Get Those Creative Juices Flowing....Day 1-3

I am currently taking Amy Tangerine's Online class "Get Those Creative Juices Flowing...." and loving it! The first day of class we learned how to make our creative journals.   I purchased the kit for the class, so I had an Amy T original.  But now i know how to make my own and i have pulled aside a few scraps of my favorite papers.

The second day focused on washi new addiction.   I don't own any right now but i have a few rolls on order from ginko papers.  Amy did show us how to make our own using masking tape and sharpie markers.   I am a doodler so this was so much fun.   Here are my custom washi tapes.

Day three focused on hand stitching words on layouts.  I always wonder how Amy did this.  Since i will be using my creative journal for trying out the techniques in class, I stitched the title on the cover.  I think it came out so cute.  I did learn a couple of things with this exercise.  One, draw the letters bigger than you think and two, space out my holes more.

Can't wait for day four!

hey! love your tape. and love your stitching. I learned the same things when I was stitching, and that cursive is a lot trickier than printing! Love your blog layout too, it's so pretty :)
