You see what I did there? Did you?
Tonight I wanted to share a sneak. Granted, its not attached to the project but this is a small portion of the class. And I mean a SMALL portion of the strip prompts!
You see those strips?
Those strips require you to write one word answers to the questions. They have spaces in the middle of phrase where you write a one word answer. These questions cover everything about you from your head to your toes! Draw round your hand, make finger prints, draw round your foot, paint on the "nails", draw round the objects in your bag - on one page. Analyse your handwriting, discuss your hair, your skin etc. Doodle the things that go through your head (on both good and bad days), divulge everything about you that makes you "you". And get arty into the bargain - all in a lush Moleskine Cahier book (the large size, not the dinky doodle ones!)
On Monday I will release the class to purchase at £22 inc postage and packing for the supplies OR £15 without the supplies (although you can download the prompts to cut out on your own smooth cream card for £2 extra). The class will bet open to 30 people but I do have lots already on my list from the announcement I made on Sunday. But why 30? Well, I had to order the stock in first. I ordered direct from retailers so I don't make money on the supplies. And buying in 30 at a time made it manageable for me first off but also makes the class small enough to deal with questions in a timely manner.
I will print out the prompts and images on the smooth cardstock for you prior to despatch which I have ordered in specially and cut other sheets into tags that will go in the pockets. Moleskine books have 40 pages which you will make into 20 pages (which create pockets) that large tags will go into. You will also receive a Moleskine Cahier Kraft journal, 5 x kraft tags, 5 x glassine packets, a doilie and cut cardstock (but you have to cut the strips yourself - sorry!).
This book will be the "Me, Myself and I" of YOU! Its also fun; there are some pretty quirky things to journal about - that's just me, Quirky Kirky! (Kirky is what I used to get called by my brother, he couldn't say my name properly as a toddler).
The class will have a live (and recorded) video that you can access on the 29th June at 8pm. Its a closed, private lesson that you will be given access to and of course you can watch it again and again just in case you miss bits or you are detained from the study.
If you are interested in the class release of 30, do list your name below or email me HERE. I want you all to enjoy this amazing process and keep a record of the things that will be essential to your memory as sit in your rocking chair, wrapped in your quilted blanket and racking your brains about your yesteryears. Or have it as something to pass on for generations to fawn over and create discussions about YOUR life. I'm very proud of it and you will be too and PLEASE do not worry if you think you are RUBBISH at drawing. I am not the best pencil drawer (I'm more of a digi artist) but you could always use paper-piecing in those parts of the journal.
NB: To decorate your book at home, fun things to have to hand are acrylic paints, bubble wrap, needle and cream coloured thread (or white), a brayer, spray inks, scissors, glue, double sided tape, a dis-used gift card or old plastic credit style card, decorative stamps (if you have them but I will supply some images you can use to cut and paste that I have designed).
Monday night the class goes live, so keep your eyes peeled if you are interested.
