Art Journaling Meetup

At our fourth Friday meetups, everyone works at their own pace, on whatever project they wish. Bring your own art journal, gluebook, or altered book project and supplies. These sessions are very relaxed, and a good time to share techniques or ask questions.

Not sure about gluebooks or art journals? Check our discussion area for links to how-to lessons and videos to help you get started.

    Hi Cathy & Linda,
    I am not sure if I can make it today, not feeling very well. I think the weather is affecting my leg. I will post again if I decide not to go.

    Update on this Friday -- The room where you guys usually meet WILL be in use, so I'll put you out front. Please let me know how many are planning to attend so I can make sure to have enough tables set up.


    Also, I don't normally promote anything here, but I think the Zentangle classes that are going on this weekend would be a great opportunity for our Altered Art groups. Beckah is incorporating fabric, Zentangle tiles, mica, metal and Latka paper, and will be using all kinds of fun inks and pens and stamps. The techniques you learn can be applied to your altered art pieces, too, so even if you're not into Zentangle, there's still a lot you can learn.

    Go to the shop's website www.googlyeyescrafts.com/calendar to find out more, and call the shop to register: [masked]

    The plan for our first Meetup in 2013 is to provide you with some options for creating and binding a homemade journal.
    Although I will provide guidance on a couple of techniques, I encourage everyone to bring and share examples of the journals you’ve created or bound.
    I will demonstrate how to make a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” journal. I like this size because I am able to feel comfortably creative and not overwhelmed.
    Below are some materials you may want to bring with you or purchase from the store when you arrive. [u][b]Journal covers:[/b][/u]
    Can be made out of a manila folder, cereal box, birthday card, heavy cloth, card stock, art board, book board. [u][b]Journal pages: [/b][/u]
    Can be made with just about anything you want. My personal preference is mixed media or water color paper. [b][u]To bind the journal[/u]: [/b]
    Twine, string, embroidery floss, book binding or other heavy thread
    An awl/hole punch tool
    PVA or Aleene’s Tacky glue, Duct tape, book tape or binder rings depending o

    We had a small group Friday (Dec 28) at our Journal meet-up. Patsy, Lena (our new friend) and I had a good time talking about some of the experiences we want to have in the New Year.
    For our January meet up our focus will be on the different ways to create/bind a cover for your Journal. For the February meet up (and for the rest of the year) we will focus on a specific technique for each page in the journal. So, if you want to buy or make a new journal (I'll be making mine) to use in 2013 come to the January meet up and we will get you started.
    I will bring in a few examples to touch and feel , but if anyone else wants to bring in a journal for ‘Show and Tell’ that would be great also.
    I'll ask Kathy to post more details and a supply list in the next couple of weeks.
    And, as always if you would rather work on your own project instead of the scheduled project for the meet up, that’s fine also. It’s really only about sharing and experiencing art with friends anyway.

    A Heads Up...

    On Friday, January 25th, Beckah Krahula will be at the shop giving a weekend of workshops. On Friday evening, there will be a book signing, and that shouldn't interfere with your meeting, but you may be displaced for the month, and table space may be limited. Sorry I didn't think about telling you guys last night. Beckah Krahula wrote "One Zentangle a Day", and she'll be up here offering a variety of Zentangle classes:

    Friday, 12:30-3:00 Valentine Wearable
    Friday, 3:30-6:30 Tangled Fabrics
    Friday, 7:00-9:00 Meet the Author/ Book Signing
    Saturday, 9:30-12:00 Beginning Zentangle
    Saturday, 1:00-3:00 Stamping, Tangles, and Color, Oh My!
    Saturday, 4:00-6:30 Tangled Mica Jewelry
    Sunday, 9:30-12:00 Valentangle Glitter Cards
    Sunday, 1:00-3:30 Tangled Metal

    Happy New Year!
