The best part about opening PÄS is all the wonderful and talented people we get to meet. This christmas Brian got me an all-day journal making class with Katherine England. She is a well-known artist here in Fullerton. The day event lasted from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at her fun studio here in Fullerton. She was such and inspiration to me as she led my heart to fly with freedom.
Here is her studio in her backyard. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day.
After we folded 8 signatures of watercolor paper, we learned the coptic stitch. I also added some random piece of decorative paper that I love.
We made the covers from 5″ x 7″ pieces of wood and used PVC glue to adhere reprinted OZ book covers.
This is the finished journal complete with cover and leather binding. I already started to write in it. I’m looking forward to a great year of getting to know more of our community in 2010!
