I'm Texas bound and so excited about it!
It's thrilling to have another opportunity to teach a creatologie workshop...this one on June 13th... at Big Mouth Scrappers in Forney, TX. Seeing good friends again, spending time creating, chatting and eating and of course, the fabulous shopping experience at Big Mouth Scrappers are all part of why I always look forward to going back.
This time, I'll be teaching a hand made book project called "Denim, Burlap and Old Lace". It's a generic album/journal and given the title and Texas...may I just say, totally "fittin"?
The book itself is an idea I put together...I think you'll love the watercolor paper and cardstock interior, the hand stitching and the burlap binding, and the sturdy canvas covers...so fun and so easy to make again.
And then there's the cover...always my favorite thing to put together. It's dimensional, unique and certainly makes a statement...great elements that go into making an awesome handmade book.
Be prepared to make some handmade flowers, some cool collage pages with papers and fabrics and even a painted flower on canvas...no previous painting experience required. I'll also be teaching a fun metal technique that has lots of crossover potential.
I've also allowed for some open pages so that you can add your photos and stories.
I've gotten so much positive feedback from the Facebook peeks...and thanks to those who commented or emailed me. I really think that you'll love putting this one together...I know I did. And the colors in the project are really cool together...and trendy too!
Spaces for the workshop are limited so you'll want to sign up right away...seriously. It seems like my workshops there fill up really fast...and because the June 20th workshop at my home (with the same project) is totally sold out, the Texas workshop is the only opportunity to create this project in a classroom setting.
I'm hearing that lunch will be provided and, if you know Cynthia, you know that there will be lots of food and it will be amazing!
Get all of the details when you call the store to sign up...469-728-7237.
If you're local and want to see the project, I did send a sample over to the store.
Looking forward to seeing you in June!
From my studio to yours,
