$ 185  

I adore altered books, they take me back to my roots of art journaling in the early 2000s. In this class, we'll alter a book and add interactive elements--pop-outs, tip-ins, explosions, and more! Our books will explode with color and visual interest.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

A book to alter
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 and stamps.
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

Instructor will provide:
stencils for sharing
stamps for sharing
collage fodder for sharing
