Crack open your journal and let's get your hands moving and grooving across the pages. I'm often asked the question, how do you get started? How do you get past creative blocks? How do you keep your work fresh? How do you generate ideas?

If you've asked yourself any of these questions, then this is the workshop for you!

The main goal of this workshop is to engage creative play. Explore new techniques in collage, paint, layering, mark making, journaling and more. We'll combine these techniques to create an original, one of a kind art journal page along with several samplers that can be used as reference material, collage material for your pages or actual pages themselves.

I will be bringing a wide selection of rubber stamps, ink pads, stencils and collage materials. You’re always welcome to bring your own supplies to use but this is a small heads up that I tend to bring everything but the kitchen sink in my classes!

My workshops are always about inspiring creativity, generating ideas and learning how to see. The ideas can be translated into a variety of art forms. Use your art journal "as is" or for a springboard of inspiration for other art forms and living a creative life!

Student should bring:

  • an apron
  • scissors
  • a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers)
  • cork back metal ruler
  • a full roll of paper towels OR old rags
  • permanent black ink pad (only if you have one)
  • a container for your paint water
  • 1 to 2" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes
  • a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer)
  • roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
