Welcome to the Simplest Things Challenge

You’re all signed up! YAY! Look for your prompts and inspiration in your email February 5 – 9th – this challenge is FREE and so much fun! In the next section I will help you gather your simple supplies. Then, I’ve got some invitations to join me for even more help facing the white page.

Gather Supplies for the Challenge:

Round watercolor brush

Watercolor paints, I’m using Daniel Smith


Drawing pen, I like Micron or a fountain pen, like Lamy Joy

Watercolor Journal:

I’m using an accordion journal that I made just for the challenge. You can purchase a watercolor journal, or you can make your own too! Find out more here about making accordion journals, coptic bound journals, and my bi-fold simple stitch booklet. You’ll see that with my instructions, it’s so much simpler than you thought!

If you prefer to purchase a journal, I like Handbook Watercolor Journal

Let’s Face the White Page Together!

Sometimes it can be hard to get started. We have so many things on our plate, it’s helpful to get a little extra help. That’s why I made a video and PDF-based class to help you fill your journal with simple, beautiful things.

Here’s a Peek at Your Simplest Thing Journal Lessons:

I will lead you step by step in video and PDF instructions to create beautiful pages in your journal.

You’ll see how my creative prep system will take the fear out of facing the blank page.

The Simplest Thing Journal is separate from the challenge. It’s a completely guided journey, where we will work together as you watch me work step-by-step on video, and use the accompanying worksheets in the PDF. It will help you do simple things in your journal before the challenge, and continue making them after.
