I love getting messy with paints and artsy techniques. But as a normally clean-and-simple scrapbooker, I can have trouble knowing where to start and when “enough is enough.” That’s why I found these two classes from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and Erin Bassett to be just the ticket to get me on the way to getting my artsy self out of the closet and onto the page!

Dirty Fingers, Clean Design:
Messy Techniques with Clean and Simple Results
with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer

Grab your paints and inks and get ready to play!  Even if you’re more of a clean and simple scrapper, there are tons of fun ways to splash around with paint and ink while creating scrapbook pages that will fit your style. Join Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and get prepared to get down and dirty as you learn to incorporate splashy techniques into your scrapbooks, whatever your style.

Art Journaling 101:
A Beginner’s Guide with Erin Bassett

Maybe you’ve heard about the latest paper crafting craze, art journaling, but you’re a tad clueless about where to start. Or maybe you’ve already caught the bug but want some additional techniques and ideas. Well, this is the workshop for you!!  Join Erin Bassett as she shares her inspirational art journals, awesome techniques, and journaling prompts that will fire you up to experiment and pour out your thoughts in your art journal.


PS I thought I’d share some of the projects I’ve created as a result of the information I learned in these two classes! I want to be more diligent about my art journaling, so I used the combination of techniques learned in these two classes to create the base for several small journals I’ll be adding to in the coming months.

    LOVE, love, love your art journal pages. I’ve got some pieces I’ve been working on off and on since taking these classes. Must find a book I don’t care about ruining so I can get one finished! These classes were so inspiring. Loved them.

    Looks like you’ve been having a lot of fun! Backgrounds are so enjoyable and relaxing, you don’t feel like you have to be creating with the end in mind. You just go with the flow and something will work out in the end!

    Art journaling is obviously NOT “The latest paper-crafting craze.” I would trace it back to Leonardo DaVinci’s notebooks and probably even earlier examples. That said, I’m sure the courses are still great the layouts look fantastic.
