Featured Online Grand Course

~ Boiled Books: Plant-Stained Paper ~

Adventure into this unique use of fresh flowers and leaves as we press, boil and extract the plants’ hidden colors between layers of 100% cotton paper. The paper staining outcomes are random, spontaneous and absolutely lovely.

This course includes over 10 hours of instruction including 42 videos and downloadable pdf documents, and continual access to me for mentoring through membership into Rachelle Eason’s Blooming Artists private Facebook group. We will discuss plants to use, successful plant combinations, and variations in design and technique.
This is a course of true wonder as you engage in a little known form of paper dyeing.

Take a peak at the course!

"Welcome Everybody!
I am Rachelle Eason and I am your tour guide this evening!"

I recently started one of my LIVE Art Journaling classes by saying this. We dove into the theme of Cultural Explorations and we were heading for a virtual tour of Austria.

Under the influence of Gustav Klimt's masterpieces The Kiss and Tree of Life, we listened to classical music by Johann Strauss and painted our way up the Danube River, bringing out the natural beauty of the country's landscape, including vineyards and orchards, along the sides. Part of the landscape just happened to turn into the shape of a violin, while drops of color and elements of design made their way into our double page spread as our mouths watered at the photos of divine Austrian desserts.

One of my weekly students, Gloria Hill, sent me a beautiful message after class that made my heart sing…

Not only have you given us the opportunity to learn art and journaling, but also culture, history, artistic techniques, etc., etc., etc. And because of your enthusiasm and powerful yet gentle method of teaching, I am able to learn, actually grasp! And that, dear teacher, has enabled me to begin to have hope in myself.

After our Naoshima Island, Japan and Lima, Peru virtual excursions, Gloria sent me this…

I HAD NO IDEA!!! I want, I need, you to know that every moment of work you and Carleigh [my daughter] pour into your lesson plans are like drops of honey, or hot chocolate, or morsels of cheesecake, or bites of ice cold watermelon. They are refreshing, exhilarating, tasty, you-can’t-just-eat-one, ever so delightful experiences.

These excursions you are gifting us are so wonderful. As I said Tuesday night, I would never have even thought to explore the places you are taking us. And even if I did, without you as my enthusiastic, top notch travel guide, I would never enjoy it as much as I do. So (and I will never stop saying this), thank you, thank you, thank you!

Doesn't Art Journaling sound exciting…and something you don't want to miss?

Rachelle creates this space for me that's very calming. I feel like I'm learning, I feel like I'm moving forward. I also feel like I still get to be myself every prompted step she gives us. It's very much allowing me to release; let things come out. That really helps me mentally, because like, a lot of people, I struggle with the self things of self love, self compassion, self empathy. On the page, I can write a quote, or I can write a little message to myself as a reminder, like this is okay, you did this fine. A lot of times I find the lesson relates to whatever I'm going through, and so I can write it on the page, like I'm writing it to someone, even if the person is me in two years from now.

This is the first time in my life I have truly enjoyed learning, and that I feel I am able to grasp new concepts and succeed in applying them. Rachelle challenges us to go further, equipping us to succeed, and lays a foundation for us to believe in ourselves. And she makes it fun.

Rachelle is a superb teacher. She has many talents in which she excels. Teaching is certainly one of them. I will always be grateful that Rachelle was the one chosen to walk with me in this journey. 

Gloria Hill
The art of Rachelle Eason is an invitation to explore the wonders of nature. Her creations are a kaleidoscope of color and texture that will enhance your appreciation of the natural world. We and our guests enjoy the work of Rachelle in our home.

Ann & Walt Przygocki
I have been taking Art Journaling for over six years.
I started out just to take a couple of classes to help Rachelle out getting started in a new town, but then I fell in love with the weekly opportunity to be an artist!
It is what got me through the last eight months. It brings me joy! Art Journaling via Zoom:) Stress management that was much needed:)

Karen Chappell

As far as a mental wellness kind of thing, and an emotional well being, especially when you're home, I feel like this has contributed to that in many ways as well. But honestly, just the human connection is probably the most therapeutic. I think that's important because it is a live class.

