Don't Judge a Book by its Cover

Carolyn Dube
One Day Workshop

Cloaked inside this ordinary looking book is a journal of creative play. Feel the excitement and experience the freedom of play as a hard back book is transformed into a lay flat journal.

During our day together you’ll be creating shimmering stucco effects, colorizing vintage photos, using StencilGirl stencils mixed media style, marbleizing papers, and more. Along with the techniques broken down step-by-step, you’ll also know how to open up to the moment, and ride the waves of color and play.

No sewing. No measuring. No precision needed. This is a let loose and play type of journal. Go wild with my suitcases of Marabu supplies, try different things, and harness the color wheel to give you the looks you love. As I’m sharing techniques, I’m also sharing the whys so you can apply the fun to any mixed media art play.

All you need to bring is a 6-7 of your favorite colors of acrylic paint, a craft knife & cutting mat, paper trimmer (or share mine), a pencil, scissors, glue stick, gel medium, paints brushes of various sizes, and an apron. All the rest is included so come prepared to immerse yourself in the freedom of play!

Kit includes: Everything you need for converting a book to a journal including the book, vintage photos, ephemera, paper, use of stencils, mixed media tools, gesso, spray inks, art crayons, mousse, marbling supplies and more.
