Create your own unique faux leather journals with this easy and fun transfer technique! Your journal will look bold, and custom with your own unique twist. We'll be creating a traveler's notebook style journal cover and we will also create our own notebooks/pages to include inside the journals. (Choose between elastic style inserts or ring-bound. Both make great, re-usable options!) We'll make the pages for the journals in the beginning of class to include inside the journal so that you have some pages started before you leave class! We'll create at least two inserts using watercolor paper and an assortment of papers (or a variety of loose-leaf pages to include in a ring bound journal). In the end, you'll have a unique, faux leather-bound traveler's notebook style journal that you can use to take notes, make mixed media art journal spreads, or to use as you wish! If you have a particular image of your artwork, or a photograph you'd like to use, email it to me in advance and I'll print the image for you to use in class! (email: kinueko@kinueko.com)
