Juicy Soul Retreat – Just 2 Weeks Away!


Have you signed up yet?  Space is limited for this “spa day for your soul.”

Each session is formatted the same yet participant after participant all concur that they get “something different” out of each session.  Julie and I love sharing our journals and the process/techniques that we have been using most recently in our journals.

We are often asked “What do you ‘do’ with a finished journal page?”

Here are 10 ideas…Start by scanning, photographing or photocopying your page.

1. Create framed art
2. Make Cards
3. Create a bunting
4. Make Tags
5. Make Envelopes
6. Scan & make Fabric
7. Upload your designs to Society 6 and make anything!
8. Create wrapping paper for small packages
9. Make Digital artwork for blogs, etc. (our logo for the retreat is a perfect example of this!)
10. Make collage sheets for jewelry

Here are some sweet buttons I made with a scanned journal page in the background.  Comment on this post and I’ll do a drawing at the retreat and send you a free button!

Juicy Soul Retreat – Feb 24 – Registration Open



Juicy Soul Retreat
11:00 AM – 5:00 PM

$95 early registration special

$105 on 2/22 and beyond

The Juicy Soul Retreat is an afternoon of journaling and creative play. We will be teaching you how to live and create in your journals as your own personal studio for creative expression. You can begin a new journal or you can continue to build in one of your existing journals. The choice is yours. Our intention is that you spend time in your journal with paints, textures and words and revisit the bliss of journaling through art. You will learn techniques for creating backgrounds, color pages, and share your experiences in the pages of your journal.

Juicy Soul Retreat – Last chance to sign up!!!
Sunday, March 13 (11am-5pm)

If you take one workshop this year…make it the Juicy Soul Retreat!   It only happens twice a year and your next chance won’t be until September.  Can your spirit really wait another 6 months to be awakened and enlivened?

Don’t miss this full day of exploring and rejuvenating yourself from the inside out.  Discover how images bypass the mind and go straight to the depths of your soul.   This is the one time you can arrive not feeling creative or inspired  and come out feeling accomplished  and empowered.

Visual journaling is not typical journaling.  It’s not about the words you write or about keeping a diary.  It doesn’t have to be a daily practice…you can do it anytime, anywhere. It’s about the images, colors, and textures that lead you on a journey of self discovery.

If your hobby is scrapbooking or collage work, you will be a natural.  Anyone can do this and doesn’t require buying a bunch of new tools to have this experience.  Everything you need you already have at home, such as crayons, colored pencils, etc.

There is always something new and special to discover at the Juicy Soul Retreat.  If you have taken this workshop in the past, then you already know Julie and Andrea always have something original and refreshing to offer at this experience.

This is your time for inspiration, creativity and self discovery.

Here are some sneak peeks of what is waiting for you….
