In this class, you will learn how to build a basic art journal from scratch, using card stock, canvas, and chipboard. I'll be offering a no sew and a couple of stitching options too.
After you learn how to make the book, I'll show you how to use the same techniques in some different styles and how to employ them to alter an existing book two different ways plus a couple of ways to redo a vintage photo album, and a transformation of an old cabinet card too.
As a bonus, once your books are assembled, I'll have some romantically inspired tips on creating closures, and some ideas for getting started on the interior pages too.
Included is a section about doodling, and some hand drawn doodle pages for you to print and add your own color to. Coloring a page like this is a good learning tool for creating a page of your own.
Plus, remember how much we loved to color as kids? It is every bit as fun as an adult!
All steps will be written out, plus illustrated with large photos, that also feature steps written onto the pictures. The instructions are complete and ready to read at your own pace, and are available for an unlimited time. I've had my blog on Typepad for over 7 years at this point, and have no plans to stop in the near future. This tutorial, along with the other classes I've taught will be available as long as I have a Typepad blog.
Each segment will be a seperate blog post. You can easily find what you are looking for by accessing the category list on the right hand side bar of the blog. Just click on the title on the side bar to take you to the post you want.
I've also added a lot of scanned images and text from my vintage collection for you to print and use to get started on your own books.
