$ 185  

Whether you’re getting ready to embark on a new journey, have just returned from one and want to chronicle your adventures, or you’re an armchair traveler with many dream destinations, this workshop is for you.

This course was inspired by my return to Paris after nearly 40 years since my first visit as a young woman. I wanted to soak up every little morsel, or capturer chaque moment. In this workshop, we will create a unique journal that will embody what we love about travel, capture moments from a recent trip, or become a beautiful wish list for destinations yet to be visited.

Techniques taught in this workshop:

Rusting papers, fabrics, pages
Stencil design
Image transfers
Collaging to express your wanderlust
Adding layers with textiles, stitching, mark-making, ephemera, and paper
