Course Description

Everyone needs a place to gather beauty just for beauty’s sake. The purpose of this artist’s journal is to be a gathering place for what captures YOUR attention. What if your creating felt easy and inviting? How would a few minutes a day here and there bring more creativity into your life? What if your making didn’t have to be for anyone else and didn’t need to be explained?

Gather magazine pages, vintage ephemera, different papers, your marks and stitchings to create a gorgeous and working artist’s journal. Using cardboard, plaster gauze and linen we will create a working junk journal that you will continue to create in and to make more and more beautiful with time.

This two hour live Zoom class was recorded and edited in high-definition video and the replay is now available for instant access. I am so excited to create with you in this way!
