Create a unique handmade book with a twist: every page has a window that allows you to see through to the adjacent pages. The book begins with a visit to the Paper Piles to choose the paper for your covers and pages. Next you will move on to the Die Supply, where you will select the dies you will use to cut your covers, pages and windows. Once assembled, it will be time to collage your covers using paper, ephemera, and light-weight embellishments. A touch of splatter will finish off the look. Finally, you will learn a Japanese stab binding technique to bind your book together.
I am a mixed media artist, instructor, author and designer from New York City. My artwork has been exhibited in multiple exhibitions and can be found in numerous books and national magazines. I am the voice behind The Pulse, a series of international, collaborative projects that are the basis for my books “The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed” and “The Mixed-Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams From Over 40 Amazing Artists”, both released by North Light Books. I am the artist behind two workshop DVDs: Easy Mixed Media Surface Techniques and Easy Mixed Media Techniques for the Art Journal. I am an instructor at Pratt Institute in NYC and my live workshops have been held throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia and the UK.
