Exactly what is Journaling Krazy Island Style?

This year in Journaling Krazy Island Style, I will be your instructor for every lesson. I will show you start-to-finish how I create my journal pages. You can then create your own interpretation of the page or copy it exactly. Especially if you are newer to art journaling, or art making in general, I encourage you to recreate the lessons to help you learn the techniques and then move on to mixing them up in your own style. If you are a seasoned art journaler, sometimes recreating the lesson is a challenge all its’ own. I work hard to make sure JKIS will be fun and informative to those at all stages of their artistic journeys. I provide a list of suggested materials to have on hand when starting the course, but don’t worry if you don’t have every single product. I will suggest substitutions as often as I can and as always I encourage you to “use what you have”.

You will learn how to use different mediums like watercolor, markers, water-soluble crayons and pencils, stamps, acrylics, inks, sprays and more. I will show you techniques that you can use to create pages just like mine plus build upon them to grow in your own art making adventure. I will be working in both large and small journals this year, mixing it up a bit. So, what will you get each month? Check out this video for details, or scroll down for the written list…


You will get 50 weeks of content following the schedule below:

1st of Every Month

  • Newsletter style PDF containing the theme for the month, my musings and thoughts on the theme, why I chose it and what I hope we get out of our practice during the month. The newsletter will also include some of my favorite quotes and power words that go along with the theme, possibly a challenge to use certain colors or mediums that month, room for notes and possibly page planning

  • Full length art journal lesson in a larger art journal
  • Materials List with substitutions added

5th Sunday of the Month (if applies)

  • I’m leaving this up-in-the-air so that I can have the freedom to choose anything that I think might be fun for us to do together, but you will get something on these weeks

Another feature available on all of my courses at KIU is the discussions area. This is a place right within each course that you can contact me, ask questions and get answers quickly. I’m so excited to offer both these options to reach me and I can’t wait to get more involved with each of my students and help you on your journey!

I hope to see you in JKIS 2017!
