This year JournalFest will be October 26th - the 30th 2011. This will be my 3rd year teaching there and I am looking forward to it more than ever. I will be offering the workshops "Into the Crypt" and "The Ambrosia Journals".
New this year, there will be an informal gallery set up for themed journals that are either for sale or for show. My contribution to share will be an event journal. I did one for JournalFest 2009 (as seen here) to house all the goodies I gathered while there and it is one of my favorite journals so far.
I have a start on this one and so far it includes my comfirmation package, other paperwork, paper and button treats pertaining to this years theme of "Woodlands".
With deer being so abundant there, it's only fitting that their presence be in the promotion material and the journals.
My journal is still in the very beginning stages, but I wanted to share it so far. It is actually made of an old repurposed computer instructional manual. These metal ring binders lend themselves very well to this type of journal. I have cut down the width and the existing tabbed folders. The binder itself, I have stripped off the vinyl covering, beefed up the warped front cover (by sewing a piece of 1/4" plywood to the existing cover with vintage ribbon) and have collaged it with various papers.
