Capturing your world through art in a journal is a low-tech, highly rewarding experience, but you don’t need us to tell you that. In her friendly and conversational video workshop, Gay Kraeger guides you through learning watercolor one step at a time: the basics, quick sketches, page design, lettering, and watercolor techniques needed to create illustrations of your life in the form of an art journal.
The founder of Bullet Journal made this tutorial video on how to create a simple habit tracker. Whether or not you Bullet Journal (we do, and we’ve never been so damn organized!), you can use it to create good habits, or break bad ones, by correlating your experience with your performance.
Bullet journals are a popular way for people to track to-dos, remember important events and record everyday life – with a touch of creativity and grace. Artist Rachel Solomon demonstrates how to start bullet journaling, from creating a basic key to adding a creative layout that incorporates bright colors and hand-lettering. She uses Itoya’s ProFolio Oasis Notebook, which has a combination of grid, line and dots – optimal for handwriting, drawing perfect straight lines, developing charts, and rapid journaling.
