shadow of the photographer in the photo.

this is the back of the book.


and the front, tied with an antique doily
and ribbon.



Join me in creating a book of memories filled with collage and
art techniques, treasured photos and heart filled quotes. 
In this class we will make the “blizzard” book that was created by Hedi Kyle when she was stuck inside during a blizzard.  I will show you step by step how to fold and fill the book with blank pages, then demo several collage and journaling techniques for you to add to your pages as you wish. Pages slip in and out with the finished product, but can easily be sewn or glued in if you want them finished that way.  We will talk about different ways to finish the book depending on preference!  The end result is the perfect gift for someone special, or for you to keep as your very own handmade photo keepsake.  Space is limited.  Please call to reserve a spot.

the "blizzard book" was first introduced to me by Misty Mawn in one of her online classes.
this book was created by hedi kyle when she was stuck inside her house during a blizzard.


 the name "floating on memories" is from Judy Wise.  
After our time together last September, she said she was "floating on memories"......
(we both were).
with her permission i use this name for the class:)
