My little video class for Creative Workshops has turned into a production process reminiscent of Titanic, Ben-Hur and/or Gone with the Wind.

The cover of the journal for Art Journaling with Gelatos.

What I originally planned to be a pretty straightforward class on Gelatos turned into a class on art journaling with Gelatos, which led me to create all kinds of journaling prompts, which then led me to want to teach a simple book-binding technique which led to…

…about 4 hours of video instruction.

Four hours that did not fit on one 64GB USB stick. (I have to insert a big thanks to my husband, who went to get me another one yesterday afternoon.)

Four hours that include:

– 15+ Gelato techniques
