Ever wonder about mark-making? Afraid to try it for fear that you’ll lose that awesome painting or that fantastic journal spread? Karen and Esther will be showing different ways to add marks to your artwork.
Esther will be doing demos only, as her techniques are pretty messy. She plans to bring a big box to do some demos inside (to catch overspray). No materials or supplies from members are needed for this portion.
Karen’s take on mark-making, while similar to Esther’s, will be a bit different. She will be leading members in various exercises to find and design marks that are meaningful to you. We will be working with just white and black paper and mediums. Gold can also be added if you wish.
Check your email for more details and a supply list.
Annie will be demonstrating a one-page decorative exercise that would then be torn down to make a smaller book. It would go well after the lesson in making marks.
You will create a Traveler’s Notebook (TN), which you can use as a planner, sketchbook, journal, art journal, scrapbook, study guide, meal planner, recipe book, and so much more

Don’t leave home without your bookbinding kit! Remember that many of our meetings are “hands-on” and the best way to learn new techniques is to try them yourself!
