CHA Make N Takes Projects Done

This post is very heavy with pictures.
When I was in Chicago for CHA- I signed up for a couple classes with people I just admire so much.
The two projects below are the fun ideas they shared with us all.

Clear Scraps- Susan and her staff did a fab job with this beautiful Acrylic and chipboard book.
 Isn't this beautiful?

How about the beautiful embellishments

For my second project Marah Johnson had us work on a H20 painted album.

I used pictures from CHA to put in the book.

 I wish you could see how sparkling and rich the colors are on these pages-Just Love Them!

Can you believe how many pages and the fun details?

The back of the book actually has an easel so it can be displayed.

I really enjoyed both of these classes- glad I could share with you.
