Since it's a journal, I decided to add some "journaling" which I have never done before. Of course, leave it to me to decide to teach a class about something I've never tried. But I think I worked out the basics on what to do in which order for a balanced effect. How to fix mistakes (they happen, for sure!) and some other tidbits of advice.
I'm printing out some prompts for students to use, and will have some basic guidelines to help get them going too.
I've got lots of old Valentines,
We will build a book from scratch from old papers in neutral tones, then fill it up with lots of rosy toned hearts and flowers.
The cover will be decorated similar to an old fashioned box of chocolates, with a flocked heart, ruffles, and a millinery rose.
We'll add love notes, and envelopes to save romantic souvenirs from our sweeties. In my own book, I'm making places for photos too. All students can email pictures to me, and I will size, edit and print them for the books and have the pictures ready when everyone arrives.
The class will be all day, at my studio in Lawrence on Saturday, Feb.2nd.
Lunch and luscious chocolate treats are, of course, included!
Cost is $100 and covers everything you will need from cover to cover.
And we will be using The Good Stuff to make this book!
Its a small, intimate class, and we should be able to get the book completed that day. But remember, with a project like this, they sometimes never end! You will want to continue adding adornments and doodlies after you leave, too.
