Sophie DeCort
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday, March 18

[back to quicklinks]
$ 160  

Do you like a journal in your handbag in which you can easily add or remove pages ? Well this is the one ! In this workshop you will create your very own bullet journal / planner / notebook.
Step by step I will guide you to build your own book cover with your hand painted book cloth. We will prepare pockets inside the journal covers to hold all those special collage fodders to use later on for journaling on our pages. I will bring die cutting plates for you to prepare the pages for your bujo journal but you can very well prepare the pages yourself by cutting or tearing them to the format of your journal.
At the end of the day you will have your very own planner ready to be adjusted to your needs.

Materials Fee $15 paid at beginning of class includes:

Binding rings, collage papers, my favourite handpainted papers, markmaking tools, book boards, pockets

I will have plenty of my own tools to share (die cutting machine and dies - stencils – paints – puncher – cropadile - sewing machine – chocolate (am Belgian !) )
