Hot out of the oven! (I just finished the last project about an hour ago). Here are the three classes that I designed for April classes at Laine's.:
Project No. 1: "REALITY TV" - this project is funny and fun. Its a 6X6 Tim Holtz Configurations box altered to resemble a Tv. There are so many bits to show you, I had to make a labelled diagram (haha):My 'TV' has
1. 'buttons' (but cannot change channels)
2. A cupboard at the back for showcasing trinkets
3. a 'screen' and 'antenna'
4. a super weathered finish
(Er..... I hope you can tell that this is one of those projects that can't be finished in class right?)
The TV is missing its 'stars' (i.e. photos of the Ngoos) 'cos I'm still trying to get the exact right ones to fit the little cubby holes, but I think you get the idea. :)
Project No. 2: "Through the Years" - Mixed Page Mini Album - this one is really close to my heart, so its my pick for April. Very heartfelt and in my favourite vintagey colours and style.It's built from the latest Jenni Bowlin HodgePodge book and will be right up your alley if you like albums where none of the pages are the same shape or size (I love those!).
Its also full of lots of layered pages and hidden books within books...fun to explore - and I hope you'll have fun with all the different ideas for putting 'books' in the book. A really nice one to do for your mum / dad (tho I did mine for my sweet Baboo who hasn't received anything in a while - haha)
Project No. 3: "Fleur" - 2 Layouts - A lot of people know I'm not really into flowers, but I really like how these layouts turned out - 'cos they're more 'vegetation-like' than 'pretty' - not sure if you know what I mean - haha.
This one's has a transparent background
And this one has a nice vintage feel.
Hey, wait a minute? EVERYTHING for April has a vintage feel!!! hahaha.... So, I guess all you shabby chic fans out there....April is your month.
I hope you'll enjoy the classes next month and I hope I get to see you and catch up a bit too! :)
Incidentally, I'll be teaching on Tuesdays and Thursdays from April onwards (not Wednesdays and Fridays anymore) so if you're in town then, drop by and say hello K?
See you in class!
