Come and explore art journaling as tool for a deeper understanding of ourselves. We will unearth and explore the links and connections of our past and present. Writing prompts will reveal and challenge some of our long-held beliefs. Using our personal images we will uncover the secrets of our self. Layering writing, collage, paint, mark making, we will develop deeply personal pages which express your own intimate style. We will explore image transfers for layering. Join me in the creation and excavation of found papers to make your own handmade papers to layer in our journals. Learn techniques to challenge and build your skills in our visual language. Be willing to be vulnerable and express yourself truthfully and openly, in your journal. It is all about you! Wont you join me in lively marking making, collaging and painting to celebrate the joy of expressing ourselves through our pages?
