Adding faces to your journaling practice gives you the potential to bring a stronger sense of self to the page. The techniques I’ll share with you are useful for any face, but you could also do them with photos of yourself and that will speak volumes when you use them on your page. All materials included!
Spend an afternoon playing with a multitude of background techniques! Paint, collage, gesso, mod podge, and more. Conquer your fear of how to start a page. You'll leave this workshop with a journal full of new potential. Fun, exciting, and very productive!
Stencils are one of the best tools to play with at Unfold Studio. You can use them with paint, with spray inks, with gesso or Mod Podge, or modeling paste. You can even use them with pastels, pencils and pens! Stencils add dimensions of pattern and design to your pages and they're all about layering .
A dreamboard is part plan and part intuition. It's part meditation and part crafting. It's collecting, trimming, placing, and gluing. And when it's done, it wholly satisfying and inspiring. Creating a dreamboard collage is a way to focus your desires and dreams for the year ahead. It's a gathering of ideas, images, and words. It's a board covered with your most potent and heartfelt intentions.
