About THIS workshop box:

Turn a travel photo into an Art Journal with Gillian Travis

What a great workshop - released in September 2021 


This workhsop taught us to how to take our holiday snaps and turn them into pages for a travel journal, or postcard, or wall hanging.
Instructions were provided by clever artist, Gillian Travis and she taught us to use Acrylic paint, with iridescent medium on a common fabric base with applique, inktense pencils and stitch, which along with instructions and a paintbrush, were all included in the box.
Gillian is an intrepid traveller and fantastic and energetic teacher.  She makes an art journal every month from her travels... and I have had the pleasure of seeing them... they are marvellous!
