Oh, I feel soooooooooo lucky to have attended Anna Dabrowska's "Prima Goes Inky" class in Chino, CA last week! That woman is a mixed media GODDESS! And, she's also such a doll. I learned so much from Anna, but what I will take away from the class is how to think differently about scrapbooking: both the process of creating, and also how to use embellishments in a multitude of ways.
The class involved making a journal. It was amazing at how fast time went by: it took almost 5 hours just to create the cover! Here how mine turned out:
About making this: My friend Krissy has taken one of Anna's classes before, and she gave sound advice when she said to start making a trinket box full of metal embellishments, and I'm glad I had a lot of little things of my own to add to the cover of the journal. We did get some really nice Prima embellies though.
It's so funny- before class started, I saw people taking things out of the class kits, and one thing I noticed was that everyone canvas words like, "journey", "art", "create", and "dream". I was SOOOO hoping for "dream", but I got "create" instead. It wasn't all bad, though- I decided just to spell my name! I painted them with white Distress Stain, added rhinestones to the letters after I got home to accent them- they weren't visible enough for me.
Here's a closeup:
If you ever get the chance, take a class from Anna- it will be a wonderful experience for you!
This is awesome! I love the color palette. =)
