class info: 7/12 * {by the sea} beach D-constructed altered book


by the sea book - blog wm use me

class: {by the sea} d-constructed altered book

location: scrapbook n’ more

date: july 12

time: 1:30 to 5:00

cost: $45 {take both the frame and the book class and save $5}


the book is a D-Constructed altered book – we’ll be tearing up a book and putting it back together in a different way! the hard part of the DIS-assembly will already be done for you so you can concentrate on the fun part! the book contains 8 actual pages – so you’ll have 16 pages {front and back} to add your photos and journaling. and just like with my altered books, there are a few flaps and pockets to create. this project is a little easier than my other altered book classes, so if you were wanting to try one, this one would be great to start with! but don’t worry if you are a “regular” in my altered book classes, i think you will still enjoy this one and find new challenges and techniques.

the book is done in neutrals with pops of aqua, think sand, sea and sky! added textures from rope, burlap, shimmery “smooched” tags and hand dyed vintage rayon ribbons.  lots of fun small embellies to add just the right touch. the book is not over embellished though – to let your great beach photos SHINE! this would be great for black and white or sepia photos too. the cover is embellished with shells, chipboard letters and some shimmer from glitter/glass bead gel.

student supply list:

ColorBox Cats Eye Chalk Inks: Creamy Brown, Dark Brown, Chestnut Roan and Prussian Blue {or similar colors}, pencil, double sided tape, black pen, scissors, trimmer, bone folder, ruler, file set, wire cutters, liquid adhesive: Zip Dry and/or 3-in-1 recommended {bring both if you have them}, tiny tim stapler, cropodile or 1/8″ hole punch, paper piercer and mat

NOTE: i HIGHLY recommend using Zip Dry and or 3-in-1; preferably both.  both of these adhesives perform extremely well for this type of project – and no – Beacon Adhesives does NOT pay me to say that!
