Three Small Books

$ 185  


When I started art journaling, there were very few pre-made journals to be found. So, we made our own! We made books and enjoyed filling them with art. Come to this class and learn three of my favorite small book constructions, many which require no sewing or only simple sewing. We’ll fold, paste, and sew our way into book heaven. We’ll be throwing some painty mixed-media fun into the books, too.

Instructor will provide:

stencils for sharing
collage fodder for sharing
waxed cord
bookbinding needles

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Your art journal
9x12 Watercolor or mixed media paper pad, student grade is fine (I like Cason XL). We need lots of paper to play on!
Acrylic gesso
Acrylic paints
Marking tools like Scribble Sticks, Stabilo All pencils, etc.
Spray bottle with water
Paint brushes
Wipes/paper towels/water container to wash brushes
Gel medium
Gel plate, any size should work fine.
Your favorite stencils.
Paper trimmer
Bone folder

OPTIONAL One or two small canvases or wood panels, if you want to create on a substrate other than paper. Or, you can skip the canvases/panels and just work on paper. Up to you.
Plain collage paper tissue or deli paper
