Precious You Friday Oct 8th 10-3 $70 after Sept 24th $80
In class you will create the most unique journal designed to hold images,
symbols, words and quotations that hold special meaning to you. This
journal is begging to be touched and treasured. We will explore why these

unlike any journal you have ever done before. It is a triptych book WITHIN
a book. Beads are along the spine of the book and along the spine of the

techniques but you will learn to lay out the images, mixed media and words
