MIXED MEDIA EVENT: For The Record, with Maresa



I am so excited to be part of the Mixed Media Event!

Upcycling is such a fun fad right now, and I couldn't resist incorporating an old vinyl LP into this cute little mini album. This is a modified paper bag album and has all sorts of nooks and crannies for you to tuck mementos and treasures into.  With Father's Day coming up, this would be a cool gift to make for the man in your life.  It goes without saying that this style of album can be adapted to fit any occasion that you might have in mind.

This project is packed full of techniques using tons of Tim Holtz products.  The photos don't do it justice, so next time you are by the store, come on in and take a look at the class sample.

PLEASE NOTE: You will be required to purchase a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stash 8x8 Collage pad [$9.99] for the class (sale priced at $6.99 for class participants).  If you have another paper pad that you wish to use, feel free to bring it instead.

Gina is working on putting together a couple of kit options, for the students who wish to have ALL the paints, stains, pens etc. used, at a great discount.  More information to follow, stay tuned!
