This year as part of Creative Art’n’Soul Journaling, I’m very excited to be sharing my processes and techniques for making beautiful journals and art books as a way to record and remember the things in our lives that are precious to us. I’ve started this year with The Book of Winter Shadows where I share my process for making themed journals that tell a story.
In this 3-part video workshop, learn how to make a themed journal that tells a story. Create your own Book of Winter Shadows using your own images and photos as a way to tell the story of winter and all the shadows that this season brings. Winter can be applied not only to the season of nature, but also to our own wintery feelings – a time when we look deep within to where our own internal shadows lie. Learning to express those feelings through art and journaling often has a healing effect, as the heavy energies of those shadows are lifted from our soul and transformed onto the pages of our journal.
This video workshop is presented in three parts:
In part one we begin the journal by learning how to prepare and paint the pages and fabric for the cover, as well as a creative method for altering images by overpainting.
In part two, I share my process for gathering inspiration, and developing a visual language as a way to tell your story on the pages of your journal.
In part three learn how to assemble your journal using a creative process for attaching signatures to the spine, as well as a simple way of making non-solder bezels that be used as labels for your journals.
