In this class you will learn how to repurpose bits and pieces you have collected and put them to beautiful use in your art journal. You will start by creating a simple no-sew art journal in a junk journal style. In each lesson you will experiment with creating pages with items that you have collected and repurposed from your real world, which means you will immediately be taking away the fear of a blank page or canvas and instead, learning to use and work with the layers of meaning already built into your pieces and pages.
In addition to learning this simple book making technique, you will begin filling out your journal and the course will touch on more ways to use pieces from your real life and other eclectic resources in your work. You will find that your pages project extra layers of meaning through symbolism and interaction that will give your pages more depth and connection.
This class is perfect for anyone who enjoys creating pages based on elements of their own reality, or anyone who struggles with allowing themselves to let go of perfection.
This class will help you to embrace and enjoy imperfection, your journal will exude character and individuality as you learn to think a bit more like a junk journaler – becoming more mindful and creative with what is available around you in your real life, and how to incorporate these unique pieces into your art.
