The contents of the box and some basic info was printed on this card that was affixed to the inner lid of the box.
I was mighty impressed with the instructions that were sent with the craft this month. They’re really thorough! This month my craft was making an art journal!
This is the blank journal that was provided. It’s kind of small, but the pages are nice and thick so you can use both sides of them to capture your creations. The idea is not so much to create masterpieces on every page, but to journal your feelings with artistic expressions instead of words. What a neat idea!
I love a package within a package… So much…
This little bundle of watercolor pencils and two brushes was wrapped inside!
These supplies were also included. This is a foam paintbrush, a glue stick, some gold paint, a bowl, and a nice drawing pen.
Another mystery packet!
Inside the packet were these little bits of paper for possible inclusion in my project, as well as a painting stencil.
These items were also included in the box this month. They’re not really supplies for the craft, but rather items that help to inspire mindful crafting. These three cards are from the Divine You Deck, and each one has a word and image on it for you to keep displayed as you work. The idea is to reflect on these concepts and allow them to manifest in your creative expression. The stone this month is carnelian, which is a great one for creativity.
This is my completed journal! I actually created this as a gift for my husband. I think more routine creative expression, unrestricted, would be really good for him, so I gave it to him in hopes that he will use it. He has also been worried about “things” lately, and I thought it was so neat that one of our paper treasures in the packet above included this quote I affixed to the lower right corner of the journal. It didn’t come out perfect, but he loved it!
I made a general nature abstraction with the watercolor pencils and then applied water with the brush to loosen and spread the color. I haven’t really worked a lot with watercolor pencils before, but I liked the way they work. After that dried, I used the stencil to paint over the design with the gold paint. The paint got a little messed up in this step, but I was going for a really abstract look, so it’s fine. When the paint dried, I cut out and affixed the quote.
Verdict: I really enjoyed my first experience with Divine You Crafts. I love the idea of conscious crafting, and I really appreciated the focus words and stone they provided. The project was fun, and it turned out well. I didn’t pay much attention to the directions, to be honest, but I’m glad they were provided and thorough. The only supplies I used from home were scissors, and this is the first time I felt like a craft box really supplied way more than enough. There was really enough here to make several journal covers, or at least to complete most of the pages of the journal. All of the supplies and accessories are difficult to place a value on, plus there is added value in the curation and addition of inspirational items. I think if you’re interested in this box, you would need to try it out and see if you feel that the value is there for you, personally. I think this box is more than worth the cost!
