Elements class wk 01

Hello fellow journalers ;0) I am currantly taking two classes one is a Digi class more of this on my other blog Crafty Dawn I am also taking a new journal class  The Elements of Art Journaling group this is a class I am really enjoying for more info. follow the link. It's free to join the Wild & Precious Studio and there are lots of different groups to join so please go have a looksey ;0) the elements is a class you have to pay for but honestly this is so worth it. And there are lots of free groups to ;0)


Here is what I managed in my first week! Week one was all about covering and strengthening a composition book. I couldn't find one of the ones Effe used so I used some school exercise books (a lot thinner) I still followed the tutorials, I have even done some sewing down the spine, so these journals will not be falling apart. ;0) It was cool to actually go through this step by step.



Here is some close ups of the covers. It's still not too late to join in the fun and the cool thing is all the class videos & PDFs are all downloadable so they are yours and you can take as long as you like to complete the course. All the videos are really good and there is even a fast fwd one with no chat so you can just zip through until you get to the bit you need (very clever Idea). I have used lots of papers, paints and stamps etc to make this my own. So I am entering this into Paint Party Friday. I still followed the techniques shown by Effy. And please do not forget about my monthly Journal challenge for July. There's still plently of time to join in click Here for all the information. Love Dawn xx
