Learn Something New Every Day

Where has the summer gone?   Not just the weather, but the time!    I can't believe it's been over 2 months since I was last on here.

Still I'm back.  Tomorrow brings the start of Learn Something New Every Day with Shimelle.  I first signed up to this in 2008 and finished the whole month.   In 2009 I did the title page and didn't get any further.

I love online classes and I sometimes finish them.   Over the summer I started 52 Card Pickup and @home with Claudine on Big Picture Scrapbooking.  The former has finished although I haven't!   Claudine's class is continuing for another 3 weeks and I'm already 2 weeks behind.

I have signed up for a few others as well.  But more about them as September continues.   I suspect that by the time we're half way through September one of my LSNED pages will be about taking on too much.

I have done some real life classes during the summer as well including an Altered Book workshop with Anneliese.  

 I'm really taken with the idea of altering books - once I got over the panic about tearing pages out of perfectly good books!   I am well on the way to finishing one altered book (not the one in the photos!) and I decided to do my Learn Something New pages in an altered book instead of scrapbooking like last time. 

I've torn the pages out, glued pages together, painted with gesso and inked.   I've even done the cover.   

So, roll on tomorrow.
