Join me every Wednesday as I take you through the steps of creating an art journaling practice and how to benefit from it with mixed-media techniques and bookbinding to move beyond obstacles such as perfectionism and self-criticism as you find time and space to create. Every week I'll also be introducing you to new art materials.
