Books | Art | Love

What do you get when you mix 15 enthusiastic women with a pile of old books, plenty of paper, scads of scraps and a container of glue sticks...you get art!

This past Tuesday was my recycled journal class...where I taught others how to take an old disheveled book and turn it into a personal, upcycled journal, ready to record one's musings, thoughts, desires and dreams...

Sponsored by the Shoreline/Lake Forest Park Arts Council, my workshop led 15 women on a 90 minute class of creativity...I provided the tools, the materials and the process...they provided the inspiration, the exploration and the visualization...

A quick synopsis...




































































































To read a more in-depth review of the class, visit the blog of Claudia Mazzie-Balheim, one of the class participants and quite the artist herself - specializing in recycled projects.

Thanks to all who attended...such a pleasure for me...fueled me for the rest of the week!

  5. What fun! Claudia's post certainly speaks highly of her time creating with you. I like the idea you had of putting kits together ahead of time. Off to rip up a book. Goodnight!

  7. Thanks again for a super evening, Amy! (Say, ever considered selling your kits on Etsy? You could sell them singly or in a "party pack." It would make for a really fun craft night.)
