NEW aLteReD bOoK class!

i FINALLY have something so show you on the circus-themed altered book class that is scheduled for April 23rd at Stamp Antonio!

although i LOVED the papers, the subject of “circus” had me a bit stumped; i just couldn’t seem to wrap my head around it. i didn’t really think that crafters would want to create this book just to display photos of trips to the circus, although it could be used for that. my altered books usually have a definite use and purpose, practical whimsy i guess you could say. but “circus” was a topic that didn’t seem the least bit “practical”. 

but, after much thought and contemplation {which requires just a FEW more brain cells than “thought”}, i finally had that AHAH! moment… my life was particularly chaotic one day, and i said to myself… “ my life is a CIRCUS!”, and there was my idea and inspiration. create an altered book that documents the three ring circus that is life! 

 once i had the concept in tow, the design flowed a lot quicker. i am going to add “circus” quotes to the book that deal with real life. i think it will be a fun way to “express our STRESS”! LOL! 

photos can be added of REAL life events or scenes… i’m picturing kids making messes, laundry stacked up undone, maybe a to do list with dozens of things on it and nothing crossed off – i think you get the idea, all the things that make YOUR life a CIRCUS! i am hoping you will like the concept. 

i should have the sample COMPLETELY done this weekend and IN Stamp Antonio by Tuesday. i was HOPING to have to done in time to take it in today, as i have classes scheduled, but i still have some parts to complete and little goodies to add. 

in the meantime, since the class is only TWO weeks away, i thought i’d go ahead and give you a little teaser…

 

 i’ll send out another e-mail with more photos when the book is all done. 

please keep in mind that the photo just shows some snippets and nothing is complete yet – not even the cover. but i figured something was better thank nothing. i’ll post again once the sample is done with more photos.

the space for this class is VERY limited – about half the size of my other altered book classes – due to supplies on hand, so if you are interested, please sign up QUICKLY!

 thank you for your interest!
