Last time I updated the information post with some sneaks of one of the layouts from the morning classes, if you want to get the details please click >>> HERE. Today I would like to introduce you to the close ups of mini book classes.
First of all – it won’t be a typical mini album with a hard, mixed-media feeling. This time I decided to make something more complicated in the structure and more elegant just with some subtle mixed-media elements inside. The construction is combined with three mini albums gathered together and closed into a mini book.
The techniques I incorporated into this project are: basic letterpressing made with ink pads, some dlicate watercolours and splashes, die-cutting using BigShot, creating some hande-made embellishments using stamps, lots of stitching and elements of construction.
You will be working with lovely supplies from various companies: October Afternoon, Crate Paper, American Crafts, Oh Snap Boutique, Studio Calico and Studio Tekturek.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED DURING CLASSES:
Basics like: long ruller, sharp scissors, glue, strong double-sided tape, craft knife. You will need NEEDLES!!! Don’t forget about it. If you have any threads in various colours – please take them as well. I will bring the colour which I used in my project, but maybe you will be interested in other as well so please take them with you. Other thing – crop-a-dile or something to makes holes, punching, sets eyelets. Stamps of you choice – I will bring mine, but it will be your project so probably you will want to use any spanish words which I don’t have in my drawer, so you can organize them by yourself. If you have ANY embroidery stencils by Amy Tangerine or any other please bring them. I will have mine but if we will have more your work will be faster, please help me with it!
Besides – you will need basic brushes, watercolours or mists or gelatos or neocolors II – whatever you have at home. Of course a cup of water and paper towel are always welcome during my classes :)
Oh, if you have any gold media like mists or acrylic paint or gold glitter or gold foil – whatever – bring it! The gold colour suits perfect to this colour palette I propose you for this album. Remember – this is only the example what you can create from the kit. If you are more mixed-media scrapbooker it’s ok! I will bring more letterpress plates than I used in my album, we can add more gesso and watercolours if you want, I can work with you in this case and help you create something with a strong mixed-media feeling. I want you to be happy and staisfied during the class. I will be there for you so I will make anything you want for a few hours at that Saturday.
PICTURES: I had no time and no proper pictures from last December in my drawer, so used few peeks from my Pinterest boards. I count on you taht you will bring some of your favourites! Remember that it don;t have to be typical december topic, you can preapre also pictures from november or other winter mood. You can also treat this project as a Proejct Life becasue we weill be working with typical PL card size – you use supplies from the kit and hande-made journal cards created during classes in your PL spreads! It’s not needed to close these memories in a mini book. During this workshop you will get to know how to create special journaling cards with your own photos, using letterpress, blind prints, layering, watercolours…
In my project I used eight photos in typical, small 7×10 cm size. You already see the colour palette for the project – try to find something what will be rather simmilar to these colours or use just black and white pictures.
The last information is – you can treat this mini book as your this year December Daily album. You will find lots of christmassy ‚October Afternoon’ ‚Silent Night’ goodies in you kits so your project can looks like typical DD album. The decision is yours. Hope you will enjoy the class. I will be back with the sneaks of the last layout next week. If you have any questions please ask in a comment below or send a message to Sandra Padovano or the Mer Gayo Val. Besos!
