email me with questions(

This is everyones favorite class. You will love what you learn and the book that you leave with.
I think that this is a great beginner through advanced class.

It is packed with great techniques including:
Understanding the differences in papers and acrylic mediums and which mediums to use when.Great ways to include vintage linens and keepsakes that you have been hanging onto.
Basic construction of a handmade book.
Sewing on nontraditional surfaces.
Making and painting signatures/book pages.Collage methods to create beautiful book pages.
how to utilize papers, fibers, fabrics &/or keepsake items to construct a waterproof book cover
machine and hand-stitching techniques to attach signatures in to the book
embellishing the front cover of the book to make it uniquely yours.
How to make the outside of your book waterproof and extremely durable.

I send you home with a lot in information in written form so that you will have something to refer to later and I am always available via phone or email to help you should you need it.

We all need to nuture our creative spirits - this class is a fantastic way to do just that!
