Create your own journal from bits and pieces. Scrap papers, envelopes, unfinished pieces of artwork, greeting cards, scrapbook paper, watercolor paper, you name it...this is the journal for you to use it all up.
Layering is the focus of this workshop. We start two spreads differently using a variety of techniques differently each time and adjusting the order of operation we end up with two distinctly different looks.
Learn several techniques to fill your pages with layers, colors, texture, words, imagery, etc. We finish with a reductive painting process and a mini lesson in adding hand lettering to your finished work.
This workshop features the following: Japanese Stab Binding, Long Stitch and a modified Pamphlet Stitch. You will finish class with 3 books ready to use, totally customizable with your selected paper(s).
Learn how to "draw your letters" as you take your own writing (no matter how you feel about it) and turn your letters into art. You will be able to design for cards or art journal pages by the end of this session.
Make a personal mark on your artwork. You will learn how to cut and form your own unique mark making tools from simple and easy to find materials. Minimal specialized tools are needed for maximum impact.
