Art Ruin - mixed media journaling





Are you ready to ruin some art? When I have "ruined" my journal or even wood painting is most likely when I like it the best. You might think ruining is easy or hard. And the answer is yes. We will ruin and revive. Taking it too far
So why don't I help you foster the ruining. Foster the "mistakes". Because magic lies in the process, mistakes, ruining, and growing. 
So where do we start in the journal process? We will create our own journals using a simple stitch method. No measuring involved.
I'll give you prompts and ways to begin your journal. I'll show you the tactile process that includes all my secrets and fun tools for scraping and fostering mistakes.

Christmas Bullet Journal


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I'm am so excited about this bullet journal class. I will show you how to create a simple cover for your dot/bullet Traveler's notebook. We'll draw all sorts of Christmas things. There will be videos from me drawing and show you how to use lettering in a creative way.
This class is more about documenting, drawing, and doodling. The mugs below is just an example of the type of drawings we will be doing.
We will be working inside and creating from prompts that I give you. Christmas is a time that should be cherished and to slow down a little. There is nothing more grounding than planning and creating art during this stressful time. Making time for art during busy times of year will not  only ground and allow for mindfulness but it will also enrich your season as you celebrate the holidays. Let's slow down a bit. Let's remember and document all our Christmas plans and lists. I believe by doing so, you'll be more productive (and all the while.....less stressed).



  • Class begins November 25, 2019
  • 11 videos total
  • lettering
  • doodles
  • girl sitting
  • we will be using mainly  tombow dual brush marker and watercolor pencils
  • EARLY Registration: $45 through November 20th
  • LIFETIME ACCESS
  • Guest Artist - John Rush
  • private classroom for sharing your art with other members as well as get feedback from me. Through January 31, 2020. After that time, it will become self paced.
  • If we have 50 or more students there will be a private Facebook group.


FAQ: 
Is this class beginner friendly ?  YES! This class is geared towards all levels of artists. It is a great class if you are looking to widen your library of Christmas imagery. 
How long will I have access to the course? Lifetime access. Videos are downloadable
How many art supplies will I need? You definitely can use what you have on hand and whatever media you prefer. I chose markers and watercolor pencils for the ease of use during the holiday season. This allows for quick access to creating. (no paint palette preparation needed)
Will there be a Facebook group? Yes, if we get 50 or more students there will be a private FB group. I want us to share and cheer each other on. I will have a FB group to gather and share our work!
Can I receive a refund ? Due to password sensitivities, I cannot offer refunds  once you sign up.
