how-to: 16 page journal


video
we did it!  we only bought a video camera 3 years ago to make videos on how we do stuff and finally just jumped in and did it....(I hope).  I'm posting this to see if it works and isn't too big, etc.

  9. For your first video you did great! The directions were very clear. I like how you only showed the supplies and your hands...it was not distracting at all. I love that you had black sleeves on. No other distrations on the table top. Very thorough. Thank you for posting it!

  37. Thank you for the video tutorial. It played perfectly on my computer and I don't have the fastest speed available. No skips or hesitations. Very easy to follow. I'm going to find some paper right now and make one even though it won't be the paper you recommend. When is the next vid? Is it here yet? (just kidding, being like a kid on a long drive. are we there yet?)Thank you for your generous sharing.

  42. Thanks for the wonderful tutorial, Teesha. I just knew I was keeping that last piece of Fabriano for something special!

    ReplyDelete
  43. YES! Finally Teesha does videos. You don't know how long I have waited for this. I just wish the video would go full screen. It doesn't seem to want to in my browser, which is a shame, my eyesite isn't quite good enough for videos that small. I'll have to try a couple other browsers and see if that helps.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow! Can't wait to see what happens next. Thank you.

  53. Dear Teesha,

    Your videos are absolutely inspiring. I'm an art journal teacher from the Netherlands and am constantly pointing our your work to my students as being highly original and creative. I had a go at your techniques a few times...and it did leave its traces in my work, I think.

    Your 16-page journal is a fab idea! And at the risk of sounding pompous, I wonder why I didn't think of it myself. I've been making books ever since I was 5 years old. But for my Art Journals I've always sought expensive good quality books, or I bound complicated journals. But sometimes I was left with the desire to make a thinner, theme-related jorunal...well, this is THE best idea ever. And I love the flaps!!! I can't wait to write my own blurb on the front flap and some quirky info about myself on the rear flap!!!

    So, thanks a lot for sharing your wonderful ideas with us!

    Best regards, Mandy

  55. Thank you for sharing! I just made my first journal using fabriano paper. I'm anxious to see how I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. This was JUST what I've been looking for!! I'm so glad that someone pointed me in your direction. Great video, excellent instruction...you rock!

  57. Thank you for sharing! I can't join any one of your workshops soon as I am in the Philippines but technology is a great gift to us! I love your work and I've shown it to many people here in the Philippines as an example of "You can do ANYTHING!"

    I'm an idiot. Just starting out on the journal adventure and would like to get a good start. What brand of paper do you use? I know you said no to Arches but didn't catch what you do use.

    Thanks so much. I am looking forward to the lettering video.

  59. Nicely done. I'll be watching the additional videos too. You mention waxed polyester thread as preferred to waxed linen. Can you tell me/us why you have this preference?

    ReplyDelete
  60. WOW! Thanks for so generously sharing this with everyone. As you can see, you're in high demand! I'm so excited... I went and bought the paper and tonight I'm going to make myself a journal. And if you were here, I'd kiss you on the lips. Lucky for you you're not here!
