next altered book? travel themed?

5 Comments

hi!

i’ve had a few ideas brewing for the theme of the next altered book in my altered book class series, one of which was “travel”.

i recently saw the ABROAD line from AUTHENTIQUE and thought it would work well for what i had in mind…

 

 

  

 

 

 

i was looking for a travel themed line that be “neutral” enough to work with most types of travel photos. trips by car, plane, train or boat. in colors that would work well for a variety of photos too. i think the Abroad line fits the bill on both counts.

i’ve been slowly collecting travel themed “junque” too, here are some of my finds…

vintage train tickets from the 40’s…

tickets (1024x683)

vintage maps…

maps (1024x683)

vintage toy model plane wooden propellers…

props (1024x683)

vintage airline “wing” pins that stewardesses used to hand out to children in the 60’s…

wing pins (1024x684)

and vintage travel stereo cards…

i’ve also got some vintage postcards and maybe some other goodies buried in my stash!

i’d like to get a general idea of the interest for this class, which would be held at Scrapbook N’ More in new braunfels. if you’d be interested in taking a class to make a travel themed altered book using these supplies and papers, please post a comment or use the contact me form at the top of the page.

comments about this proposed class or ideas for other altered book themes would be welcome.

i’ve also been contemplating a “create your own” altered book class – maybe in late spring or early summer. we’d cover my basic binding technique – for anyone new who hasn’t taken one of my classes before. then move onto different page configurations. i’d have lots of my “junque” stash on hand that could be used on your book. cost -wise, i would probably include a “purchase allowance” in the price of the class, so you could shop for what items you wanted. if you would be interested in attending a class like that, please let me know that also.

thanks for your continued interest in this series…

  1. Tami,
    PLEASE let me know when this class will be held. I love the travel theme. As for the create your own and page configurations, I am so there! Bring it on girlfriend.
    Love all your work and can’t wait to see what you do next.

  2. Yrs and YES! :)

  3. Hi Tami, SIGN ME UP!!!! Travel themes r my fave n the paper looks fantastic!!! I love maps, stamps, passports, tickets, n compasses!!!! And Scrapbook n More is PERFECT!!!

    The build-ur-own altered book sounds interesting too. My only concern is time. I think it could work if it was an all day workshop. U’re book takes us half a day n it’s already planned out. One that u have to think about as u go along would take a lot longer. Gilda

  4. Sounds great! I would love to make this book. Do you have a time frame for this class?

  5. Live a kit! Sorry I won’t be able to attend the class. FromColorado it is a long drive!
