Grungy Spell Book & Pages

Dimanche 29 :

Atelier double qui vous permettra de réaliser votre propre Art Journal. La matinée commencera par la création de la couverture et l'après-midi, vous commencerez les premières pages.

Have you ever thought about having your own, intimate space which will be just for you – without pressure, without fear and competition? Maybe yo feel you want to have more fun, to try new things and play with techniques... or you need a place for your personal notes, sketches, memos? Or maybe you are an idea collector? All this and more you can put in your Art Journal! How cool is this?

Journals are best friends of creative people: they love experiments and new techniques, they are good listeners and always have time for you. You can take them wherever you go. Journals are never in bad mood – and they never say that your project is not good enough or not creative. Working in journal is fun, easy... and liberating. There are no strict rules, no boundaries, just freedom. All the meanings and the ideas are taken straight from the heart: you can realize all the crazy plans simply because it is YOUR Journal and you create just for yourself.

"Grungy Spell Book"
Mixed media class (with creating heavy texture, spraying, shading, using gels, metallic paints...and more!)

Journals are not only about pages – altering the cover of the book is an important part of the creative process, making the frame, closing (or opening?) the composition. Cover should reflect the owners emotions and personality as well as the book's content – which is a great reason to try some inspiring techniques and create something unique, magical and 100% fun.

During this class I'll tell you about my ideas for journaling, and share my ideas how to alter a raw journal to get appealing and durable mixed media cover based on a bunch of my favorite techniques such as creating texture with gels and stencils, grungy embellishments and found objects, painting and spraying. I'll show you different effect you can get using media such as pigments, acrylic paint and common soft pencils together with multipurpose glues or varnish.

After the class you will have your own art journal which will reflect your taste and a big dose of inspiration: I'll do my best to share my experience, give tips and I'll try to convince you to leave traditional, conventional thinking and go more bold and artsy. It is possible you will be surprised what you can do with medias and tools which you already have in your kit or at home!

complementary class:

"Spell Book Pages"
Mixed-media techniques for journalers and scrapbookers!

During this full-lenght class I'll share with you some of my journal projects and a bunch of my favorite techniques based on using masks, stamps, embossing and layering.
Together we will create different texturized background gathering information about using such mediums as heavy gel, gesso, pigments, sprays and embossing powder. We will focus on techniques useful both for journalers and scrapbookers tips and non-conventional ideas such as using thread or tea builiding 3 double, technique-packed pages- all with a touch of grungy, artsy style.
This class is one big creative, messy fun! You may be surprised what you can do with the supplies you probably already know... or you never thought about before... Let yourself play and think outside the box – why not?
