An inspiring 30-day eCourse in Visual Journaling: Self-Study Version
with Journaling Crusader and Creative Life Coach, Katherine Torrini
Of course you love journals! You just never actually use one
- fill your shelves with blank books too gorgeous to use
- won’t let yourself start one more journal…until you finish the last 7 that you started.
- love buying art supplies so much …that you never actually get around to using them
- make sure every journal page is perfect…by leaving it perfectly blank.
- never waste art supplies–because you never let yourself use any!
You’ve tried journaling before–or wanted to. Maybe it felt hard or boring–or like too much writing. Maybe you felt silly or pressured to create a masterpiece. Maybe you thought journaling wasn’t for you, but most likely your Inner Critic got in there and shut it all down.
- you woke up with a sparkle in your eye, looking forward to your day
- creative ideas popped up all day long–while working, carpooling, even doing dishes!
- you had the energy, focus, motivation to turn those ideas into completed projects
- you couldn’t help pulling out old projects and finishing them up in your spare time
- everyone commented on how much fun you were to be around
- you felt confident, inspired, overflowing with energy
- you inspired other Creative Sparks to venture out with their creativity
- you doodled, sketched, and played in your journal every day
The secret to creative freedom
Your journal can absolutely be the safe, delightful, and irresistible place that you can’t wait to get to every day. It can be your haven, your playground, and your creative co-conspirator. Your journal can easily fill your well so full that your creativity overflows into the rest of your life. The trick is knowing how to do it!
After 10 years of regular journaling and over 75 completed journals, I’ve found the secret to making a juicy journaling practice an easy, natural, and almost effortless part of my life. And the rest of my life has gotten so much juicier as a result!
You’re talking to a journaling crusader
Over the four years I’ve taught visual journaling classes in Austin, Tx I’ve watched dozens of students light up and get the journaling “bug.” Their lives have blossomed right along with their journals. I believe in this amazing work so much I proudly call myself a Journaling Crusader. I’m thrilled to finally make this magic accessible to Creative Sparks everywhere through this e-course version of my popular class.
In this 30-day e-course you will:
• Discover a daily journaling practice that’s fun, easy and irresistible
• Experience guilt-free creative play
• Lose your fear of the blank page, “wasting paper” and “messing up”
• Learn to Kick your Inner Critic out of your journal

• Re-write the rules for journaling–your way
• Gain the freedom and confidence to express whatever comes up for you
• Watch your creative juices overflow joyfully into your “normal” life
• Connect with an online creative tribe of Juicy Journalers from around the world
and…as an added bonus….
“I have become inspired to create again! Journal pages are an easy outlet
because they don’t have to be works of art every time. I have stopped worrying
about it being perfect. I recommend this course because it will inspire
you and loosen you up to see what really matters.”-– Art Guilt Goddess, Austin, Tx
“Thank you for opening up your amazing journals for us!
I thought journaling had to be all writing. Seeing that you did so many fun things
in your journal gave me permission NOT to have to write in mine.

“This class has been so wonderful for me! Playing in my journal really opened me up to ideas.
It doesn’t have to be so serious! Just get the paints/markers out and see what happens.
That I filled a journal is so satisfying. I want to keep working in it. ”

How will this class help me? It will give you all the inspiration, structure, support and accountability you need to make a daily journaling practice an easy, regular part of your life.
What if I’ve never journaled before? Perfect! You’re going to have a blast and create some great habits from scratch.
What if I already keep a journal–what is there for me ? There are dozens of new, whimsical approaches to your daily pages that will juice up your creativity and have you fall in love with your journal all over again. Seasoned journalers have been thrilled with my courses and found new freedom and avenues for expression.
I’m used to writing in my journal. Do I have to do the visual stuff? You are the boss of your journal and you always get to choose how you do your daily pages. You can doodle them, write them or even finger-paint them!
Do I have to show anyone my journal? Absolutely not! Your journal is a sacred space and for your eyes only—unless you choose to share. It’s completely up to you.
I’m confused–do I journal online or in a book? You do your journaling on paper, in a blank book. What makes this an e-course is that all the course materials, bonuses, support and journal prompts can be accessed online from anywhere in the world.
Do I have to use the journal prompts you send, or can I do what I want? You can always do your pages any way you want. The prompts are for inspiration, but you may use them –or not–on any day you choose.
What if I miss a day or get behind? Give yourself a hug and start again. Do whatever makes it easy to come back to the page and keep going.
What kind of supplies do I need? Are they expensive? You’ll need a blank un-lined journal and a few other basic supplies that you probably already have lying around. All daily prompts can be completed with basic, inexpensive supplies. A full supply list will be provided upon registration.
I don’t like drawing, do I have to draw? nope, not a line. (unless you want to!)
I don’t like writing, do I have to write? nope, not a word (unless you want to!)
I have young children and don’t have time to journal everyday. How can I participate? This course is designed to be flexible. It can be done in 5 minutes a day if you choose. Even busy moms can find 5 minutes for themselves in a day. (I know, because I’ve been a busy mom and a juicy journaler since my kids were born over 10 years ago!)
“My visual journal gives me a space to be creative and fun, to inspire myself and express goals,
think out loud on paper. It is a fun and easy way to work through real issues and blocks that
hinder my creativity”. –H.B., freelance writer
