Homework summary: finish preparing your book by removing pages and adding the support to your binding. In a few days, my third video will arrive in your inbox and we can take the last steps we need to before we start creating!

Please take note of the materials list for our next workshop: paintbrush, water, towel, old credit card (or similarly shaped object), palette knife, gel medium matte and/or gesso, wax paper, heavy books


Don’t hesitate to ask me your questions in the comments below. I’d also love to see evidence of your art in progress! Take a few photos and share them on Instagram and tag me @ArtistStrong. Or, share them in the FB group.

    I’m using a little book of friendship poems that I recently picked up at a second hand shop. I bought it with the idea of using it as an altered book but have never done one before. This workshop is just what I need to get started. Didn’t realize that pages needed to be removed but makes perfect sense! Looking forward to the rest of the workshop!!

      Yay Traycee! Your book sounds lovely and a great substrate for the rest of your art. I hope you enjoy the remaining workshops and please ask away if you have any questions!
