Creating an Art Book of TreasuresName: Creating an Art Book of TreasuresDate: April 10, 2019Time: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM EDTWebsite: http://spectrumartgallery.orgEvent Description:
IF you love collecting from nature, twigs, feathers, pebbles, bits of nests……..
IF you are a hoarder of quirky charms, shiny embellishments, vintage buttons…..
IF you love collecting or writing sentiments, words of wisdom………
Then in this class you will artistically create a book filled with whimsy and sentiment that reflect YOU!
Using 3 to 5 mat boards you will decide on a theme then use collage papers and other imagery adhering them in layers onto each mat board which is the art page for the book. Each page is encased with mat medium or mod podge and finished with your collection of embellishments. When dry, mat board is turned over and the creative process is repeated. Holes are made to create the accordion style and the book is then tied creatively with ribbon and raffia.
