Her.... Who is She?
Hi all, this is Katie Watson! Counting down the days until Reflections starts! I am getting excited and hope you are also!
In my class, we will be exploring YOU. I used my book as more of a picture journal, I filled it with little tidbits that seem to represent who I am.
I'm pretty simple, well not if you ask my husband...but he won't be taking the class so I can be who I want to be. After all it's my album....which is exactly the point.
This album is yours. You may do with it however you like. You may record your deepest loves or simply record the little things that bring a smile to your face. We are all made up of multiple layers and sometimes we want to share the deep dramatic parts and sometimes we are only in the mood for light happy conversations. That is the same with this book. Let it speak, "You"! Whatever you want to share is up to you.
We will be using lots of fun Goodies from Maya Road, October Afternoon, Studio Calico, Lily Bee, Kenner Road and some real Vintage Goodies.
We will also be learning a really easy fun chippy paint technique using the new Maya Resist!
I used all wallet sized photos. Most of them I did however crop down a bit as I went. So bring about 18 wallet size pictures (I used mostly portrait orientated photos and a few landscape) that have a bit of cropping room. Or, if you prefer you may add your photos later. I know that some people like having lots of time to think, journal and embellish and hold off on the photo part for after class. That is fine also, you will leave with pictures of every page in my album and will have learned every technique.
Hope to see you soon!
