Mixed Media

Seven days of Journal Making


New York City artist Julie Fei-Fan Balzer does marvelous journal work, as this video clearly shows. The process of journal making becomes a little more understandable watching this time-lapse piece. A painter and mixed media artist, she is also co-host of Scrapbook Soup TV (PBS), is a frequent magazine contributor, produces her own podcasts and operates Balzer Designs.  Whew!

  1. So much fun! I was drawing all over my notes in a meeting today and the prof next to me leaned over and said, sort of jokingly, “Stop that!” “Why?” I replied. No way – this is just a great video to watch and be inspired to simply relax and enjoy yourself in the act of creation. 🙂


  2. Loved this! I love the IDEA of journalling, just not the discipline of the reality! I guess its like most exercises – the more effort you put in, the more you get out of it…


    • I always think it’s persistence that helps creativity – including journals. Good for you. It takes a lot of energy to keep a journal. Glad you enjoyed the video.
