“Your Place in the Sun” – a free 12 month workshop on Scrap Beginnings
Have you ever wanted to put together an album about that special place in your heart you call home but didn’t really know where to start? Would you like to record the things you see and the places you go regularly within your community but have always taken for granted as they are just part of everyday life? Would you like to see the wider picture of how we fit into where we live and how exactly we interact with the people around us who share the same common ground as we do on a daily basis?
Then please join me in on Scrap Beginnings for a free 12-month class called “Your Place in the Sun” where you will explore your own community, be it in the rural countryside, urban suburbs or high-density city living. You will soon discover a deeper understanding of the area in which you live by looking at familiar sites with new eyes. We will look at the history of your community, its attractions and its facilities through monthly extensive pdf downloads loaded with prompts and ideas. Each month will focus on a different topic (or topics) and include inspirational layouts, sketch bundles with digital templates to download, interesting facts and a series of challenges to get you started. There will be monthly prizes up for grabs and a gallery for you to share all your work. At the end of the year I hope you will have a wonderful album of completed layouts to record your life in your own community. Not only will you have a very special project to share with your family but you will have learnt new things about yourself, your neighbourhood and also about your fellow class members and the places they call home.
Pre-class information and assignment available on site NOW.
Official class commences in January. Great prizes to be won over the coming month so please register your interest on Scrap Beginnings.
