Free Lesson – Create Inviting Journal Pages

In this bonus lesson, I am sharing a really quick and easy way to make your journal pages inviting to write on. Once we have the pages prepared, we will start adding the wonderful things that we are grateful for in our life.


  • Journal
  • Brush Pen, or alternative
  • Watercolour, or pencils and pens


Take Action

Add the title of your gratitude page, using a brush pen if you like.

Use watercolour to create lots of different shapes across your two pages.

Add decorative borders around each of the shapes that you added in paint.

Start adding things you are grateful for into each of the boxes.
