Come and create a small, No-Sew Journal that will be full of colorful pages, but fit snuggly into your hand. We will begin by randomly dropping in puddles and splashes of watercolor on mixed media paper to create a subtle backgrounds for future art. We will attach the pages to each other to make a book block, followed by the cover and spine. Using text pages of foreign language, math pages, music, tissue, etc., we will create a motherboard and collage it to a sheet of the mixed media paper. Then it will be painted… florals, patterns, dimensional lines… anything goes. After putting our book together, we can begin the process of decorating the inside. This is a wonderful size to carry around with you so you can challenge yourself do a bit of art anytime!
The instructor will provide: Canson Mixed Media 9 X 12 paper, background text papers, black and white paint, bookbinding glue, and drawing inspirational ideas.
