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
