Workshops

Hi! I don't have any pictures to post today. I taught three workshops over the weekend, and my camera's batteries were dead. !!! Friday evening was "Paper and Mixed Media Dolls" at Ink About It in Westford, MA. As usual, we had a blast. Everyone made a unique and highly expressive doll - and you'll have to take my word for it unless anybody can send me a photo of their doll. You just can't go wrong with paper dolls. Saturday's workshop was "Unbinding the Visual Journal", again, a wonderful group; Sunday's workshop was at The Scrapbook Cupboard in E. Bridgewater, MA. Mostly new faces there, except for the Jane Junkies, Marissa and Elyce, who came to all three workshops! We made boxes and then filled them with collage note cards. Bev, the owner, served us lunch and was altogether helpful and accommodating. I'll be teaching there again in September, as well as at Colorful Creations in Hyannis on the Cape. I promise to post again soon with pictures. Thanks to everybody who made the workshops so much fun!

  5. Hi: loved the visual journal class at Ink about It. we had a lot of fun and I was pleased to come home with a book I made. I think your style of collaging the signature papers first and then putting the book together is easier, then making the book and then trying to figure out what to do with it... Thanks Jane.

  7. Oh, I wish I could have attended your classes, Jane. The visual journal sound very enticing! Perhaps I can plan something later in the year? It is always wonderful to have a great group of people working on an exciting class project -yay!
