Vintage Book

About 5 years ago, I was fortunate enough to take classes from Traci Bautista. This was before her books and national tours, and I learned so much.

I always thought Traci was ahead of her time. In her classes, we learned to transfer images, play with paints, and stamp on many different mediums.

I made this book for my parents during one class and I never posted it. The instructions were to bring in colored and black & white copies of older pictures. The album is much more vintage-like than my style but I thought it came out beautifully.

And the book? We learned to bind it ourselves! Speaking of...I wonder where I put her notes??
