Thank you to all who entered! The winners picked at random are: Margaret Kennedy and Shell! Congratulations! Connie will be in touch with more details for you.


If you’ve been around the online art community for a while, and in particular the art journaling community, chances are you know of Connie Solera. I came across her back when I was recovering from depression and discovering the world of online courses {about nine years ago!}, and loved her immediately. She has a warm and positive energy, huge amounts of integrity, and is incredibly supportive of those wanting to express themselves more fully through their art. 

She also began 21 Secrets, a series of online workshops featuring 21 teachers, and has been running it, with different themes and all sorts of teachers, for the past seven years. This edition, entitled Tell Your Story, is the last one ever! And when Connie invited me back as a teacher {I did it once before a few years ago}, of course I said yes!


Tell your story through your art


The premise of this final edition of the workshop series is expressing your experiences and your life in all sorts of different creative ways, through art. And you don’t have to be an art journaler to join! I’m not, as you may know, and I find the lessons are always applicable to art beyond art journaling.

You can do it as a source of self discovery and healing, as a means of expressing what’s hard to put into words, as a way to explore ideas and techniques, or a combination of all those things.

Here’s a quick breakdown of what it is and how it works:

  • 21 SECRETS is a 150+ page downloadable eBook filled with 25+ hours of videos, full colored photos, templates, and clear instruction intended to inspire and deepen the way you approach art journaling, from 21 diverse teachers, myself included.*
  • Unlimited access to all workshops at once! You pick and choose which ones you do and when. There is no time limit or deadlines to meet — these workshops are yours to keep!
  • This is an opportunity to learn a variety of mixed media techniques and approaches from the comfort of your home/studio {and at great value!}. 
  • There is, of course, a private Facebook group where you can share, be inspired, and receive warm, supportive feedback.
  • It costs $98, but between 3am PST on Wednesday, September 27th and 12am PST on Saturday, September 30th, you can get $10 off in the Early Bird Sale. Simply type in STORY at checkout and it will be applied automatically.
  • After purchase you automatically receive a confirmation email for your order. An email with information on how to download the 21 SECRETS eBook will be delivered to you by 9am PST on Monday, October 30th.
