Everyone has a story to tell, and creative journaling gives you the opportunity to tell your story in a completely unique way

Join me in my studio as we explore
creative art’n’soul journaling
and learn to tell our stories in a whole new and different way

Journals can be used in many different ways

They can tell a visual story, or be used as a meditative or creative practice.
They create a safe space for healing, and a way to explore and understand ourselves and our world a little better.
They can even be used as a process for making positive changes in our lives.
Journaling gives you a way to discover the answers to the questions that lie deep within.

Journaling is a powerful way to connect with your soul

sometimes you don’t need many words to express yourself

Creative Art'n'Soul Journaling

sometimes you don’t need any words at all

Creative Art'n'Soul Journaling

Creative Art’n’Soul Journaling offers you a space to explore techniques for making beautiful journals,
as well as processes for using them.

Every month I present a new video workshop that will inspire you to create and play

Learn how to use
fabric, thread and paper – mixed media and found objects – words and images
to make beautiful and creative journals that can be used as a place to hold and treasure your personal stories.

Discover how to create your own symbolic language that will allow you to express yourself in a visual way that only you can understand.

During each workshop I’ll be sharing my tips and techniques for making all types of journals, as well as ideas and processes for using them. It’s my hope that along the way you’ll discover just how rewarding creative journaling can be, as a way for telling and sharing stories, for personal healing, or simply for the sheer joy of making beautiful art books.

I very much enjoyed the first month’s lesson and working on these journals! I am thrilled to have learned how to tea-dye pages and to sew in the signatures. Thank you and all of the group members for sharing their expertise. I’m going to start another journal and I look forward to next month’s lesson.

 Thank you Linda Matthews for making this group and for inspiring people with your style and knowledge. I am a newbie, but I have set up my craft room, collected tools, material, avocado dyed, coffee dyed papers, fabric, sewing machine, paper cutters, etc. Your style speaks to me like nobody else…. and that says a lot, I have been watching tutorials by almost everyone out there! I know what I want to be able to do, and your tutorial examples are so right on.

I very much liked and learned a lot from the December project. If I had to choose the very best, most meaningful thing, it would be the accountability system: At the end of the day, writing on the day’s square in the monthly calendar what I did toward my artistic goals. A few times I realized I had done nothing–and, not wanting to break the chain, I embellished a journal page or sewed a seam so that I could write something on the calendar. I’m looking forward to doing my first monthly review.
