Learn a simple technique for using up all those paper scraps and JUNK you have on your table or squirreled away. We will sew signatures and add a cover to create a base for decorating. Learn how to make pockets, flip pages and add texture using paper bags, maps, tags, scrap papers, lace, stamping, paint and stencils. We will dye some items with tea and coffee to give an aged quality. You can choose between two class kits unique to this class: a sweet, soft colored journal or a more vibrant eclectic style. Written instructions provided. Supplies included in this class: a complete kit to make a junk journal and decorate with ephemera, charms, lace bits, tags, envelopes, paper tape and stamped images. Tools supplies for use in class: stencils, dabbers, ink pads, texture stamps, waterbins, paints, awls, needles, thread, scissors, scrap paper and a craft mat.
