Lately, I've been obsessed with creating art journals. I can't get enough of making books. My Friday afternoon class at Birdsong will simply just have to be about how to make a book from scratch. We will create the covers, add signatures of pages, and decorate the exterior, all using "The Good Stuff".
Pictures to come, soon.
On Saturday afternoon, I'll provide a packet of great old papers, pictures, and embellishments to start in on making some pages. You will get tips and ideas on using your hand made book, as well as "Good Stuff" to finish it with. Vintage wallpaper and millinery blooms are definitely going to be in the kit, as well as photos, pictures, old text, ribbons, lace, rhinestones, all my faves- YUM!
Along with the class at Birdsong, all guests will get my online class, "Creating an Art Journal" in case they would like some further inspiration once they get home.
Beth Leintz will chime in with some of her favorite journalling how-to's also. She will join me in tag-team teaching. I'm lucky to have such talented friends willing to share their skills.
But wait, that isn't all! We also get to learn some decorative handwriting skills from Hope! These two experts are going to be part of the last class of the day, when we delve into filling up the books we made.
Class projects from Andrea and Lori will be announced soon. These two both have a special touch when creating beauty. Whatever they are making with us that weekend, is sure to be something spectacular.
And I am looking forward to receiving my kits from them too!
