shimmerz and reflections

Feels great to finish up all my to-dos for my Reflections class earlier this week. Here's a peek at the album we'll be making. Maya Road makes this really neat canvas album that I love because it has canvas pocket pages inside. Mini albums are meant to be interactive where you can explore through it like a treasure hunt.
Shimmerz is a really cool, colorful spray ink... I'm excited to use their products as part of my classes to add color and design to the canvas pages.
Lots of ruffles on the cover using my fabric paper. I tear the fabric from the adhesive back because I love how it pleats.
After finishing I sent a text to Collin, he likes when things are his idea, to see if it'd be cool to reward myself with some purchases from a really cute online shop Ruche. The answer was yes & my order has shipped & is on its way. yippeeeeee.
