Binding Memories in Black and White: I'm teaching a class!

There is a book in every direction, every nook and crany, every shelf, and every flat area in my house. Most I've read or will read. Some of those books are filled with images, some with recipes, some hold only lists. My favorites keep paintings, photographs, secrets and dreams.I love knowing how to create the vessels that will house the stuff of my life. You’re going to love it too.In this class, we will use items found in our yards to create bleached images that form the pages we bind into vintage books to be used as photo albums and journals. Vessels that will hold the information of our lives.You will leave with a bound book ready to house your photographs, journal entries, sketches or paintings, as well as the knowledge that will enable you to make other long-stitch books.

It would be great if you could join us at Lemoncholy's Studio in Wall, New Jersey, on August 1.

  21. Came over from JoAnnA's blog. I too make journals from old books but mine are nothing compared to these. You have done a beautiful job and if I lived close to you I would be at that class. I am following you, I don't want to miss anything. Love the photo of the bee JoAnnA has posted.

    I have been so busy lately being a Grandmother...I must say I admire your photos of the Grandchildren even more now. It is a lot of work and luck...on my side...to get good photos of children.
