Art Journal Class: Falling For You

I'm really excited to announce that my follow-along online art journal course, Falling for You, will be starting on September 15. 

From September 15 - December 1, you'll find (almost) daily inspiration, technique tips, and creative prompts that will keep you art journaling through the fall. We'll have weekly giveaways and art challenges, too.  We'll take inspiration from the world around us to create truly personal works of art.

You'll get: 
  • 1-2 PDF worksheets per week that offer a story, art journal images, and techniques for you to try on your pages
  • 6 journaling videos* with tips and inspiration
  • 6 downloadable original collage sheets
  • 6 original digital stamps
  • 1 PDF tutorial loaded with images and all the info you need to make your own hard-back journal.
  • Surprise extras throughout the class
(* The videos will be downloadable for you to keep, but may be available for only a limited time after the course is over. If they are going to be unavailable later on, you'll receive at least one week's notice before they are gone.)

 No special supplies are needed, so feel free to work with what you already have. I will provide lists of the supplies used in each of the pages that I show you through out the course and introduce you to some of my favorite supplies, too. I'll also provide shopping info for supplies you might want to check out! 

Come join us to create a journal for your most memorable Autumn yet!


Special: Buy a spot in the class for yourself and get an additional gift membership for a friend for only $15!

The first day of class is September 15th, 2011. This class will be hosted in a private group at Art Journaling. You'll receive log-in information after you sign up. Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have!

Please note: due to the nature of this product, no refunds will be issued after the start date of the class.


Do you have a gallery of your work I can check out to see if I like your style?
Yes, please check out my flickr photostream to see some of my work. 

Do I have to sign up anywhere to be a part of this course?

Yes, this is a paid course hosted on Art Journaling. You'll need to sign up for a free membership there and then request membership in the Falling For You course. (I'll send an email to you after you pay with more details on this!)

Do I have to love art journals in order to participate in this class?

Nope! Though I hope the love will grow on ya! Although the prompts used in this class will be directed towards those of us making art journal pages, there's no reason at all why you couldn't make a piece of jewelry, a painting, an Artist Trading Card, or something else inspired by the class. That would be great! If you do, please feel free to post images to our flickr group! We'd love to see whatever you create.

What is a digital stamp?

A digital stamp is a black-and-white image (a drawing in this case) that you can print and use as desired. You can resize it up or down to suit your needs. It's basically digital ephemera. You could print it on a transparency, on computer paper and color it, or use it digitally in photoshop. Here's an example from my etsy shop.

Do I need a specific art journal in order to take this class?

Nope! Work with what you've got. If you only have a school notebook and a pencil, you'll be able to participate in this class. If you do want to work in a journal similar to mine, check out this great video series by artist Teesha Moore on making your own "one-page" journal -- the technique I use is a variation of this one.

Are there any specific materials or supplies I have to have to take this class?

Nope! But there will be a whole materials section within the class with some suggestions of what you might want to experiment with in your art journal. A very small selection of the supplies I used this past week are: twinkling h20s, all kinds of Sharpie markers, acrylic craft paints, graph paper, old book pages, gel medium, fabric, clear packing tape, washi tape, rick rack... whew that's a lot! Really: anything goes! Use what you like!

Will this class be available after the eleven weeks are up?
Yes! Once you have paid for this class it will be available to you indefinitely. If for some reason the course needed to change locations, you'd get a link & access for the new location. While you don't need to play along during the class, please note that many of the prompts will be seasonal. (Think: Halloween! etc.) Still, there's no reason you couldn't do this course in February!

What if I don't like a prompt that you posted?

If you don't like a prompt, feel free to skip it! You also always have the option of writing about why you don't like the prompt. That being said, if you don't like a prompt, you can either explore it anyway to challenge yourself or just skip it & make up your own prompt! There are no rules in art journaling, and you aren't going to get kicked out of the class for skipping a prompt. No worries!

  1. Moira, the badge link points to a blog that is a member only blog. Are you wanting it to point there or to this post so that curious people who click on it from our blogs can get to a page with info?


  2. Fixed! Thanks for letting me know! The badge should point to this page on my blog, about the class. The private blog was originally how I was going to host the class, before I started teaching on the Art Journaling ning group.
