 What People are saying:

I highly recommend Kristie’s class, Artful Adventures – Art Journaling Basics, for anyone who has dabbled or who has thought about dabbling in art journaling. Kristie debunks the myth that you need to be an artist to have an art journal. With her open, shoot from the hip style, you learn what an art journal can be, what to look for when buying one and how to create gorgeous background patterns. Getting messy can be the hardest thing for Type A people like me but after watching Kristie slap gesso on the page with her hands, I want to try it! Thanks to Kristie’s tips and tricks I feel more confident in my own fledgling art journaling attempts!

I love Kristie’s approach to learning about art journaling.  I am so glad I got a chance to participate in her online class.  It is full of beginner info that I found invaluable, and everyone should have the ebook on hand.


Thank you for Artful Adventures. I’ve stolen an afternoon from Christmas-related projects to get in to the Artful Adventures Art Journaling class. I’m really enjoying it and actually learning a lot! Thanks for being neat, organized, concise and artful in your presentation. Thanks also for the fun printables and quotation pages — they make getting started much less daunting.
