The Odyssey Journal
Who said that you could only make a book using expensive supplies? This is the ultimate class in recycling and creativity! We’ll turn trash into a new journal with fun fold out pages.
After we’ve assembled our book, we’ll journey through a plethora of new techniques in painting, collage and art journaling. Think you’ve seen it all? Eager to get messy and learn something new?
Let’s spend all day on our own unique voyage through the world of paint, paper and creative exploration.
Supply list: catalogs with thick pages and anything with thick/heavy paper that you would want to use as a journal (think old mailers, college brochures, nice catalogs and more. Some folks like to bring their own stash to use up. If you don’t have anything, please don’t worry as I will have things for you to use.
apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, any favorite mark making tools (I will have some to share) a container for your paint water, your favorite brushes to paint and glue with, a small container to clean your brushes (an old jar, etc…), a few of your favorite glue sticks (trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don’t want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
