THUD!!!

Back to Perth with a definite thud! The holiday is definitely over and I've been back at work this week and today have been preparing for my next atc class this Saturday - Faux Tin Types. Currently I'm burning a disc with all of my holiday photo's, there was 2000 of them but I've culled it significantly.......HOW many pictures of snow covered mountains does one actually need, I ask you! I'll definitely be including some happy snaps of our time away but as you are not blood-related to me, I won't bore you to death with every little detail and captured image, this is reserved for those who are unfortunate enough to have familial blood running through their veins. Just checked my lap-top, there is 1,083 pictures which is 2.4 gig in total and I'll be getting some hard copies made so I can include them in my journal.....when I get to it!
So onto the Faux Tin Types, these are like the old fashioned photo's, not pretend metal embellishments....there was some confusion at work over this as I didn't leave any samples for the girls to show those who asked about the class while I was away. A very simple process which I'll go into after the class, if I give all the guts away now, the girls won't turn up, will they! Suffice to say they look pretty good and are especially wonderful for those vintage sepia pictures of your long departed relatives.

First sample...."eternal love" (my Grandparents on their wedding day in 1936)...


Second sample...."Classic Mona"...

Another class that I'm going to be teaching in July (I think???) is a Technique Class, this is 4 hours showing 5 different techniques. It's for the girls who just can't get their head around atc's and ask "what do you do with them?", but they'd still like to learn the techniques so they can apply them to scrapbooking or altered books or other mixed media. It'll be done in a book form and I have a 2nd Technique Class forming in my head too as 5 techniques just ain't enough! This first one will cover credit card background, sheer heaven transfers, peeled paper technique, alcohol inks and faux leather.

I'm still waiting for my laptop to download the pics onto a disc so I can then put them on my desktop pc....so next time I post I'll have some pics to show of the mega holiday. ;-) I know, you can't WAIT!!! lol
