Nellie Wortman

I believe that we all have a story to tell and everywhere we go we leave evidence of this and it through my pieces of art, that I share my stories. I love working with old, tattered, vintage and recycled items and incorporate them into my pieces of art and give them a new breathe of life.

About this course

I have had a passion for creating books for over 23 years and have created hundreds of books within that time. 

One of my favorites to create, are small books, that can be held within the palm of your hands. There is something to be said, for holding a piece of art that you created, that captures the memories or moments that you wish to revisit time and again.

 I have created a class, that is exactly this. I will teach and show you how to create this small book, that holds and captures bits and pieces of that special day, event or moment. How to bring paper, paints, fabrics and embellishments together, to tell your story. 

In this class, I teach the following;

How I create a book this size
My thought process, in creating and choosing the items within this book

Adding paints and inks, to create the looks on the pages

How to sew the pages to the spine and create my fabric looks
Create a fabric wrap

I include a few images that I took in Paris, France, which allows you to jump right into class to use (for your personal use only)
***You have my permission to use the photos that I have supplied for this class, within an art piece and sell it if you choose. 

You do not have my permission to sell the image/print in itself or within a kit.***

I discuss how I overcome hurdles/road blocks, distractions and what is your focal point

I have included; 18 video segments of instructions, over 5 hours of instructions for this book

Whether you create this book for yourself or as a gift, it will surely be a book, that will be cherish for years to come.

I have also made my classes available for download. Please keep in mind, that to be able to download the videos, you may find that your download speed is too slow. If you find that you are having a hard time downloading the videos, this may require you to find a spot(business) that allows free use of their wifi and has faster download speed or contact your internet provider and see about obtaining faster speed. Also, sometimes firewall protections and image blockers, will prevent you from downloading videos.

***PLEASE NOTE*** I still hold the copyrights to my videos and photos, even though I allow you to download them. The videos are for your personal use only. You do not have my permission to copy the videos or photos and resell them for any purpose.  ***All Sales Are Final***
