This is what I made yesterday at Kelly Kilmer’s class! It was a wonderful experience and I’m very glad I signed up. She is as generous, patient, funand warm as she is online. I did get some new tips from her but also saw in person some of the techniques she discussed online. As others have pointed out, one of the highlights of the class is just the chance to use her stash–especially her tapes! I now understand her addiction…I share it now!

I also found a love for transparencies and some really good tips from Kelly about how to use and attach them. She also gave me a couple extra pieces and I bought some more at Stampers Warehouse in Danville after the class.

The other thing I’ve been discovering about my style is that I really do like to mix up the textures. I already knew that I like to use everything including “waste” but I really do like to mix it up. This was one of the spreads where I used the wax paper I painted on and use it inside the book–partially for an unusual texture but also to remind me of the great workshop.
