My lesson for 21 secrets 2017

So what will I be teaching in this class? Here is a little recap and the photo of the project we will be doing 🙂

Discovering our own Magic
magical truths
Do you sometimes battle with your inner critic and wonder if you are good enough or if others will understand your art? I know I do. I had battled with this for a long time, down to the point where I had stopped creating completely. I didn’t know how to express my own voice and personality through my art. I didn’t want to tell other people’s story, I longed to tell my own.
I wanted to discover my own magic. I began a journey of self-discovery, of letting go of those fears, of opening up in my art. And I discover new things every day as I show up and paint.
I want to share with you how I do this, and why it is so important to express our own unique personality and voice through our art. We will gather all those wonderfully unique aspects of ourselves, and use them in our art to tell our own story and discover our true magic.



After 7 years and 11 editions, 21 SECRETS Tell Your Story will be the very last and final edition of this wonderful program! So we are celebrating this epic event by giving away 2 PLACES EACH in this awesome class! yay!!

  1. I would love to do this! Can’t believe it’s the last year! I adore your art and your classes and teaching style! Shared an Facebook and Pinterest. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  2. I have shared your post on my personal face book Sharon Peart & my twitter account Peacechild4.

    Thank you..

    Wow the whole 21 offerings looks lusciously amazing and with your own magic kindly offered too it will be a beautiful experience for everyone who takes part..
    I’ve kinda been struggling with creative motivation and being alone a lot ATM so this looks so helpful and full of beautiful heart stirrings.. food for the soul as well as joining with many others .. I’d love to win a place and share in your workshop with you because telling one’s personal story is one of the most important things we can ever do.. How many of us fail though to do this because of a lack of how to do it, also not having the knowledge & support available to us.. With the right support we are helped to value the gift of life and our place in it and I think encouragement makes all the difference. Some places and people you can just bloom with because they offer their heart & soul and you feel stirred to open up your own creative channels because if it.. Nobody can achieve much in this world alone especially if they don’t feel valued & that they have a purpose.. When you truly value yourself and your own story and find a safe place along with wisdom from experienced teachers given to you. It’s amazing how you are given wings and can see the value in yourself and confidence flows which I believe can only be a good thing for the world around us too!!!

    My hope has always been to inspire others by everything I soak in and learn but when I just sit like a lump and don’t express myself it’s sad because I’m created to share and I’m wasting away..

    I am sorry ha ha I wrote rather a story here.. Obviously proof that there is a powerful force at work in any type of creative expression and what you have to offer here and whoever joins with you it is the very right place to be for them to tell their story.. <3

  3. I love everything you do, so i like the change to win a spot, i have never heard of it before, it must have been a real secret, bur when tou are in it, it is already great! I share on facebook and insta

  4. Thank you, Katrina! Shared you twice on Instagram (@bysusuko) and on fb (@Susu Ko). I don´t know this course yet, but it sounds pretty interesting! I´m new to art journaling, so it would be great to jump in and learn a lot!

  5. I shared on Facebook, would love to have the opportunity to participate in 21 secrets since I have never done this workshop and it seems to be an amazing one… when your artwork takes you inside your story I think is going to make for an amazing artwork! Love the opportunity, thank you… ❤️

  6. I would love to win a spot in 21 secrets as I am still struggling to find myself in the art world. This sounds like a great way to help me discover what type of art I really would like to do. Have shared on Facebook.

  7. Hello. I have shared on Facebook. This looks really exciting! Have never done this before. Would love to win a place! Thanks 🙂

  8. Shared on Facebook! I too struggle with an inner critic. It’s so hard not to pick on something you don’t like, or to compare yourself with others. Trying to tell myself that it doesn’t matter as long as I create. I’m a work in progress!

  9. Shared on Google+ and Twitter. I just stumbled across this course this morning and it sounds amazing! I know I’m in for a long, cold, hard winter of being homebound and this looks like just the perfect course to chase away the winter blues. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  10. I shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus….. thanks for the opportunity to win a spot in this wonderful class. I enjoyed it when I took it last time… so much amazing art and wonderful teachers who truly inspire and help you to become better!!! All of the artists will help you realize your tru epotential….

  11. Hello…Shared on FB. I would love to win a spot on 21 secrets because my inner critic has been really loud lately and I would love to shut her up. I have been blocked and can’t seem to find a detour around her. I am just beginning to pull myself from the abyss after losing my husband. I think that I’m ready to begin and then she rears her ugly head and makes me doubt and retreat yet again. Winning a spot would mean the would to me…thank you for the opportunity.

