unframed, a vintage art journaling course

UNFRAMED Introduction

In my first art journaling course Unframed, I disassemble and transform an old, broken, framed print into a hand-bound art journal, using as many of its beautifully aged components as I can creatively bring forth.

While dismantling the frame, I found it was stuffed with newspaper and some interesting looking cardboard as padding to hold the piece in place.  As I uncovered each layer, I considered how I could use the intensely aged elements in an art journal and I wanted to share the process with you.  

I created Unframed mainly to encourage you to be on the lookout for unconventional materials at antique and thrift shops that you might use to build and adorn your art journals.

In this course, I disassemble the frame, construct an art journal from its parts, prepare the pages and embellish a few of those pages with vintage elements and mediums such as acrylic paints, inks and pastels. 

I’m so grateful you’re here to share my first Teachable art course with me and I look forward to creating many more!
