The Painted Journal
Learn to bind your own single or mulit-signature journal for intuitive painting, drawing and writing.
There is something so intimate about cradling a book in my hands, especially if it is one that I created from start to finish. I have seen people's eyes light up as they behold their first book they bound themselves.
This is the second part of The Painted Journey that will show you how to fold down, tear and bind your pages from Painting without a Plan into a little visual book that you can then use for further visual storying. It uses simple materials and is an excellent way to upcycle your process paintings, especially the ones that you aren't so fond of, and create a wonderful journal.
You will learn to decorate your cover paper and bind both a single signature booklet and a more advanced multi-signature book. This course can be taken alone or with the entire series using painted paper as pages.
I have been in the arts my entire life and I have used visual journaling for over 15 years as a rich source of healing and guidance. I feel so impressed by its ability to discover areas of new growth and healing where other processes could not seem to go. I have also spent the last decade training and working in the healing arts focusing on creative expression and conscious awakening. I have a MA in Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM, with a specialization in Art Therapy, and a degree in Somatic Polarity from New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts. I also have additional training in trauma therapies including basic EMDR and advanced certification in Brainspotting™. Creative Inquiry weaves this all together into a comprehensive way to access your own inner wisdom.
