‘Use Your Words’ Art Journal Workshop

It’s all going so well. You’ve created a beautiful page, everything looks great – all you have to add is some journaling. And then that little voice pipes up…

“You haven’t got anything interesting to say. You have horrible handwriting, you’ll just mess it all up and besides, you can’t spell that well. You’ll never be as good as {insert idol here}, you’ll do it all wrong.”

What?! Art journals are supposed to be fun, creatively free places to spill out and do whatever you like without fear of making mistakes. All you need to get writing in your journal are some techniques to help you put that little voice back in its box and some journaling onto your page.

This course will help you do that; over 5 weeks you’ll learn 10 different techniques to put writing of all sorts onto your page with interesting ways to write about your day, your dreams, healing themes, your family & friends and much more. Prompts will be provided for those who like a gentle push to get them started.


Although this workshop will focus more on journaling than art, each week we’ll look at a practical way to incorporate writing onto your page and make it part of the creative process, rather than just slapping it on as an afterthought because you feel you ‘ought to’.

For more detailed information about the course, please download the course outline and material list HERE.

The course will run as part of the ‘Willowing & Friends‘ and your workshop leader will be Rhomany, a seasoned scrapbooker and art journaller.

Each week you will be provided with at least one video (approx 1 hour in length) and at least one pdf file to download. You get to keep these downloads for yourself to watch/read anytime.

Forums, galleries and chat with other students and the workshop leader are provided throughout the course, to help you get the most out of the techniques and encourage everyone to share their ideas.

Course Schedule


* computer techniques will be aimed at both pc and mac users at beginner level, using free, readily available programs. If you prefer not to use a computer you will still be able to incorporate manual techniques to complete the tasks.
