Introduction to Creative, Art, Junk, Travel + Bullet Journaling & Scrapbooking + How to Start
A creative journal is a visual record of your thoughts and feelings and is rooted in self-expression. From the imagery to the words, everything that you do in your creative journal reflects your state of mind and aesthetic preferences.
The way you use your creative journal is up to you. On some days, you might feel like you want to write more about what’s going on in your head and not focus so much on imagery, but on other days you might simply want to cut and stick pictures that reflect your current mood.
A journal can be whatever you want it to be. You can use it to reflect upon your everyday experiences, to make plans and to-do lists on a regular basis, to make a vision board and keep a track of your goals, to keep a record of your creative experiments, to preserve memories from special occasions, or to simply relax and have fun.
However, as exciting as this may sound, starting a journal can sometimes seem a bit complicated and overwhelming. On social media sites, people often share beautifully planned journals with terms such as “art journal”, “junk journal”, “bullet journal” and so on. And this can all seem too confusing in the beginning.
But in this class, I aim to demystify these terms and simplify the process for you.
My name is Ridhi and I am a multidisciplinary artist, art educator, and creative entrepreneur. I run four creative brands under which I sell jewelry, home decor products, surface design prints, stationery, wall art, and different kinds of lifestyle and gifting essentials.
I have been making creative journals for over a decade now and today in this Skillshare class, I am to share all my learnings with you.
We will be learning about all the different forms of journaling one by one and will look at ways in which you can personalize your journals. We will understand similarities and differences between scrapbooking, creative journaling, art journaling, bullet journaling, and travel journaling.
And finally, we will also be making one basic journal spread together, that will help you kick start your journaling process.
