new book arts workshop starts soon!

and yes, I have been busy writing lessons! 
This is a peek into one of my page spreads for my Altered Book lessons -
part of: Artful Pages - 4 Artists 4 Ways which begins on February 20th.

I have been writing & writing and very soon, I will be busy teaching a collaborative book arts class, online with 3 other wonderful artists: 
Mary Green, Hope Wallace Karney and Lisa McIlvain. We will be covering different aspects of book arts -Vintage Gluebooks, Art Journaling, Altered Fabric Pages and Altered Books. These new lessons will unfold February 20th - March 18th, with one artist teaching each week, sharing 3 lessons that week. As part of the class there will also be a Flickr group for the students. There you can share the art you create as you move through all the lessons. Your instructors and fellow classmates can comment on it, and in my experience, the flickr group is a friendly, caring and nurturing environment where you can definitely feel safe to share your art. I've always learned a lot and been inspired in the other classes I took that were organized this same way by Mary Green of Green Paper. (She's organizing this new workshop too!) The 4 artists 4 ways password protected blog where the lessons are posted, will stay open indefinitely - giving you plenty of time to work on the lessons at your own pace. You can actually join the class at anytime! The cost is only $40 for 12 fabulous lessons taught by 4 different artists. Go to the Artful pages: 4 Artists 4 Ways blog to learn more about what we will be offering and to sign up. It is only a few more weeks till we begin!

I can't wait to share what I've been making with you -
and how I did it, of course! : ^ )

I also can't wait to read Mary, Hope and Lisa's lessons & learn new things -this will be a great class. I hope to see you there, I'd love to have your support! There are already a whole bunch of students signed up and in the Flickr group. Thank you so much!
