After a wonderful week of touring Madrid during my down time, I will be heading to Valencia Spain today to teach some workshops there this weekend. I am looking forward to seeing a part of the country which is brand new to me, meeting the students and seeing the brand new Bambola scrapbooking store which just opened.
The album I am sharing today is a sample which I made as an illustration for the "Start to Finish" Album workshop that I have been teaching here in Spain. It uses the same techniques as the class project, however instead of being made with current scrapbooking products, it is made using a combination of vintage and mass produced products. (I used a vintage embroidered hand towel, a Maya Arts trim, an antique tintype, some mother of pearl buttons, and a Stampin' Up! cream frame which is filled with glossy accents to give the center printed title a durable finish.) I wanted to show the students how they can easily use the techniques they learned in the "Start to Finish" class to make all kinds of awesome albums - both scrapbookish (as in the class) and more mixed media (like this one). This particular album was a hit when I showed it in Madrid and I'm sure the girls in Valencia will like it as well.
To my family and Canadian friends, have a great Thanksgiving long weekend!
