Cut + Collage is a PDF based class that explains making windows, envelopes, doors and pop ups as well as acrylic painted layers, and some basic paper cutting in a watercolor journal. The mini paper cut section is the only video, though.
The difference between The Book of Wonder and The Nature Spells journal is that Nature spells is focused on wandering in nature, mark making on tracing paper, gathering photos and writings about nature, and putting it all together in a journal. there’s an emphasis too on sewing bits of tracing paper as a collage element. The only sewing in this class is an option to hand sew a tracing paper envelope. I don’t teach the tracing paper layering techniques in this class.
