Discover the world of travel journaling and create treasured memories of your adventures in an inspiring and supportive environment at this relaxing and inspiring Melbourne workshop.

Dust off those notebooks and journals you’ve been saving for ‘one day’. Dig out that box of tickets, maps and things collected on past trips. Let's organise your beautiful memories into a treasured journal! This workshop is perfect for anyone who has a trip coming up they would like to keep a journal for, or anyone who has been on a trip they want to remember.

You will learn:
- Simple techniques for setting up a travel journal
- Creative page layouts
- Tips for keeping organised
- Clear steps you can take to finish your journal!

Whether you want to finish a particular journal you’ve started or set yourself up for journaling success on your next adventure, this workshop is designed for you. No trip is too big or too small - Tamsien will share examples from weekend trips to country Victoria, epic multi-month international adventures, and everything in between.

We’ll provide you with a wide selection of supplies, so all you need to bring is your sense of adventure. The focus will be on collage journaling, combining written reflections with creative page spreads that reflect your experiences. Use a mixture of paper items, stamps and more to make creative collages to decorate your pages. You'll learn how to choose colour schemes, achieve visual balance, and see examples of different styles of journals for inspiration.

You’re welcome to bring any unfinished journals, or any paper ephemera with you (think photos/tickets/postcards/maps), and we can work on developing your creative idea together. Otherwise, if you don’t have a journal, we’ll supply you with all the materials you need to begin.



Aside from this class, this teacher also has the following coming up:

What you'll get
- A travel journal notebook to get you started.
- An illustrated travel journaling essentials tip sheet.

All materials will be provided to get you started, but if you have anything collected from past trips or a special journal for an upcoming trip please bring them along.
