Soooooo, last weekend (after Julie's Mixed Media Class --- which was a blast!), Shari & I jumped on a plane and headed up to San Francisco. . . remember? I promised I'd post pictures of the projects we made . . .
(pssst . . . hey Shari! I need your stuff so I can take pics!)
Well . . .here they are: This little house was designed by Alma De La Rosa. We used stamps from American Art Stamp. Do you love that tree stamp, or what?! AND . . . the house actually OPENS!
Oh baby . . . this was a marathon of a class! Eight cards in 90 minutes! It was great fun and I felt as though I had been re-introduced to Rubber Soul. . . nice clean lines, easy to work with, and great quotes. Yep . . .lots of stamps (and more paper --- egads!) are on the way.
This treasure box was made using Cosmo Cricket stuff . . . yes, I ordered the paper. (I admit, this got a little bit munched on the plane ride home . . . but I'll be able to fix it!)
A Travel Journal using stuff by TPC Studios. I really like their embellishments and paper . . . yes, I ordered their paper . . . and embellishments . . . where am I going to put it all?! Perhaps that's why the spinner landed on "frantic"?
It's a Dog Tag . . . using stuff from Ten Seconds Studio . . . LOVED this stuff . . . lots of it is on the way!
A Junk Journal using stuff by 7 Gypsies. Their Binderie Punch is something else! Battery operated and goes through board book like butter!
A keychain using stuff from Hampton Art . . . they have a great Glue Pad . . and I was quite sparkly when I was done with this project . . .glitter, glitter everywhere, on my face, in my hair . . .you get the idea.
Finally, my Grungebook. I'm very proud of this project . . . by the time class was over, I thought I was going to fall over . . . . Mr. Tim Holtz (yep! he was the instructor, LIVE and in person) said that this may have been a little ambitious for a 90 minute class . . . he was right. The class lasted 2.5 hours . . . and worth absolutely every second!
Yep . . . I took off over the weekend and headed on up to San Francisco for some "training." True definition would be: play with ink, stamps, paper, Grungeboard and metal!
Shari went with and we both took some super classes . . . I'll be posting pics of the projects soon. Oooh oooh . . . . wanna know what I have on order? Lots and lots of new cool stuff . . . ready?
Here's a brief list: Stuff from 10 Second Studio -- OH my! This stuff is gonna knock your socks off! Paper from the Paper Company -- GREAT patterns! NEW images from Rubber Soul, Impression Obsession and American Art Stamp -- CUTE, cute cute stuff!
And . . . my brain is still on overload, so I'm sure I forgot to mention something . . .
Oh, hey! What are you doing this Saturday? Wanna take a class? Terry Medaris will be here teaching colored pencils . . . and there are only a few spots left. Sooooo, if you've been thinking about attending, HURRY! Registration closes on Thursday.
I've been wanting to make a banner for a while now . . . I thought I'd make one for Christmas . . .missed that boat! Then, I thought I'd make it for Valentine's Day . . .missed that boat, too. Then, I thought I'd make one for Spring . . . and then I realized, I wanted one that can stay up all the time and be a reminder to "Be Joyful" everyday . . . so, without further adieu . . . here it is:
May you have a Joyful day today!
