Make a Junque Journal with Julie Fei Fan Balzer

From Julie:

"Use up that stash of painted papers, decorated tags, scrapbook papers and half-finished art projects on paper.

You will leave this intensive one-day workshop with a beautiful tape bound art journal. In the morning we’ll put together our journal pages and in the afternoon we’ll stitch together your fabulous one-of-a-kind art journal!

I love to work in my Junque Journal – an art journal where the pages aren’t blank. It
eliminates all creative block for me!"
