Journal Bound Workshop is Live...

Showcase your gathered mail art stash within two uniquely styled and bound journals. Get those mailed treasures out of your bins and into an artful display - journal style.

Together we will travel a step by step approach to creating a colorful grungy cover in my signature messy style. Then we will bind our art-filled journals using a simple and creative system that once quickly learned can be used repeatedly to create handmade art journals from here forward.

Don’t have a mail art collection? I will demonstrate an alternative using found papers. Beginners are welcome and encouraged in this workshop as each process is fully demonstrated to accommodate all skill levels. I even include downloads of my designs for your use.

So many possibilities, so much creativity. Pack your bags, we are Journal Bound!

See more details, including photos and the supplies list HERE!

 

 

 

For details on how to register for my on-line workshops see details HERE!

 

Thanks to the following amazing ladies for the beautiful mail art that I have received and saved for such a time as this!!!  Sandi Keene, Sophie DeCorte, Samantha Kira Harding, Lynn Scott, Renee Plains, Susan Gallitto, Rae Missigman, Kristin Peterson, Jane Bain and Coral Lee.

NOTE: The mail art pieces used in this class are not created in the class. They are part of my stash and used along with other bits and pieces.

The Documented Life Project - 5/24 (Week 22)...

The Documented Life Project

May 24, 2014 - Week 22 Challenge - Draw, paint or sketch a house.

Visit the Art to the 5th blog for more inspiration. 

 

For this week's challenge I chose to work on a file folder flap instead of a full piece of paper.  I cut my houses from vintage handwritten letters.  I added layers of paint, doodles and marks.  I thought the fortune was perfect for this challenge.

The Documented Life Project - 5/10 (Week 20)...

The Documented Life Project

May 10, 2014 - Week 20 Challenge - Use a rubber stamp in a new way.

Visit the Art to the 5th blog for more inspiration. 

Supplies: Handmade arrow stamp by Sandi Keene; Scratched Chevron rubber stamp by me; Art Pops™ Mixed Media Circle Stickers and Sticker Tape; Golden Paynes Gray acrylic paint; Signo Uni-Ball Gel Pen White; 3M Nexcare Gentle Paper Tape; washi tape; pencil, Ohto Fude Ball black pen and UHU Glue Stick.

This was quite a challenge as there really isn't anything new under the sun!  I made stamped faux washi tape with some medical paper tape. Directions: 1. Place tape on an acylic block. 2. Add a light coat of acrylic paint to a rubber stamp and imprint onto paper tape. 3. Let dry. 4. Peel off of the acylic block and place on page.
