Intuitive Art Techniques for Creative Expression in Your Journal

With easy to follow tutorials and color photos, I share the tools that will help you create the “vocabulary” with which you’ll express your unique, creative voice. The Starting Your Art Journal e-book will help you learn to paint, draw, and scribble to express and transform what’s on your mind and in your heart.





I have done a lot of journals in the past … and I have enjoyed making these but yours helps me deal with lots of emotions.  I love that you don’t have to have an idea or plan when you start the page, because sometimes the blank page is intimidating, you put down a background and something comes to mind. I would highly recommend your art journaling process and look forward to seeing more tutorials. Thank you for helping me to cope.
