Description

These booklets are folded and stapled, black and white xerox on paper, with paper covers. Some booklets have cardstock covers with colored paper pages. Where indicated, covers, and covers only, are in full color. I am selling a process, not a product. The booklets are not the "thing", but rather house a virtual workshop using my process. The real "thing" is your own expression, guided by my assignments.

“ Message of the Sphinx: Sifting Through the Sands of Time to create texture, drama and content in an Extreme Visual Journal”
This instructional manual is based on my 75 page handbook from my Destiny Voyage Egypt Retreat and cruise up the Nile in 2009. This booklet is 24 pages and was designed as a one day workshop. It provides plenty of information and visual journaling tools! These are great exercises and I can't believe you haven't gotten this booklet yet!!!!!!!!! If you have been waiting for the full retreat handbook, forget it, that's never going to happen...

Travel back in time to Egypt to enter a significant tomb of a female pharaoh in the Valley of the Kings. Make your way to the underworld utilizing mixed media and textured surfaces. In this class I will help you find your edge. We will learn not just how to make background textures, but also how to complete them with images. Learn to work back and forth: through construction, content, technique, embellishment, and back again to construction to build many ancient layers. To create our mummified pages, we will utilize various journal writing exercises combined with art making assignments designed to present us with content and personal symbolism. It is said that hidden below the ancient Sphinx is the legendary Hall of records. Your Extreme visual journal, an artifact of soul, is your very own hall of records. Your inner life depends upon this archeological dig. It is time to excavate the layers of your life for unification of upper and lower you. The result of this endeavor will reveal a treasure more profound than that of King Tuts!

Recommended Supply List:

-Your Extreme Visual journal, blank book, handmade book, or book to alter. (see www.destinyvoyages.com for tips on choosing your book)

Mixed Media:
-your favorite glue - I love big UHU gluesticks
-scissors
-some brushes for your paints (no sponge brushes- get yourself a few good ones and a 1/4” brush).
- a rag or two
-rubber stamp letters - I have a big set and a small set.
-stamp pads (I highly recommend Staz On stamp pads because we work so quickly)
-acrylic paint- any brand, any color in at least two colors, one light & one dark.
-at least two brush markers in different colors.
-a permanent black marker
-a graphite pencil- regular old number two is fine, but if you can get to an art store get an ebony pencil, or a 6B, or a graphite stick (not charcoal)
-white gel pen, white pen and ink, or anything else that can write on dark surfaces.
-a writing pen
-optional: china markers in black, white, red. A couple water color crayons (not portfolios or water based oil sticks). You may want some Egyptian, hieroglyphic rubber stamps or carvings.

Collage Items:
-random collage items ( copies of things that are precious)
-one magazine to cut up
-one poetry book to cut up

As a perpetual student of art, I have reached points of feeling there is "nothing new under the sun" to be shown. This is something new! Juliana's technique goes beyond intuitive. It guides you deeper to the sometimes prickly parts. However, the results are the unique beautiful within us all Thank you for challenging me, Juliana.
