Welcome to day 19 of the Bloknote Art Journal Advent!

Today is the 19th day of December… And that means that my new E-course Jot is about to start! Well officially it will start on January 1st. But tomorrow we will have an early lift off to start with planning over Christmas.

I can happily tell you that OVER 250 people are joining jot so far. (Can you tell I am a bit emotional about it? Thank you so much for all your enthusiasm and support!) The early bird sale is until December 25th (€75,- instead of €150,-), so if you were still in doubt whether to join my new course or not… Make sure you decide before the 25th, because Jot will never be offerend that cheap ever again!

In Box nr. 19 of this advent you find…. more art journaling inspiration of course! And it is Tuesday, so time for a new video. This time it is a new episode of BloknoteTV that I lovingly have called “Amy”. I hope you will enjoy!

By the way, I am so sorry to read that some people could not view some of the old BloknoteTV video’s. Apparently I had used some copyrighted music back than. That was never a problem, but in the meantime YouTube got more strict on this. Ever since I started Bloknote Academy in 2014, I only purchase licensed stock music, but back than I was less careful. I will have a look at this soon to see if I can fix these files or replace the music.

And the winners are…

These signed copies of Handlettering & Doodles go to…

You were asked to post something online using Silvester’s color idea of day 13. I think most of you were more in the mood for more Christmassy colors, because there were not too many entrees. Or you just not want my books, hahaha! Nevertheless, there were a few really pretty entrees, so thank you all who’ve  been tagging and mailing me! But there can only be one winner. And the winners is…

Sheila Roos!

Congratulations Sheila! Sheila has made this beautiful art journal page with organic shapes. I love the structures in it!

The bronze Art journal goes to…

I loved reading your best art journal tips in the give away for day 15! But there can only be one winner. And the winner of the Bronze Art Journal for the Day 15 give away is…

Wendy ten Hove!

Congratulations Wendy! I loved Wendy’s tip a lot, as it was so practical. Something that you can do with ease. And a trick that I love myself as well. I love starting with a good dark layer of black gesso (especially when I am angry, hehehe).

Congratulations Marleen! You will not receive your book yet, but as soon as I get my copies in January I will send one out to you! <3
And for the rest… You can pre-order your copy here!
With love,
Marieke Blokland
