Because I keep being asked what's coming next, after 'Cocktail 5', here is just a taste of what our new line looks like. After countless hours of playing around in Photoshop and Illustrator late into the night and some severe cases of numb bum (and brain on occasion!), these designs got the go ahead and will be heading off to the printers soon...YIPEE!
I can't wait to see the proofs - there's something so incredible, so satisfying about seeing a design turn into an actual product :)
As you can see the pendant, in particular, is quite different - and the kit contains everything to make either version - including 2 types of Grungeboard - 2 squares and 1 circle, vintage dictionary paper etc. Photos for this project should be 1" or smaller - I only used 3 in the version above but you could use up to eight if you use both sides of the mini album. By the way in the version I made in the States I used 'Puri Club' photos from my daughter and they were a perfect size!
The morning class is an accordian style 6" mini album and uses lots of clever folds to extend your pages. It's a freestyle class - i.e. I'll show you the various page constructions and you can put it together however you like so you'll end up with an album unique to you! I'll also show you how to take one simple sketch and adapt it for numerous layouts. To decorate our pages we'll be combining Paint Daubers, Luxe-urious stamps, distress inks and Stickles for lots of shimmer and sparkle! This project also uses our brand new papers - Cocktail 5!
In the afternoon, we'll be working in minature with Grungeboard, paint, ink and lots of stamps to create a tiny (approx 1") mini album that's housed inside a cool pendant. Now you can wear your creation wherever you go!
Here's a sneak peek of the workshop I'm teaching for Sun-K at the Japan Hobby Show. It uses one of my new papers and all sorts of other original items! Since the theme of this year's Hobby Show is 'shoku' or 'food' we're making a little mini book where you can store business cards and photos of all your favourite places to eat - a kind of personal Michelin guide if you like! The workshop runs from 10:30 - 11:30 at Booth 6001. More information is available from Sun-K here.
From 1:00pm I'll also be doing a Make and Take at the Sun-K booth so here's a sneak peek of that too!
