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. :)

Hi Maria!! Speaking of being so stinkin talented!! There you go creating another beautiful project!! We live on the opposite ends of the country, so it would be a little hard for me to attend class. But if I did live on the other side, you would be sure that I would attend!! I LOVE the Zephyr line. I attended CHA this year and fell in love with everything Prima, but seeing this line made me want it even more!! Love love the colors!! Looks like a breath of summer!! I would be happy to do an exchange program with you. Summers here in Florida are brutal!! My daughter lived in Vancouver,Wa for a year last year while attending school in Portland. I never got the chance to go see her before she moved back. I am sorry that I didn't. I thought she would stay the 2 years in school there. Alas, she missed the Florida sun and transferred to school Florida. Well, I enjoy visiting your blog and seeing all of your beautiful creations. Keep creating!!
