This is a new workshop from Laura this year and we are bringing it back for a third time due to popular demand!
The basic manila file folder has reached new heights in mixed media art. Spend the day with Laura on an artful journey of ultimate transformation. Learn to make a unique tall book journal from several file folders. Laura will also explore a few other creative uses for file folders along the way. Backgrounds will be colored using multiple layers of paint, gesso, and stencils. Then the fun begins! We will do pockets, folds, flips, and tip-ins, and hidden places for messages. Raid your stash and bring with you any notes, postcards, tickets, quotes, (Laura added a few ATC’s in her sample), and other items you have saved for just this book. You could also choose a theme or make it as a gift for a special person. We will also have some paper and ephemera to share. Your Tall Tale Journal will be sewn together with a very easy basic pamphlet stitch. This is one book you will want to make again.
