Sorry for the delay of this post. Typepad was down for awhile - threw off my plan a bit - but here is the info as promised...
WOW, Just a couple of weeks before our first Camp Mosaic Moments! We are super busy getting all the last minute details together. I am so excited to have the opportunity to make new friends and spend the day talking about something we all have a passion for: "Designing Fabulous Scrapbook Pages!"
I know you are curious...
Here is what we will be doing for our first class of the day (Cutting Tips & Techniques):
We will work with one of my favorite signs of spring (Dogwoods) So, bring along some of your not-yet-scrapped spring photos if you can (to fill in the blank mat spots).
First we will practice the two main cutting techniques (Basic Mosaic cuts and how to use the Mosaic Moments Mat and our Count and Cut System to fit photos & mats on the grid.
Then we will learn some advanced cutting techniques: Frame Cuts (see frame cut dogwood image above) and Panoramics (not shown.)
Supplies you should bring:
Hopefully you received the list of supplies to bring via e-mail. If you didn't receive that e-mail please e-mail us: [email protected]
Supplies we will provide:
1. Mosaic Moments Mat. If you have a Mosaic Moments Mat - please bring yours to use at the Camp. We will gladly exchange the new mat provided to you, for a credit good toward other Mosaic Moments supplies.
2. Mosaic Moments Grid Paper, various supplies, and even some of the photos, for all of the classes.
3. A lovely tote to hold your supplies & goodies. Colors vary, first come first serve on the color choices; so, come early if you have a preference. :)
Hope you like Chevron Print!
I don't want to give away all the fun (have to have a few surprises) but, here is a peek at our first afternoon project:
This project, with grid paper changing techniques and hidden journaling spots, is a hint into our May Literary Inspiration (any guesses what work of literature we are referring to?)
If you have photos in mind to add, please bring them - we'd love to see your finished page. If not you can always add photos later.
If you are going to stay in Williamsburg for an extra day to two...
Great Places to take pictures in Williamsburg:
The Colonial Parkway (see map below) a lovely scenic drive between Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Jamestown
Colonial Williamsburg - If you have time to spend, CW is a lovely place to get a historical tour. (You need a paid ticket go inside the buildings.) However, when time is limited, you can walk around the historic areas and take all the photos you desire free of charge.
Another great drive, with a wonderful view of the James River is on Jamestown Island. (Jamestown was a settlement in the Colony of Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas.)
and if you enjoy a thrill here and there one of my favorite places to take pictures is...
While my family rides bumper cars and roller coasters, I take pictures of all the beautiful flowers and scenery at the park. FYI - Busch Gardens is OPEN ONLY ON WEEKENDS (Friday - Sunday) until the end of May.
