Using your creative, artistic spirit and new, up cycled and recycled components, together we will create a beautiful elegant trifold folio with a three-hole book-bound notepad inside.

A variety of lovely papers and laces, both modern and vintage will be used to complete this folio.

Inside the folio is a bound usable notebook for making notes on, recording memories, gluing photos, personal journaling, or to add memorabilia for a gift or keepsake.

The notebook inside is made up of a variety of papers and scraps using a three-hole book-binding pamphlet stitch.

The folio is held together with a velcro tab and a strip of vintage fabric.

This folio would make a lovely: bridal gift, a bridal shower gift, a Mother’s Day gift, a special Valentine’s Day gift, a hostess gift, something for your best friend “just because”, a Christmas/Holiday gift, or be used to store personal keepsakes. Once complete, you will think of many ways to use this folio.

This folio is not only beautiful, but is a wonderful way to continue recycling the life of old wedding dresses and vintage lace.

This class uses mostly up cycled and recycled components, therefore, it is earth friendly.

The process of placement of lace, fabric and/or paper using elements of collage will be explored.

Book-binding using a three-hole pamphlet stitch will be taught.

Your creative side will surface. This class is about joy, play and taking numerous independent items and turning them into a beautiful folio.

Once you learn this technique, you can also use the same process to create a hand-made clutch, memory holder, keepsake or recipe holder.

After mastering the technique, you can use the process to create a variety of themes for this trifold after class.

You will leave class with a completed, functioning folio.

Lynn Blair
Lynn Blair & Associates, LLC/Art as Therapy
Professionally Lynn practiced as a registered nurse with a Doctorate Degree in the healthcare field. During her 35+ years in healthcare, she noticed how art helped patients and residents heal. And, how art helped patients and residents positively refocus their energy during difficult times. Therefore, she knew when she retired from the corporate world, she would be focusing on Art as Therapy. Lynn has been working with beads, yarn, fabric, paper and a variety of mediums for years, starting with stringing beads and buttons as a very young girl with her grandmother. During middle school and high school she sewed her own clothing. When living in California, for several years Lynn taught beading and jewelry-making classes at a local bead store. At one time, Lynn had a 60″ weaving loom and weaved her own curtains and material.
Lynn enjoys creating items which have a variety of textures, art that includes recycled items and found objects, and repurposing all possible elements in art.
She creates many different types of beautiful ephemera to utilize in her one-of-a-kind art junk journals which she sells in her ETSY Storefront: lynnmariblair
Her commercial studio, Art as Therapy, will be up and functioning in Scottsdale the summer of 2024 where her work can be viewed and purchased.
Lynn is a member of the Sonoran Arts League and Paperworks. Several pieces of commissioned work were generated by Lynn to include a memory bridal journal, a tiny art journal, and a personal grief journal after the passing of a loved one.
Lynn lives in North Scottsdale where she is inspired by the beautiful boulders, native foliage, sunsets, and the gifts of nature within her art.
