Here is a little sneak peek of what I am working on, "The Twirly Swirly Journals" and the Workshop to make them.
As the name implies, these journals are full of just about anything you can imagine that swirls and twirls. Elegant, a little bit girly, but above all, unusual and slightly quirky, this series of Journals will get your head spinning with more and more ideas of how you can add a new dimension to your journaling. We’ll start with a basic pre-made hard bound book construction, collage the cover, sew in the pages with a simple binding method, work with lots of fun twirls and swirls by adding fold out pages, quotes, text and other fun oddities using provided collage sheets. I’ll be bringing lots of swirly rubber stamps, templates and stencils to work with and to top it all off we’ll add a plethora of beads, trinkets and baubles that dangle from the spine to finish off this delightful journal. Already scheduled ... teaching this workshop in May 2011 at Whispering Woodlands in beautiful Verona, Wisconsin! Hope you’ll join us!
