Project Description

For your class project, I would love you to create your own journal from either a vintage book or any hardcover book.

You can share your process in stages or upload a photo of your finished book.

I really, really love to see the work of my students, so please be brave and share your thoughts, ideas and your handmade journal with us.

If you have any questions concerning this class, please get in touch with me by starting a discussion, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

A downloadable PDF will give you a list of all the tools and materials you might need for this class.

Thanks again for taking my class, I really hope you enjoyed it!
