You are sure to come away with painty hands and happy hearts, revitalized and inspired.

  • Specially curated supply kits* (US shipping only included in your registration fee) will excite your creative spirit and inspire new levels of creative expression.  Kits contain a few of our favorite things.  Full suggested supply list below.  All our recommended supplies can be found in our special shop here. 
  • Julie and Andrea have extensive practice not only with the tools and materials of Mixed Media art journaling but with the techniques and instruction as well.
  • All of the live sessions will be recorded so if you need to miss part of the retreat you will be able to watch the recording after the live event.  **NOTE**We can not guarantee this option due to the possibility of technology problems.  We will do our best to deliver this.

We long for creative connection and this is the exact event to not only connect you to a group of other creatives but connect (or re-connect) you with a regular art making practice.


Julie & Andrea have both developed a habit of showing up for creative expression regularly. It is a daily way of life that manifests most of the time in small ways but sometimes huge ways too.

Juicy Soul Retreat was born in 2012 from their collective desire to share this passionate way of creative living with others. They share how you too can make a creative practice that works with your lifestyle to infuse some visual art into your regular routine in tiny or huge ways and everything in between.

The following is a loose agenda of our time together.

Saturday night: Introductions and materials overview.  We'll make some painty papers for constructing your very own art journal on Sunday morning. Pajamas are the dress code so get comfy, pop up some popcorn and pour your favorite beverage and let’s play!

Sunday morning: We will compile your painty papers into a simple sewn art journal and jump into tag-team demos.

  • Andrea and Julie’s approach to the visual journal page mesh together nicely but they each have techniques and processes they gravitate toward. 
  • No need to fear the blank page because our session Saturday night ensures every page has a little something on it.  

  • Breaks to get up and stretch and move will be every 90 minutes through our time together. 
  • An extended (45min) break for lunch but the room will remain open then back from lunch and our demos and surprise guest appearances will continue.

Our final circle will feature a visual showcase of your work and the AHA moments we all had.

Registration is now open and in order for you to receive your JUICY kit in the mail in time you will need to register by August 14. 


This retreat includes a kit shipped to US residents only.  Please inquire if you would like to participate from outside the US and we will provide you with a supply list.  We will refund a portion of your registration fee to cover the non-included kit.

*Notice the price of our retreat has been reduced due to the fact we will be sending smaller more select kits as most of our participants have "all the things" already.  Any supplies you need will be gladly packaged up and sent to you along with your special kit with shipping included.
