Some snapshots from the class I taught on saturday.
We made flowers
And added lots of stamping with some lettering and quotes, each of these pages holds a pocket for a tag, I added heart shaped tabs to the top of my tags as my theme was 'love'
Each person chose their own embellishments, stamps, colours and inks, so each book turned out completely unique.
We had a fabulous day, a full class of lovely ladies ( a couple of new faces as well as familiar ones too) resulting in beautiful 'one of a kind' finished mini books to take home. This was the second sample I made for the class, I wanted to show that it could be used for photos and journalling also.
Of course my photos had to be my favourite subjects
The slide mounts were sanded, inked, embossed and stamped
The papers are all by Melissa Frances
We added texture and dimension with die-cuts, embossing, flowers, ribbon and lace. It is always hard to tell from the photos but the books were quite small, 4 inches square.
I chose to add journalling on my tags, I wanted to document the 'things' my children love right now, I think it will be interesting to look back on in years to come. The backgrounds for these tags were created with masks and a direct to paper inking technique.
I received a lovely email and couple of text messages from the ladies to say thankyou but honestly I want to thank them for making my saturday such a fun and relaxing day.
I am busy planning and making cards for this saturdays workshop which is an all day Christmas card workshop, I will be back in the week with some peeks of the cards we will be making, as always, please telephone the shop if you are interested in a place.
I have also completed a page in my glue book, my circle journal pages and a scrapbook layout this weekend, I will be back tomorrow with a few more pics.
