Prima Mixed Media Canvas Album Class 8/30 & Job Posting

Happy Monday, everyone!

Wherever you are, I hope you are having beautiful weather! Here in the lovely Pacific Northwest, we are finally enjoying some gorgeous summer weather ... warm (okay, hot) temperatures, clear skies, and neighborhood festivals ... it is all so lovely! I wish summer was year-round, but then, I'd have to switch places with one of you. Anyone want to do an exchange program?? :)

Well, the sunny weather is part of the inspiration behind my upcoming class for The Mad Scrapper. That, and I have been pining for a Prima class ... I just love their flowers, paper lines, and embellies! With that said, here are some photos for the project I'll be teaching on Thursday, August 30th. In my class, everyone gets one of Prima's fabulous canvas resist mixed media albums ... we'll ink and mist it up, then add some of Prima's lovely paper and embellishments from their colorful new Zephyr line.

I was pleasantly surprised at the size of these canvas album covers ... they're 7 3/4" wide x 9 3/4" tall, so they are pretty spacious. :)

I wanted to share my most recent project, a worn and weathered journal (it can also be used as a mini album) that I made for The Mad Scrapper. I used Graphic 45's lovely "A Ladies' Diary" paper,  chipboard die cuts, and real coffee to make this book!

Thanks so much for looking!
