Please note that photos of any Workshop project as seen on the Website, Blog, Facebook, or other social media may vary from the actual project.  As well, project samples may also vary from actual projects.  While we do our best to provide students with materials needed to create projects as they’ve been depicted, these revisions may be required due to changes in product or availability of products from manufacturers, and are outside our control.  It may also become necessary for a Teacher to alter the design of the actual project to accommodate these changes.

“Halloween Junk Journal” Workshop with Gayl Staffler

Saturday, October 14, 2017           10:00am – 4:00pm            Cost: $50.00

Welcome to a full day of crafty Halloween fun!  In this Workshop, follow along with Gayl as she shares many new techniques that we guarantee you’re going to love!  She’ll provide paper that she’s prepared in advance for your book, but she’ll take the time to walk you through the dying process step-by-step that she used.  It really takes coffee dying to a new level!  You’ll arrange your pages in the order you want, then stitch and bind your book for a clean finish.  Once that’s done, you’ll spend time learning a variety of design techniques that make this book unique and special.  Techniques you learn in this Workshop will work well in all future projects you do!  Your finished book will be filled with several spots to add tags and embellishments, so if you have anything special you’d like to add, please bring it.  Make your reservations early to be sure to save your seat for what’s sure to be a fun Workshop!

Supplies to Bring:  Basic Craft Kit (BCK), including craft sheet; paper trimmer; scissors; ScorTape (3/8″ & 1/4”); your favorite wet adhesive that can be laid down as a thin bead (i.e., Fabri-Tac or Art Glitter Glue); paper piercer or awl; self-healing mat; and a ruler.  If you have any special ephemera you’d like to add, please bring it.  All other supplies and materials will be supplied.
