Except for an occasional addition to my series, I won't be posting very often for awhile.
Number 16 in my Series
First Day Create We painted our own large papers with ink and watercolor, cut them into page sizes and bound them into a journal with twine and beads. I had some problems with the binding! We also did woven fronts with paper pieces or ribbons. We didn't have time to embellish the inside, but I show some of my painted pages.
Evening Class on Vintage Alphabets
We learned about identifying the characteristics of different alphabets, traced some, then did some freehand.
Second Day Create. We worked on a 12" x 9" store bought journal. We were to gesso the front cover and several inside pages and the back cover. However, the gesso took forever to dry, so we didn't get very far for a 6 hour class. Front and Back Covers and the start of one inside page.

Third Day Create. We did two mini journals. One accordion pleated, and one bound. I had trouble with that again because I made the bound journal too tight and it can't close with the embellishments in it!
First is the Front Cover, then some embellished pages using my own stash, then a page shown before embellishment. The little book is only 2 inches square when closed(if you can get it closed)! All pictures on this post may be clicked on to enlarge.
Create Day 4. My abstract painting class in acrylics with Mary Beth Shaw. Four Paintings.
Finally, the END! Thank you for looking!
