Whimzy owners - Diane and Sheryl

You know you are spoiled as a teacher when you walk into  Whimzy and are greeted by Sheryl Simpson, Diane White and a plate of homemade cupcakes! Such a wonderful group of women showed up for my Coptic Journal class today.  Sometimes when I am teaching - I pause and am so grateful that I get to share my passion for art with other like-minded souls. Thank you, ladies, for a great class!

Coptic Journal Class is this Saturday

I have the privilege of teaching at Whimzy this Saturday.
The class teaches how to make Coptic Journals from vintage books.
I had someone ask me what do you use the journals for? 
My response?

There are so many different uses...

 As a calendar in my purse

Place for quick painting ideas  

and quick sketches along with inspiration pages
They also make great gifts, recipe books, wedding journals, scrapbooks...
and I should warn you--making these journals is HIGHLY addictive.

Saturday, June 18th 12-4pm Mixed Media Coptic Journal  


Learn to create beautiful coptic journals from start to finish using vintage bookcovers, papers, fabric, millinery and paint. Students will learn the basics of bookbinding, create their own covers using various mixed media layering techniques, and receive instructions so they can recreate journals at home. 
All supplies included.
Hope you'll join us!
