stencils, wahsi tapes, your favorite rubber stamps, alphabet stamps, and permanent ink pad.
