[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

This delightful tome fits wonderfully in the hand or in the pocket for those walks in the Highlands. Using beautiful papers, rich fabrics and silk ribbons we will create our books. Stonehenge paper will be torn down to size to give soft edges to our pages. Images of the Highlands will be provided to collage and enhance your pages as well as paint. Antique Mother of Pearl buttons will be provided for closure on your book, The supplies you need are few as the essentials are provided. In the morning we will focus on crafting our books allowing us the afternoon to collage and embellish. We will explore pop outs and cut outs on our pages as well.

$15.00 kit fee payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
for the papers, pre-cut boards, antique button and use of silk ribbons, paints, matte ModPodge and images.

Student need to bring:
scissors for cutting out images, favorite adhesive (I will have ModPodge and some glue sticks), glue/paint brush, pencil, ruler and an awl with a cushion (like a soft mouse pad or thick fun foam)
