8-Layer Journaling – Session 8!

Good morning!

I am so happy to share the 8th, and final video of my new mini-series of art journal how to videos with you!

I am calling this series:

8-Layer Journaling

Back in February of 2015, Shannon Green put out a YouTube video series, called Journaling by 5s. It took the fear and guesswork out of art journaling. I would highly recommend you go check that process and her work out…Shannon is truly inspirational!!!

To quickly paraphrase her process is that you create 20 art journaling pages in 5 – 15 minute sessions, by layering 2 pre-determined media types per session.

Shannon’s Session are as follows:

  1. Background – Paint, Ink
  2. Texture – Collage, Recycle
  3. Pattern – Stamps, Stencils
  4. Focal Point – Words, Images
  5. Details – Pen, Pencils

Although, I really do love this process, I modified it pretty early on, because I was nowhere near able to get my sessions completed within the allotted time, which drove me BANANAS! I felt like I would do better if I limited myself to one medium per session, and to limit my use of mediums to only 5 options. For example, for the paint layer, I limit myself to only 5 tubes/bottles/jars/etc of color, to cut down on my need to overthink the process. Doing this allowed me to finally get all 20 pages done within the allotted 15 minutes. SUCCESS!!

I have used this process for creating my Soul Sister Cards, and for something I like to call Doodling books that I find super fun to play on while I am on an airplane or waiting someplace!! Every time I have done this process the pages end up looking so different from each other, and I am always so amazed at how cool they turn out!!!

So my modified version, which I am calling 8-Layer Journaling is:

  1. Paint
  2. Paper
  3. Washi
  4. Stamps
  5. Stencil
  6. Focal Image
  7. Words
  8. Pen Work

So, with all of the logistics out of the way…

Let’s get on to Layer #8

Pen work!

  1. Grab a small handful of some of your favorite doodling pens/pencils/markers/etc.
  2. Set my timer
  3. and get to doodling all sorts of random doodles on your pages!!

If you do decide to do this 8-Layer Journaling process with me, I want to highly encourage you to not purchase anything new…use whatever you have in your stash. (This is probably something we could all hear a little bit more of!)

I hope that this is something that you might be inspired to try, and if you do, please share on Instagram #8layerjournaling I would LOVE to see your creations!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know in the comments section! I am always happy to be of help!!

Now it is your turn to get creating!

Here is to having some fun!

Let’s get on to Layer #7

Words!

  1. I have typed, formatted and printed up a list of various thoughts that I want to remember by documenting them onto my cards. (These are printed on regular printer  paper)
  2. I grabbed a pair of scissors, and a glue stick
  3. Set my timer
  4. and got to playing!!

Just in case you need some help coming with ideas on what thoughts you might use on your 8-Layer Journaling pages, here are the ones I printed (I did not use them all), for your use. Please feel free to copy, paste and use any or all of these for your personal use! 🙂

My List of Thoughts

  • You can find me somewhere in between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity, and slaying my goals
  • Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning, the Devil says, “Oh crap, she’s up!”
  • There’s room for all of us to win. If you don’t live like that, prepare to lose
  • She was powerful, not because she wasn’t scared but because she went on so strongly, despite the fear
  • You did not wake up today to be mediocre
  • Don’t let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace
  • Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you ever have been, to stand up taller than you were before
  • Sometimes your only available transportation is the leap of faith
  • You can have anything that you want as long as you are willing to do the hard work to get there
  • The surest way to be miserable is to try and please everybody
  • Everything you want is on the other side of fear
  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase
  • Trust the magic of new beginnings
  • You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens.
  • Don’t be so hard on yourself, just get back up and try again
  • Whenever you are feeling bad for yourself, get up and go help someone else
  • You never know what you are capable of, until you go out and try
  • Get up, get dressed, show up, and do the work…the rewards will come later
  • Live today as if it is a gift…because it is
  • I don’t always know what I want to do, but I do know what kind of woman I want to be
  • Go live your dreams…out loud
  • Dare to be different. Dare to be a pioneer. Be the kind of woman who in the face of adversity will continue to embrace life and walk fearlessly toward the challenge
  • Turn your wounds into wisdom
  • The biggest adventure you could ever take is to live the life of your dreams
  • Be thankful for what you have, you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
  • You get in life what you have the courage to ask for
  • Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.
  • If you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come

If you do decide to do this 8-Layer Journaling process with me, I want to highly encourage you to not purchase anything new…use whatever you have in your stash. (This is probably something we could all hear a little bit more of!)

I hope that this is something that you might be inspired to try, and if you do, please share on Instagram #8layerjournaling I would LOVE to see your creations!!!

Soul Book #5 – Word of the Year!

Good evening!

Tonight’s Soul Book video is me sharing my Word of the Year Soul Book spread.

I really struggled with coming up with a word of the year, I mean there are just so many words that could fit so well, with everything going on in my life. Adventure, brave, journey, transformation, I can go on and on and on.

The word I finally settled on was the word

Embrace

I chose the word embrace because I feel like what I need more than anything right now is to embrace all of the changes and new opportunities coming my way, embrace the authentic me that I am allowing to come out and shine through the facade of “what is expected”, embrace my uniquenesses, my body, this skin that I am in. Embrace embodies what my focus needs to be this year!!!

If you could choose 1 word for this year, what would that word be? Why? I would love you to tell me in the comment section! 🙂

Materials Used:

  • Gesso
  • Acrylic paints
  • Various stencils
  • Baby wipes
  • Decorative craft papers
  • Decorative stickers
  • Black pen
  • I printed my word of the year and the definitions (found by Googling “Define Embrace”) off of my computer onto regular printer paper
  • Black Staz-On inkpad
  • Various stamps
  • Gold Signo ink pen
  • Tag
  • Medium sized project life card
  • Hole punch
  • Corner rounder
