This journal is the ultimate in play. I'm always looking for new ways to revitalize favorite techniques. Think lush layers of paint, paper, tape, stencils, pen work and more all bound into little bundles of creativity.

We'll start the class by creating rich layers of painted pages. We've only just begun as we step back, revisit our pages and start to think about how we can assemble them into books. Before the tearing and the binding begin, we'll go through and collage our pages (yes, I will show you how to collage them so that when you fold and assemble them you will have pages ready for you to work on.)

After we've finished assembling the journals, you'll step back again and learn techniques for on the go or simple art journaling with minimal supplies.

Supply list tjo bring to class:
an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, permanent black ink pad (only if you have one), a container for your paint water, 1 to 2" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
