How to build a journal page (video)

Kristin Meuser presents her step by step process of building a nature journal, page element by element, as you travel through your nature experience. Where to begin? She starts by creating a flexible grid which encourages areas for a page title, conditions notation, color matching dots, notes, and poetry/prose, close up sketches as well as a sense of place landscapes. Kristin’s extensive background as a graphic designer and artist is what gives her pages a cohesive and delightful presence.

At the end of the workshop, Kristin uses two handouts, a composition grid and a page of thumbnail page elements. Get a piece of tracing paper and download the worksheets before you watch the workshop so you can follow along with a great activity that will open your eyes to new composition ideas.
