I went to a workshop at The Art House Studio in Cambridge. The teacher was Ania Dabowska (aka Finnabair or just Finn) who is from Poland, but now lives in Ireland. She taught us her method and style of creating the front cover for this art journal. It was a fun and interesting class.
We also decorated the back cover. I made mine with less dimension so that it could lay flat. Here is the back cover for my journal.
We did 4 pages on the inside and after working all day, we ran out of time and energy! We went home tired and happy. I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. It's fun to learn new techniques and styles.
