Course Description

Over the course of 7 weeks you will create and finish your own rainbow journal.

We will start by creating a simple journal and preparing our pages. We will then add imagery and text using a variety of fun techniques including Gelli printing, stamping & painting (click here for the supply list). Each page will focus on a rainbow colour and one main technique. Finally we will decorate the cover and make it look like a finished journal.

One lesson is completed each week. The lesson is presented as a full-length video with instructional voice over. In addition you will get a short ‘summary’ video with footage sped up through the process. A detailed PDF guide is also provided with each lesson with explanatory photos & text.

Beginner friendly: the videos provide in-depth step-by-step guidance in ‘real time’. Templates are provided for faces, figures & other drawn elements.

Intermediate/advanced friendly: summary videos will be available for those who don’t need in-depth instruction. The page ideas and techniques will provide a great springboard for adding your own style and imagination.

I encourage you to work at your own comfort and skill level. Mainly you will need a willingness to explore, play & let go of the outcome.

You do not need all supplies! I'm a big fan of working with what you have. I provide plenty of suggestions for alternatives and you can always ask before or during the course whether it's worth spending money on something or not. Let's face it though, personally I'm always looking for a good excuse to go art supply shopping!
