Today starts two new courses that I’ve signed up for. The first one is from www.shimelle.com called ‘Pretty Paper Party’ – A four week celebration of pasting pretty paper to other pretty papers in an aesthetically pleasing manner. One of the first tasks this morning was to show your patterned paper favourites. I took this photo of the containers I keep mine in – one for ‘new’ papers and one for ‘older’ ones. You can see the in the ‘older’ container there are alot more so am hoping to start using some of these up on this course.
The second class is here – www.craftytemplates.co.uk/create10.html – With Create 10 ‘The Collectors Diary’ you’ll be creating something totally unique to you based on your own choices. The class begins by re-purposing an old book using a selection of papers and techniques. From then on you’ll be set a selection of tasks that will allow you to fill your book pages. Your book will become a place of inspiration and a place for you to explore ideas and try out techniques.
