Last October, I had the chance to work with Moleskine Philippines via capsule journaling workshops where I shared tips and techniques I have learned after years of journaling.

We played with Moleskine stamps, washi tapes, and colored pencils.

I also brought with me my favorite handmade stamps, created by my friend, Karla Pasion of Kraft Kart.

The stART Journaling Workshop

Doing a workshop on journaling has always been one of my creative dreams.   As an introvert, I have always preferred working behind the scenes but I love journaling so much I was so excited to share my practice with others.  So, on August 20, 2016, my wish came true with the help of Craft Party Ph.

We spent the morning documenting our thoughts, ideas, dreams and wishes in our journals.

At The Chalk Lettering Workshop

Last January, I won in a raffle.  And the prize …. a free seat to my craft idol Alessandra Lanot’s Chalk Lettering Workshop!!!  Here are some pictures from the event.

I don’t really like using chalk.  But, I love lettering so much that I was willing to work with it.IMG_0216 IMG_0217 IMG_0220 IMG_0221

Before working on the board, we made a thumbnail version of our sketch first. We were asked to use one of our goals this year.  Don’t mind what I wrote.  I’m not going to Beijing or Bangkok.

Here are some of the other participants’ works.

Some tips I learned: Sharpen your chalk.  Use dry chalk when making your preliminary sketch.  Use wet chalk for the final output.
