mixed media class with iris uy

i've been off again from blogging. so what's new with that?! lol!

i never realized it will be such a challenge to juggle my time between family (especially with a baby that always clings to you, which i don't mind at all!), work and scrapping.  i had to temporarily give up on scrapping if i want to maintain a "balanced" life, for now.

but it doesn't mean i don't go off scrapping when i can! that's why i took a mixed media class by iris uy over at lasting impression last march 24. we created 3 projects: an altered artist's tray, a layout and an art journal.  the class was very interesting, as expected from an iris uy class. we got our hands dirty using gesso, paint, distress stains, embossing powders and a few other artsy stuff.  we used papers from my mind's eye, some die-cuts, canvass and a few resins. 

here's what we created:

1.  "family" altered artists' tray

2.  "together" layout:
we used strips of leftover paper from the artists tray project on this layout. 
and different mixed media materials as well

3.  "life" art journal:
used the leftover watercolor paper, distress stains and stamping
