Learning New Scrapbooking Techniques at Gourdo’s

I attended the “After-The-Holidays Halloween and Christmas Scrapbooking Workshop” by Ime Oranga last March 8 at Gourdo’s The Fort.

It has been a LONG time since I last attended a scrapbooking workshop. I was of course curious and excited!

The display of the various sample scrapbook pages in the workshop area was simply inspiring.

We had scrapbook paper and embellishments. We’re all set!

Ime walked us through different mixed media techniques (stuff I’ve been curious about but never really tried) – stamping (as a background), medium, mists:

Here’s her sample page to show the various techniques:

Look at the toys we used to create our pages:

toysThe materials provided were actually for 12 x 12 layouts. Since I haven’t done my Halloween pages for my project life, I decided to make 4 x 6 layouts instead.

Look at my cards:

Finshed productsI was only able to attend the morning session for the Halloween layout. There was a separate session in the afternoon for the Christmas layout using more techniques.

I had a great time in the workshop! I learned new techniques – using medium, mists, stencils. I even got to use a heat gun! Thanks Ime! I also got to spend my morning with other wonderful ladies. Here’s our class picture with our finished products.

They even had some Project Life products! The thing is, I have mixed feelings about this. I am trying to curb my hoarding tendencies but here’s a new source of scrapbooking stuff, so convenient to me. These products are available in Gourdo’s Fort, Promenade, Robinsons Manila, Living Well Podium and Aura and World Market ATC.

    • I know! I’d like to try out the new techniques we learned but it means I have to buy new stuff. (Oh no!) But seriously, I’d like to try the new techniques for my traditional scrapbook layouts and art journals.
