Art Journal Every Day: Homemade Two-Step Stamps
Two Ways to Make a Coin Envelope Mini Book

This Time Next Week...

...I'll be in Canada!  In Toronto, to be exact.  I'll be teaching and...well, they're some of my last in-person classes.  At least for now.  I've decided to severely limit my in-person teaching in 2012.  I *love* teaching, but all the travel and prep is killing me.  So get it while it's hot!

I'll be teaching THREE classes at BizzyB up in Toronto, Canada!

All three classes show you very different techniques, so you're definitely going to have to take all of them!  C'mon who doesn't want to spend a weekend giggling and splashing around in paint?

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30:
Funky Art Cards (3 hour class)

AllCards-sm
We’ll make seven gorgeous cards in just three hours! Wow! You’ll learn simple techniques that lead to awesome artsy results. Julie will share some of her favorite techniques with you, including ideas for doodling, hand cutting, creating dimension, and using stencils. Even if you’re not a card maker, you’ll take home fun and easy techniques that you can use on your scrapbook pages or in your art journal.

Here's a better look at the cards:

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1:
Stamped & Stenciled Pocket Book
(6 hour class, plus a 1 hour lunch break)

JournalWithPen-sm
In this class Julie will show you how to make your own gorgeous “papers with personality” using stamps and stencils. The emphasis is on working in layers, understanding water solubility, color mixing, and creating pleasing compositions. Julie will also share how to make your own totally fabulous handmade tape. We will use that tape to bind a hand-bound-no- sew-pocket-filled journal! That’s right! You can make this gorgeous 6x9 book with absolutely no sewing! There are six front facing pockets that hold long cards for journaling. And one side facing memorabilia pocket in the front cover. And this book even opens up to allow for a row of photos or memorabilia to be pasted onto the backs of the pocket pages.

The first half of class will be spent creating our own unique papers for collage. We’ll be flinging paint, doodling, and creating patterns.
