My hands are covered in ink and paint. It has been a very happy day.
A few CKCs ago or so I took a few classes from Tattered Angels. One of the classes involved misting a bunch of things pink and orange (designed by Heidi Swapp, of course) to make a girly minibook. I didn't end up finishing the project (pink is not really my style) but the base of the album was really cool; a file folder mini (Tattered Angels Fastenation Mini).
Fast forward to now; I recently signed up for May Flaum's new class: the curious scrapbooker's field guide, and found myself wanting to accomplish a few things.
Note: this class is currently on sale, and if you go to this link, you can get an additional coupon code from the Paperclipping Roundtable for an additional 10% off. Considering the amount of content which has been promised, I think this is a good deal.
I wanted to make something today, as I didn't have to work or do taxes or a ton of laundry. And my desk was clean. Anyway, I wanted to use up a bunch of scrapbooking products (they call this "kit-killing" I believe). I wanted to have many of my results from the class stored in one place (projects and notes all together - something which has worked well for me when taking classes from others, particularly Shimelle). And I wanted to re-purpose the very cool mini book I had laying unloved in my cupboard.
And this was the result:
I am super excited to fill this thing up with bits and pieces. I'm going to get messy. I'm going to make it for me. I'm going to participate in the class and finish this project!
Hope you had a good day too. :)
