It's the best of both worlds: beeswax collage and book making! We'll explore how to create a dimensional, layered & textured beeswax collage canvas cover using a variety of techniques & media. We'll build up the collage with color, ephemera & lightweight collage items using beeswax to adhere our items, create texture & seal the cover artwork. Then we'll bind our journal using watercolor paper, recycled silk sari ribbon & textured paper using an easy, new-sew technique. The pages will also be adorned with bits & bobs, fabric, trim and trim to add texture & color. The inside papers can be left blank or splashed with color, drips & a few "quick start" ideas to get our pages going!
