Aubergine piano hinge journal (cover)
Coming in August, we’ll delve into a new way of creating a book. It’s called the Piano Hinge binding, and it looks alot harder than it really is. We’ll decorate the covers with custom papers (we’ll paint and embellish) and lots of scraps. Then we’ll make inside journal pages that you can later write or color or stamp as the spirit moves you). Anyway, it’s lots of fun and I encourage you to bring whatever papers and other goodies you may want to include. Here’s a picture of the journal I am sending into Somerset Studio for the Aubergine call. I’ll be showing the real journal at the class Sunday and taking it in next week. Then I’ll design a new one for the class.
Class on Saturday, Aug. 22, 10:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m., $50; Bring precision scissors, glue sticks, dbl-sided tape, red tape, rubber gloves. Sign up at Stampin’ From the Heart at (310) 391-0466.
Get ready to delve into the world of aubergine–WHAT’S THAT?–you may ask. Well, it’s just a fancy word for purple. And we’re going to make some great ATCs using a postoid theme. Each one has its own personality and you can choose two from four designs to make at Stampin’ From the Heart, on Wednesday, August 19, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. All materials will be provided. Cost is $10 for the session. And don’t forget to bring 6-8 ATCS of your own design to TRADE–that’s the T in Artist Trading Card, after all. Look forward to seeing you.
The year’s half over!! Time flies when you are making ATCs, I guess. But it’s never too late to join our happy ATC trading group. This month’s ATC Night will be Wednesday, July 15, 2009 at Stampin’ From the Heart in Los Angeles. Fun starts at 6:30 p.m.; cost to make two ATCs is $10. All materials supplied. This demonstration by me includes making a custom embossed background and then embellishing it with my favorite darling smiling ladies (see more below) and colorful tissue. Makes a snazzy Artist Trading Card that can then be mounted on a specially sized greeting card, perfect for all occasions. Bring some cards to trade with the others and an extra to be displayed at the store.
Hope to see you there. When in doubt, Jess Create It!
