Some of you may be wondering what art journaling is. To put it simply, it’s filling out a journal with art and words to express yourself. There aren’t any rules and it doesn’t have to be an expensive craft, you just fill it out how you see fit! It’s a highly creative and personal craft that can be very therapeutic! There are plenty of resources online if you’d like to learn more about it, but if you’d like some page inspiration or ideas, you can take a look at Wilna’s Extremely Thankful pages or these bird and nature themed pages. Although the videos are over 10 minutes long, Wilna goes into detail and shows her process from start to finish, so you can get a really good idea on how to achieve certain looks.

Scrapbooking is a craft that has been around for centuries, but Wilna brings fresh and modern ideas to the table on how to make a scrapbook look gorgeous. Just take a look at how she layers the elements in this video to create a beautiful Valentine’s page. If you want to see something a bit more summery, take a look at this colourful Love page. There are a ton of scrapbooking videos on Wilna’s channel, so whether you’re a beginner or an expert, it’s definitely worth having a look!

We also think that Wilna has such a soothing voice, so try not to have a nap whilst listening to her talk about mod-podge and crepe paper!
