art journals video 1

click here to open in separate window art journals video 1 

this first video is an over view of the projects we will be creating in the art journal class. you can purchase the class here in my etsy shop jeaniesdesigns.

this does not show everything but will help you understand the projects. You will need 4 books get them from garage sales, thrift stores or your own all ready read hardback books. we will learn 4 different ways to use them and make them into our stories and art journals. you do NOT have to do all 4 styles....the book with binder mechanism costs more so if that is not in the budget make more of the other flexible and be frugal and use what you have in your stash.

so must have items to start with:
old books
cardstock--  white, cream, black or can also use scrapbook paper (but cardstock weight not                       the thin unless using for decoration)
modge podge type adhesive MATTE if possible

to get you started on the insides:
card stock, watercolor paper, scrapbook paper
pages cut from the books
paint-3 of your favorite colors plus white and/or cream
if you don't have paint but you do have water color crayons you can use these!!!
paper doileys

we WILL build on the insides and decorating the outsides as we go.
i will provide some printables of my art to help with the creating parts.

more supply videos to come....
