In today’s rewind to videos we are going to talk about Journaling by 5’s. Shannon Green, one of the people whose videos I watch on YouTube, came up with this genius time exercise for freeing yourself up to get creative and have fun. You can learn about it here on her video or by joining her Facebook group. (those links are provided in the video descriptions over on YouTube). The following 5 links will take you through my results from doing the steps in my first Journaling by 5 book.
Step one Background: paint/inks
Step two Texture: collage/recycled bits
Step three Patterns: stamps and stencil
Step four Focal Point: words and images
Step five Details: pen/pencil
After all those steps you then get your Free play which is where you take what you have made and add to it any additional things you think is needed. This can be doodles, more paint, more stamping etc. Whatever you desire. I still need to film the video showing how mine look now.
Hope you take up Shannon’s challenge and try this out for yourself. I am currently working on my second book.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend
