February Class Sneaks

Hey hey!! as promised, here are sneaks for February's classes.  Everyone's been busy with Chinese New Year these past few days but you should be able to start signing up for classes by tomorrow I think.

1.  A vintage style altered folder / album
that's got a little 'cheese box' embedded in it: that's my favourite bit!

2.  A book bound with coptic stitch with a mixed media canvas cover:
I had loads of fun painting and (yes) glittering this.

See you in class in February ok?  Catch you later! I gotta go EAT! :)

Something for Mummy and Daddy

Last year in December we made a calendar for 2012. Now that classes are over, the calendar is going to my mum and dad.
It's filled with pictures of the grandkids and I tried to do it in a style that my mum will like

And incidentally, the colour scheme was lifted from this photo:
awesome colours right??? Who knew teal and orange/peach worked so well together. Feel like getting married again just so I can use this for my wedding colour combi...hahaha!

I'm busy designing February's classes. Promise to give you a sneak when I'm done k?  busy busy busy.

And so it Begins...

Happy New Year!!!! (I know this is like really late) but hey, it's still January right?  Things have kicked right in and we are all back to the rhythm of school and work...  The kids all at school, the Baboo back at work and me in search of more designing mojo as I start up a new year of projects for classes.

Last year, I tried getting inspired by collecting pics on pinterest to see if it would give my mojo a little kick in the pants.  And here's the result:

Bookbinding class using crossed-structure binding

I think it's time to go pinning again....
