Announcing a New Workshop in My Studio!
I'm so very pleased to announce my new Studio Space online and a brand new class just in time for the Holidays! Join me in my studio for "Christmas Stories." This class consists of over 8 hours of videos where I will teach you to make a treasured journal.
Although this book is designed as a “Christmas Book,” you will be able to use what you learn here to create any type of handmade journal either for a special occasion or for your own art!
In this unique class you will create a holiday keepsake to pass on to future generations. Tell your Christmas stories in this beautiful journal created from a vintage book or encyclopedia. You will learn to sketch and paint holiday figures using a combination of acrylic paint and spray inks. You will paint these figures in on pages that you have adorned with textured layers.
This enchanting journal is full of little surprises like pockets, envelopes, tags, textiles and even old book paper! There are over 50 handmade pages and you will learn the basics of bookbinding to hand-stitch them together. Finish your treasured journal with gilded edges and a decorative cover.
Preserve your holiday stories for years to come in this lovely old book, reminiscent of Christmases past!
If you are interested in the workshop, or other free tutorials, you will need to become a registered member of The Studio. Membership is free. On the Studio site, just look in the upper right hand corner to sign up. Once you are registered, you will then be able to pay for and access the Christmas Stories workshop.
I'm so happy to have you join me - we are going to create beautiful art together!
