From Memory to Journal Pages
One of the questions that I’m often asked is do I use themes? How do I start a page? What do I create the page about? In this workshop, you will learn how to translate every day moments into unique to you art journal pages.
No experience required. Bring a short handwritten list of favorite experiences, moments and memories. You will learn how to reflect these fragments of life in the form of image, color, shapes, line and text onto your pages. Create rich and deeply personal pages that are true to your own voice while learning new techniques and ideas.
Please note that we will begin the class by making a journal from scratch.
Supply List: a short list (see above), an 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.)
