ART SHOULD BE MORE THAN
JUST SOMETHING PRETTY TO LOOK AT

How to create & develop your own creative practice with a simple pen and paper. While drawing meaning & mindfulness into your life

Do you want to spend more time on your mindfulness practice? Or just connect with your inner creativity? Because you know it's been what's missing in your life?

Do you want to learn how to make this a daily or at least regular (& easy) part of your busy life? In a way that is simple without taking up too much of your day or weekend?

Sick of wishing you could do something creative and actually do it?! But with a simple pen and paper so it doesn't feel like hard work and without the pressure?

Want access to design templates AND tips to my Deliberate Doodles practice? So you're not trying to do this alone & left feeling lost and frustrated thinking that you're 'not creative enough' (NOT TRUE!) 

Do you want to feel supported and be surrounded by like-minded people who inspire you and share the tools to thrive in your new creative AND mindfulness practice?


YES PLEASE!


Imagine having a set of tools and simple practices that you use every day to connect with yourself and a creative practice that fills you with JOY!

Seeing beautiful pieces of artwork around your home that YOU created (even when you doubted whether you were 'creative) that is BOTH beautiful to look at but ALSO FULL OF MEANING.

WHY WORK WITH ME?

  • What began as just ordinary distraction doodles + over a decade of exploration, has become an artform for me to express & share words that hold meaning for me. Now YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
  • I am also a mum and know how hard it is to find time & space inbetween your responsibilities for the house, kids AND work to connect with yourself!
    Yet you know this self-care is important for your sanity and how you can give back to your family & community! I know how to make the practice something simple you can incorporate around your busy life.
  • My Deliberate Doodles process is a culmination of my years as a professional designer and artist, streamlined down into simple steps while also infused with all the creativity and meaning that we ALL need for a joyful and fulfilled life.
    This means, years of hard-won experience to give you new tools & ideas to try out and tweak to fit your own creative practice.

 YES PLEASE!

You also get access to the private Facebook Group that is exclusive to students of the Deliberate Doodles Course!


  • I don't have the flexibility in my season of life to hold in-person workshops - Hello pre-schooler mama here!
    So the facebook group is the closest to a community I can create easily + give my personal attention to you. You don't have to do this alone!
  • Connection to other like-minded people boosts your own creativity & inspires you to keep going. It takes time & focus to learn a new habit and connect with your creativity. Don't make it harder by trying to do it alone!
  • There is an energy and magic when people with the same heart & values gather together (If you resonate with me & Deliberate Doodles I know you love art, creativity, mindfulness & value beauty and inspiration for your life!) Experience that magic with us!
  • Sometimes, online learning can feel really disconnected - the Facebook group means you can ask me questions (which also helps other students) & I get to keep my boundaries around time spent with my babies! And you can do it at a time that suits you!


Maybe you've tried general ways to be more mindful in your life? Meditation. Colouring books. Exercise...

And maybe you've gone to some creative or craft workshops to tap into & explore your creativity more...

With Deliberate Doodles, you can immerse yourself in a practical, simple way to practice that mindfulness. Without having to take time off work or family time to go on a retreat or to a class. 

Without feeling frustrated, lost and like you've wasted your precious time working it out on your own. 

Plus you'll get a beautiful artwork at the end of it! Something you can show off!

Seeing it everyday in your home will be a daily reminder of the messages and meaning you want AND DESERVE to have around you. 

NOT SURE IF YOU'LL HAVE TIME OVER THE NEXT 4 WEEKS?

  • You get lifetime access - meaning that you get access to any upgrades, new resources & training that will be added in the future - all for this early bird price!
  • Lifetime access also means - you can go at your own pace.
  • Missed a week because you were away? All the training will still be there waiting for you.
  • Want to binge watch a few modules at once after work? Go right ahead! (The beauty of learning online is, it's available 24/7!)

Why join the course when you can explore these concepts from the 5 day challenge?

Absolutely, you can begin to explore and create your creative and mindfulness practice from what I've given you over the Free 5 Day Challenge. 

I'm so glad you've found it useful, valuable and something you want to keep going with! 

Creating an intentional creative practice, consciously choosing to work on your mindfulness takes time and focus.
Your self-care, your connection to your creativity and that joyful, fulfilled life you're after? It is SO WORTH your time investment & focus.

Which is why I launched the challenge. To create the space for you to take the time & attention to focus on this area of your life. 

I know that there is enough there for you to use as a foundation for your own creative journey. It is totally possible! 

But with my help and the wisdom & different perspectives of your fellow students, you'll get there a lot faster, more easily and effectively

Details:

Timeline & Schedules

Deliberate Doodles will be run LIVE June 5th - June 30th - but if you've joined after these dates, or in the middle of it. You will still get access to the course!

Just know that there may be some students a little ahead. Some will be a little behind because they have some schedule conflicts. With lifetime access, there is no deadline! 

How long do I have access to the course content - videos, worksheets & facebook group?

You have lifetime access, so that means you can take your time to go through the content. When it's LIVE, each week will be sent out week by week but after that, you can access all of them whenever you like. So you can go through all of it again a few months down the track if you want to refresh your learning. You can also go through the LIVE rounds again if and when I run them. Same with the facebook group. (For as long as I have control of the platform & as long as this course is capable of being run online! I don't know what will happen in 50 years time!)

It also means you have access to any updates, resources, worksheets or templates I add in the future!

Can I share my login details with a friend?

Sorry, due to the nature of this being an online course & for the sake of my business, you are purchasing your own personal access. Please suggest to your friend to invest in her own login! 

Can I sell ARTworks I make from this class?

Due to all copyrights remaining with me for the templates & designs - you cannot sell the works you create using my template designs. It's for personal use only (or to gift to a friend!) & part of this workshop's good juju.

For good karma and as a general rule, even with your own designs, if it looks similar to my style, if you're a bit unsure, then no, you can't resell them. As I'm also sharing the actual process I use to create the professional artwork to sell in my shop and for clients, it would be a violation of my creative and business copyright.

 I'll love it if you take the marks you learn and develop into your own artwork and creative practice!

Do I need to join LIVE?

You can join AT ANY TIME. If there is a LIVE round coming up, if you're already in the course, you are VERY WELCOME to join in the LIVE round! I would love you to! Even if it's just commenting in the private Facebook Group.
But no, you don't have to. I get that life can be busy and you have other plans. With lifetime access, you can go at your own pace and catch up when you it suits you! And you can even come back and do the whole course again later if you want to revisit the practice with a proper structure.

What tools will I need?

You'll just need a pen, paper & a journal. Some post-it notes will be good too! A smart phone or ability to take simple photos of your work to share in the Facebook group and the commitment to do the exercises will help you get the most out of this course.
Adobe Reader to open the PDF worksheets I will have for you.

Do I need high-speed internet?

Because I am sharing via videos, yes you will need it. If you could access the 5 day challenge videos you should be fine.

Generally, the internet most people have will be enough for you to access all the course content. Also know that with worksheets and templates for you to download, you may need to wait a minute or two. 

Are you ready to create your own Deliberate Doodles with meaning & mindfulness?
