Creative Journaling with Babbling Books
Discover journaling and build confidence in your creativity. Nurture mindfulness through honest reflection, and dust off those notebooks and journals you’ve been saving for ‘one day’.
This workshop is perfect for anyone who doubts their creativity, has trouble sticking to creative goals, or has felt intimidated by the huge range of ‘perfect’ journals online. Whether you want to finish a particular journal you’ve started (perhaps a well-intentioned travel journal), or want to kickstart that creative dream you’ve nurtured, this workshop is designed for you.
Unlock your creativity and spark your imagination with tailored activities and guided journaling sessions. We’ll provide you with a wide selection of supplies, so all you need to bring is an open mind.
The focus will be on collage journaling, combining written reflections with creative page spreads that reflect your experiences. Use a mixture of paper items, stamps and more to make creative collages to decorate your pages. You'll learn how to choose colour schemes, achieve visual balance, and see examples of different styles of collage journal for inspiration.
You’re welcome to bring any unfinished notebooks, or any paper ephemera with you (think photos/tickets/postcards), and we can work on developing your creative idea together. Otherwise, if you don’t have a project, we’ll supply you with all the materials you need to begin.
