So this past Sunday I taught the final class of the 2013 Yearlong Album. It was bittersweet: I loved the class peeps and we had a blast getting messy and playing with mixed media this year but by this point in the process I’m a little tired of looking at the same paper and am excited and ready for the new year to start! We have some amazing new product ordered for 2014 and a new concept – exclusive sketches! If you want more details, or to sign up, contact The Paperie.

Onto the final LO’s….

This a was a jam packed class because we made 5, yes FIVE, LO’s! I was so impressed with everyone when we actually got them all done!

November was all about Primary Elements, medium transfer, Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE), and Wendy Vecchi Translucent Embossing Paste:

November - wheee

I love the rugged, distressed look of the transferred frame.

November - glamour girl

And the paste over a stencil is fabulous.ย My favourite part though, is the shine and texture:

glamour girl - layers and texture

So cool!

The December LO’s had the fun element of used paper towel collage. It looks great as a background photo mat:

December - shine

And even better cut into shapes and used as embellishments:

December - twinkleSeriously, isn’t that colour and texture awesome?

twinkle - layersFinally, we did the last page of the album.

Final Page - it was good

I wanted to keep it simple and picture free but many people in the class added a pic and they looked great!

Most of the LO’s from past year are at my Flickr gallery under the Yearlong Album 2013 set. The ones that are missing are the couple of months where I didn’t finish adding pictures to the LO’s. I’m hoping to get those done in the next couple of weeks and then I’ll update the set with the completed album. In the meantime, enjoy the rest!
