This free and very fun class will teach you how to create a bound journal that lies flat with fold-out pages using inexpensive materials and, even better- paper that is free!
Here's a look at the type of journal we'll be making:
This particular example is very slim in thickness. You will be able to make your journal as thick or thin as you like. The number of folios (paper folded in half to form pages are called folios) and the number of signatures (folios either singly or stacked together along the crease, form a signature) to suit your needs and preferences. The book will lie flat for easy use regardless of thickness.
This project combines several techniques from my fourth book,Creative Wildfire. Examples of the book and the flaps can be see on pages 6, 30, 46, and 47. The page painting technique can be found beginning on page 32, and the binding technique can be found beginning on page 20.
I want to stress that YOU DO NOT NEED THE BOOK to take class, get the most out of the class, understand the class, enjoy the class. I have all the techniques videotaped for you. If you do have the book, you may find making notes in the book margins helpful for future reference.
First, let me show you the Free Paper we'll be using:
