I’ve got a beautiful project ready for our first class in our new location. We’ll be making an art journal with a real vintage book cover.
Lot’s of layers of creamy pale papers and book pages. There’s lot’s of inking and sewing. We’re using vintage images from Graphic Fairy
and adding detail with buttons and trim and handcrafted flowers and embellishments.
So far there’s 11 interior pages. Some are sewn….some have pockets, some have tags. We’re using shabby chic inspired patterns and colors and French typography. The variety of page sizes and thickness gives this book a chunky look with lot’s of texture. I’ll be fine tuning the details for the interior pages in the next few days. Time permitting we may be able to add additional sewn book pages.
We’ll be creating many embellishments in the class so be ready to roll up your sleeves and get ready to work. You will not want to get your manicure before this class lol.
I’ll provide all the materials and tools and adhesives. If you have a favorite pair of scissors….you’re welcome to bring them to use…otherwise we’ve got you covered. This class begins promptly at 6 pm Tuesday June 19th. We need everyone to be on time as there’s so much involved in completing this project. There’s will be a small break with snack so you can get up and stretch your legs a bit. Wear comfortable clothes…as you will be getting up a lot to use the sewing machine…and paper cutters.
I’m seating only 4 in this class since it has soooo many steps. We have 2 seats already reserved. If I have enough feedback I will schedule an additional seating. If you would like to view the rest of this book and leave a deposit for your seat…please visit me in the shop. Seats are first come first serve and a deposit of half up front is required. This is a 3 hour class and will be $40 for all materials, snack and instruction. Just a reminder…there are only 2 seats available for the June 19th class.
