The Grand Course
Adventure into this unique use of fresh flowers and leaves as we press, boil and extract the plants’ hidden colors between layers of cotton paper. The paper staining outcomes are random, spontaneous and absolutely lovely. Plant-Stained Papers can be used for journals, stationary, mixed media, framed and hung as wall art.
We will design beautiful layouts from a variety of plant materials including flowers, leaves, and edibles. We’ll discuss the variables in what makes plants stain beautiful and/or leave textured designs.

Ice Cream & Coffee Beans
In Ice Cream and Coffee Beans, we are going to take a journey into our memories and our infatuation with these two treats. It may appear to be a lesson in drawing and painting, but it is actually an excursion into choosing topics to portray, sketching with the intention of painting, and creating Art Journaling pages that give voice to your inner cravings… I mean musings! Yum!
In ten segments and over seven hours of video, we'll create three watercolor painted pages that bloom in color from sketches. Inspired by real life experiences, I guide you to creating compositions with faces, foregrounds, backgrounds, and additional elements. I even lead you into writing and journaling prompts that are generated by the art we do.
I look forward to this "sweet" journey with you!
Elements of Art
The Elements of Art include Line, Shape, Color, Value, Space, Form, and Texture.
These are the fundamental aspects of art; the foundation or building blocks of visual pieces.
This is an introduction class to get you on your way. In addition to introducing you to all seven elements, I will do demonstrations for each element and activities that combine multiple elements. I invite you to join along and then experiment further while adding your own individual style.
Learning about the Elements of Art, and the effects the principles of design have on a piece, elevates our own artistic literacy and encourages greater appreciation of works, as well as guide us along the way in our creative journeys.
We urge you to use supplies you have and like for adventuring into our art and writing classes. However, if you are just getting started or would like to expand your creative tool box, download the following lists to see what Rachelle uses for her classes and personal creating.
"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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
For several years I have been enjoying Rachelle’s special art! Her reuse of flowers and plants in her work gives it a fresh natural aspect and is also eco-friendly. 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. Meeting Rachelle and obtaining some of her art has brought me much happiness and tranquility.
-Gayle Forry ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
-Marie Crofoot ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
