$ 160  

Create your own unique leather journal covers with this easy and fun transfer technique! The cover will look fun, and custom with your own unique twist. We'll be creating a traveler's notebook style journal cover which we will also create our own notebooks to include inside the journals. The collage papers we'll make 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: one using watercolor paper and the other using an assortment of papers. In the end, you'll have a unique, 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.

Materials Fee $20 paid at beginning of class includes:
Collage paper pack full of unique assortment of handmade, scrapbook, recycled, vintage papers, leather, elastic cord, assorted transfer images to choose from, watercolor paper, button (for alternate closure style)

Use of shared materials: iron, mini ironing board, acrylic paint, spray ink, stencils, mark-making tools, embellishments,
Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

*basic kit: scissors, glue stick, pencil, ruler
*self healing cutting mat

Optional items: *bring an iron and mini ironing board if you're local!
*if you'd like to transfer your own image, make sure to print it out onto t-shirt transfer paper for dark shirts (reverse if it has words on it). But I will have plenty to choose from!
