Dream Journal, new online class offering

I am putting the finishing touches on my first on-line journaling class Dream Journals and boy would I like to see you there. We will learn to use watercolors, resists, we’ll draw, paint, play and create journal pages that are richly layered and dynamic. All techniques covered in the class are taught in my book, Dreaming from the Journal Page, but that isn’t a required purchase. I do hope you might though!  The class stands alone, but also compliments and expands upon what is contained in the pages of the book. And beside that, we will be working in community with one another, helping and encouraging one another as we go.

The daffodil above, is an example of dry on dry watercolor painting, which is covered in two long videos (so far there are over 12 videos in all, more to come). Arrow to the left demonstrates the use of frisket as a resist. I will get you layering, building, drawing, painting and making pretty pages, using easily approachable techniques, in no time flat. I will get you drawing with fun and memorable warm up techniques, and if you have ever been heard to say, “I can’t draw”, you’ll prove yourself wrong.

And in order to get the word out about this new class offering, I would like to give away at least one spot in the class. 

Here is how it works:

1. Simply comment on this post to put your name in the hat.

2. To double your chances of winning, link to this post on your blog, Facebook, Pinterest, or your favorite social networking site. BUT, you will need to come back here and leave a second comment with a link to your post, for a total of two comments in your name. You are responsible for this (please don’t link to me on Facebook, as I won’t be able to keep track of that, the comments here are the easiest way from me to keep it simple) .

So please help me get the word out, will you? I will announce a winner one week from today, July 10, so please check back. Thanks a bunch.

  1. What a cool opportunity to study with a friend. There is nothing better that immersing in art and traveling to worlds undiscovered.


  2. I’ve always admired your journaling, but don’t feel i’ve got much artistic ability….would love to take the class, but could you give me an idea of the level of talent needed?


  3. I would love to win this class with you. I’m retiring soon so I will finally have the chance to play, play, play! My copy of your book hasn’t arrived yet but I can’t wait to see it!


  4. I shared your post on Facebook. I’m happy to get the word out about what I am sure is a fantastic class.


  5. What a fabulous opportunity. However, I’d like to vote Kath Walls for the place as I know she’d love this.


  6. I would love to take this class–I’m hoping to release my creativity, and although it seems counterintuitive, I could use some guidance! With 2 kids 5 and under, some days I just need someone elseo to help me with a little push.


  7. Wow, your class looks wonderful. I could use something like this. Will post it and share on Facebook and Pinterest, but I am not sure I will be able to show you with a link. But I will try.


  8. Wow! This will be so much fun– I’m really, really excited. Ok, I do get excited easily, but to learn more techniques like those in “Dreaming from the Journal Page”? Woot!!!


  9. Man! I would LOVE to win this giveaway. I have the book and it is my favorite thing I’ve purchased all year!


  10. I really, really hope I win – thanks, Melanie! I have your book and I took your on-line classes with Joggles. I’m really looking forward to another class with you!


  11. I just bought you book from Amazon – I can’t wait for it to arrive. Lovely site, and your course looks interesting as well.


  12. Hi Melanie, I have been following your work from the beginning of Quilting Arts. You have proven to be a remarkable woman. I would love to win a spot on your workshop and if not, I will try and take the class anyway. Take care. alena
