About the Course
Embark on an artistic journey creating a handmade Memory / Keepsake Journal.
In this workshop you will start to work on your own one-of-a-kind Memory / Keepsake Journal, with original digital collages, handmade paper, coffee-dyed “aged” papers, old book pages ...
You choose your own theme for the digital collage pages (list available).
The journal will be ring-bound so you can add extra pages, move the pages around, add other elements, photos, etc...
A journal is designed for “cutting and pasting” in the old-fashioned way! Just let your imagination fly!
You will put your journal together and look at a variety of mixed media elements to give you ideas for what to put into your journal. You will then be able to continue decorating and filling your journal in your own time. A journal is something you build up over time with your thoughts and memories.
A handmade journal is a source of fun and enjoyment. Use it to keep your “memories” safe for special occasions (wedding, new baby, holidays…), use it as a notebook, a diary, a planner, a scrapbook, a place to keep memorabilia, lists and inspiration, for sketches, for those thoughts that pop into your head… You could start a family heirloom journal for future generations… the possibilities are endless!
Keep your “ephemera” scraps safe in the flaps, pockets, envelopes and “tuck spaces”.
Fill every available space with your words, thoughts, memories, photos... You cannot “spoil” a journal, you can only make it more beautiful by making it “yours”.
Enjoy the feel of different papers, textures and colours, the crispness of new paper and the smell of old paper.
By using old books and papers to make journals, we are helping them to be loved and treasured again.
In this digital world, it is so nice to return to the feel of paper between our fingers.
Long live paper!