Tricia Woodland
In her role as facilitator, Rachelle has stretched me and pushed me outside my comfort zone…that zone can be a pretty boring place. And I have found that boring > leads to stagnation > leads to fear of change > leads to an endless loop. Not a good place to be.
And I will confess that the main reason I signed up for this class [Art Journaling Weekly] was the emphasis there seemed to be on watercolor. I am so glad I took that step. This visual self expression has brought a new joy into my life. I find myself wanting not only to paint, but to just draw. I'm finding when I read something/anything/all very random, an image comes into my mind that I just want to put on paper.
I'm starting to think of that as self revelation. Which just proves, lol, that we are never too old to learn!
So thank you Rachelle, for facilitating this journey, for growing me, and for nudging me out of my box! I'm packing for a long, long road trip!

Whether in person, in video, or Zoom meetings, Rachelle is prepared and it shows. There is always an advance list of supplies with links on where to find them distributed. Classes move smoothly and progressively through several activities with plenty of time for discussion and questions as she presents.
She is FUN and FUNNY yet her knowledge is immense! She humbly presents techniques and lets your creativity come forth with no judgement. According to Rachelle, there are no mistakes, what happens is art. Her teaching is "hands on" from the get go.
Most impressive overall is her depth of experience and knowledge of inspiring artists and writers that are brought casually into each lesson. Not an overwhelming lecture by no means, just enough information to spark the desire to go further, research, and practice finding your own artistic voice.

When I saw art journaling on YouTubes it is just designs, textures, mixed media and page after page of just different kinds of paints and all that. I kind of thought maybe that was more what what it would be like, but when I take it from Rachelle, it's almost like therapy.

I'm learning a lot in stories from other cultures and also how to [express] what's going on. How to grow as a person, like boots on the ground and I think that makes all of us better people.

Lois Bowers
I bought my mom the month of September and a few art supplies for her birthday in August. I wasn’t sure if she would like but it was just 4 classes. She has learned how to be in a Zoom class and is enjoying it! She spends the week adding details to her journal assignment. She really loves working on it throughout the week! After the four weeks were up she signed up to continue take classes and she has now taken for 4 months. This probably the best gift I could have given her!! It makes a great gift!!

Tricia Woodland
For several years I have been enjoying Rachelle’s special art! I have always loved nature and flowers in particular. Her reuse of flowers and plants in her work gives it a fresh natural aspect and is also eco-friendly. I have purchased several of her plant-stained journals and they are filled with wonderful detail. From the varied stains in the pages, to the imaginative front covers, to the colorful threads used to bind the spines, you can easily see she puts her heart into her work. Rachelle has a special unique eye for beauty and can pull it forth into many different mediums including paper and ceramics. Meeting Rachelle and obtaining some of her art has brought me much happiness and tranquility.

Gayle Forry
The first time I saw a Rachelle Eason plant-stained journal I was moved in a way that I can't explain. Their beauty touched me like no other art has. Since my first encounter with them I have purchased at least a dozen, and plan on purchasing many more. Every time I can't decide what to give someone as a gift and I want to make it extra special, I give a Rachelle Eason plant-stained journal. It's the perfect, hand-made gift of art. One of my friends burst into tears at the beauty of her journal.

She was moved just like I was. I have had the chance to meet Rachelle several times and her sweet spirit adds to the beauty of her journals. I know how much of her heart and soul has gone into them. They are more than journals. They can become pieces of art displayed in many unique ways in your home, photo albums or scrapbooks, or as I am currently using one, as a piece of beauty to bring calm to your soul. I love and appreciate the art of Rachelle Eason and hope and pray that others will be moved by it and see the beauty in life that it inspires.

Susie Jones
If you desire the freshness of nature, but require that beauty to have longer life span than that of a fresh flower - Rachelle Eason journals are the perfect blend. The most amazing flowers are magically transformed on to paper so that they can remain in your life or on your walls or desk. They transform paper into soothing piece of art that will pull you in. You will be totally drawn to the journals but, understand that you will hesitate for a moment before you write the first word. Once you do, you will be hooked. Or…choose to frame a piece of this magical paper, and it will smooth your nerves for years to come. I say choose both.
