Capture life’s moments in a memorable medium.
By April Cumming
If a photo is worth a thousand words, then how many words is a hand-drawn illustration worth? Through her company’s workshops, Mint & Maple Founder Natalie Coulter has spent years teaching countless students how to live more creative lives, instructing them in the arts of calligraphy, brush lettering and watercolor techniques before launching her Kickstarter campaign for The Art Journal Kit. The kit, which successfully received funding from the crowdsourcing platform in October 2017, is designed to be a workshop in a box.
Curated tools include a soft-bound travel book with high-quality watercolor paper, a watercolor set with a portable water brush, a permanent fine-line pen, a pencil, a rubber art eraser, washi tape, a pencil bag and an illustrated book packed with step-by-step tips and newbie guidance for how to practice the craft of art journaling.
