At the front of the store, nestled in a vintage suitcase, you will find a wonderful travel journal made by Ann Kerr.
The worn book cover has been altered with inks and sprays, making a great background to showcase this travel lady tag from the kit. Look closely at all the details and add-ons you will find enhancing the book cover and throughout the pages.
Inside are several signatures of hand-stained papers and unique divider pages where Ann has used more embellishments and paper scraps from the kit to build interesting collages.
The signatures were secured to the cover with crinkly ribbon adding another vintage touch. Ann can really rock that vintage feel! This book would be great to record your travels through middle earth or a great keepsake for memories.
Kit products used: Tag, worn book cover, film strip, metal bits, ink and spray, designer paper, die cuts.

This week we are featuring a 12” x 12” layout by Dooreen.
A stamp of the Eiffel tower was offset from the middle of the page. A stencil from The Crafters Workshop was used, with molding paste, to add the word ‘explore’ near the bottom of the page and a broken wheel stencil along the top left. Once the molding paste was dry I sprayed it with Lindy’s Silver Silhouette colour, holding the spray quite close to the paste to avoid splatter, and then moved the color around with a damp paintbrush. The background paper was not treated in any way, so any added wet color will soak in and stain the paper. Add as much or as little color as you want, avoiding over saturating the paper. A photograph of the Eiffel tower was printed off and added to: paper scraps, post cards, and washi tape to create a collage of elements. A script stamp was randomly applied all over the page to visually tie everything together.
Kit products used: Silver Silhouette spray, alphabet card, paper scraps, washi tape. Come into the store to see this and other projects Dooreen & Ann have made with this Mixed Media Kit.

Please join Katie and create 4 amazing pages. These layouts will be perfect for many occasions: zoo, animal park visits, animal themed birthday parties and are so stunning you could create them waiting for photographs to put in later! To achieve this amazing layered look you need to do a fair bit of fussy cutting. If you would like to start ahead of the class date, kits for pre-cutting will be ready for pick-up after July 29th.
Please bring to class: paper cutter, scissors, black foam dots (two packages), your favourie adhesive (I use Score-Tape), Walnut or Vintage Photo Distress Ink with foam inking tool and Glossy Accents. Everything else is included.
Thank you, we look forward to seeing you at class!
