Exactly what is Journaling Krazy Island Style?

This year in Journaling Krazy Island Style, I will be your instructor for every lesson. I will show you start-to-finish how I create my journal pages. You can then create your own interpretation of the page or copy it exactly. Especially if you are newer to art journaling, or art making in general, I encourage you to recreate the lessons to help you learn the techniques and then move on to mixing them up in your own style. If you are a seasoned art journaler, sometimes recreating the lesson is a challenge all its’ own. I work hard to make sure JKIS will be fun and informative to those at all stages of their artistic journeys. I provide a list of suggested materials to have on hand when starting the course, but don’t worry if you don’t have every single product. I will suggest substitutions as often as I can and as always I encourage you to “use what you have”.

You will learn how to use different mediums like watercolor, markers, water-soluble crayons and pencils, stamps, acrylics, inks, sprays and more. I will show you techniques that you can use to create pages just like mine plus build upon them to grow in your own art making adventure. I will be working in both large and small journals this year, mixing it up a bit. So, what will you get each month? Check out this video for details, or scroll down for the written list…

JKIS2016 Wk31 – Adventure Starts at Home

JKIS TM

JKIS2016 Wk31 – Adventure Starts at Home (lesson by Claudia Ybarra Rossi)
Our theme for this month has been Journeys, and as I was thinking about it I knew I wanted to focus on adventure. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I don’t necessarily get much adventure in my life, and I thought that might be true for many of you as well. So I started thinking more about how we can start right where we live. Most of us live somewhere where there is something to do, even if it’s a small thing. Even before moving to Hawaii, there were things to do in my town, many that I overlooked and never enjoyed while I lived there. So my idea was to focus on adventure starting at home, right where we live right now and to explore the things that are available to us close to home. I encouraged you last week to collect things related to attractions and favorite places in your hometown, and in this lesson we’ll be using them to create a fun collage journal page.