  12. I have share details in Facebook, twitter, Instagram. I have subscribed as well. I haven’t done anything like this before, I’ve just started painting and creating this year. I work really hard at practicing; I paint and draw 4-5 times a week. I’m also quite hard on myself. I compare myself to my local artist friends whose works are incredible. I want to make a name for myself. I haven’t figured out where I fit in this artistry world, I feel completely lost in it.

  13. I am so inspired by all the artists I have met I. Various online courses and would love to continue to explore more ways to be creative in this course. Thanks Katrina for this opportunity.

  14. Hi Katrina, shared this both on my facebook and my instagram accounts. I would love to win a spot (like everybody else) because I just thought about wanting to grow out of my doubts into confidence, and how to do that, when you announced this course…. sort of an answer to my questions… so who knows..

  15. Shared on my facebook Rebecca Ruff and twitter @Rebeccafurf I would love to join as I would love to do more art journaling and I know this course will really inspire me to go for it!

  16. I shared on Twitter. I would love to take your workshop. I took the first 21 secrets and learned a lot from it!!! I’ve been following your work and I love it, admire your enthusiasm and would be a pleasure to win a chance to participate.

  17. I must be living under a rock as I’ve not heard of this course at all! Your lesson has sold me on it Katrina. I have a block when it comes to art journaling. I understand the value and importance, but find that journal really hard to reach for for some reason. I’d love to do this course dedicated on art journaling to help me develop the skills and mindset to really grow and explore. Like you experienced, I have all these stories and emotions bottled up that need to come out, but lack the confidence in knowing just how to express them. Therapy is getting me so far along the healing journey from my traumatic past, however know deep within my soul that art will take me further.

    I’ve shared on my party Instagram page @peonygirlart, my personal Instagram account @peonygirl1, my Pinterest account (Joelene Mitchell), my art Facebook page Peony girl Art and my personal Facebook page (tagged you in both ❤) ❤

  18. I have shared on Twitter! @theresamacn I did 21 Secrets a few times, and it’s very personally energizing. Your work really speaks to me, so I welcome the opportunity to participate in 21 Secrets with you and the other incredible artists. I’ve been seeking something this year that I feel has been eluding me – so I am eager to dig deep and bring my art back to life!

  19. Sorry – forgot to mention that I am on your email list (which is how I found about this giveaway! Also going to share on Google +!

  20. Shared on Twitter (https://twitter.com/OracleGaia/status/913185863181504512) and on FB on my timeline (Phiona Jackson). I also shared on Google+ (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GGGaia/posts/UrPsrrBxsu2). Not sure if you need the links since I shared via the buttons on your blog.

    Now down to the reason why I’d really love to join this course. I have been tempted to join 21 Secrets several times since I began art journalling and mixed media in 2014, but I was always doing other courses and felt a tad overwhelmed. I have got over feeling overwhelmed, and have learnt to pick lessons I really love, instead of feeling I have to do every single one (and in chronological order too! So OCD!) Hearing the news that this is the very last of the series has made me want to definitely experience it once before it ends – I’m sad it is ending, it has always sounded so wonderful and inspiring. I do love your art so, Katrina, your header on here is to die for! Anyway thanks for this chance to win a spot. Congrats on being chosen as a guest teacher in the last 21 secrets ever.

    Hugs from Spain xox

  21. Hi Katrina! Thanks for a chance to win a spot. I shared this post on FB and already get your newsletter. I would love to win the class because 1.)it’s the last 21 Secrets 2.)I can’t afford to pay for it and 3.) I would very much love to give the spot to my sister as a gift. She has never taken a class and she’s a good artist. She would get A LOT out of it.

  22. I have shared this on Twitter and Facebook. I just returned from 2 art workshops in 2 weeks so my workshop purse is empty for the rest of the year. During those workshops I heard from a number of different teachers that I need to get my mind out of the way. My inner artist senses what I need to do, but I don’t know how/what to do to take my work where it feels like it needs to go. My mind just stalls, and I seem wary of just trying this and that to get it to the next level. I’m hoping this workshop would help me with this.

  23. I would love to work with all the amazing teachers! Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot in this class. Peace, Ronda

  24. I shared on Instagram. I would really love to win a place in this awesome class as I know it would really help me in my art journey. I’ve always struggled with art journaling & with being able to express what I’m feeling both visually & in words. I think this would help me lots
