  1. Is there a particular journal you would recommend that can handle watercolor well? I just found your blog and love it! I am inspired to start trying new things.

    1. I would encourage you to try! Just remember to look at your journal as a workbook instead of a book of art. Write down all you notice and then attempt to draw what you see. Label the details. When you do your best to draw what you see, you notice so much more. Blind contour drawing is a great way to start if you feel intimidated. There is a place here to sign up for a 15-day challenge…this would be really helpful as well!

    2. Hi ET,

      I’m in the same boat. When I nature journal I usually just think of it as a mindfulness/writing exercise. I jot down the cool things I notice. That act of focusing on nature gives me a real calm after the session.

  2. Hello!
    I’ve noticed a lot of your pages have art in them. If a person is not so good/doesn’t want to do art, what ideas can you give them?

    1. Thanks for stopping by! A Nature Journal is also great for making “collections” of items you find in nature, leaf rubbings, or even just describing what you see around you. But I really encourage you to try to draw what you see, even if it’s a rough sketch. The more you practice, the better you’ll get.

  3. This nature club sounds like a perfect fit for myself and granddaughters! However, I left Facebook last year. Is there another way to participate?

    1. Hi! Team Lily & Thistle here 🙂 Our Nature’s Art Club curriculum is available on the Teachable platform. We have an extra bonus of a private Facebook community, but it’s not needed to actually do anything in the program – it’s just meant as a place to connect with others who are also using the program. All of the material is included in the online platform on Teachable. You can find out more info here about the Nature’s Art Club:
