Brandi, Tim and I
This past weekend I was fortunate enough to take two Tim Holtz classes up in Elk Grove, near Sacramento at Stampers Corner. It was a blast! I went with my good friend Brandi, we had a great time. Tim is an amazing teacher and Mario did an amazing job keeping us organized. The staff at Stampers Corner did an amazing job with the event! Brandi and I took two amazing classes, "Exploring Alcohol Inks" on Saturday and "Nostalgic Metal Memories" on Sunday. The Sunday class was 4 hours long! It was like two classes in one. The first class was about making hand made books. The second part was learning about working with embossed metals from
Ten Seconds Studio. We had a fantastic time.
My first handmade book and the sample we made during the Exploring Alcohol inks class.
A detail of the cover of my handmade book, made with embossed metal and Tim Holtz embellishments.
And last a detail of my hand stitched spine of my book, using Tim's "kettle stitch".
And today I signed up for an art journaling class from Orly Avineri at the South Bay School for Adults. I am really excited to start the class next week!
