It’s Marathon time! Gather your scrapbook supplies, some bits and pieces from your stash along with lots of your pretty papers and join us in this next Scrap your Stash Marathon set for Sunday, Oct. 20.
You’ll learn to use papers and embellishments you already have in your stash. Dig deep and bring those buttons, numbers, washi tapes, threads, lace and more to use in your layouts. I can help show you how to incorporate those things you’ve been holding onto into your page layouts.
Bring a couple border punches and see how to use them to create pretty paper edges on your layouts. Use Ranger’s Distress Inks and edge distressing tool to create a worn, vintage look.
I’ll show you how to make flowers from your scraps! Or bring all those pretty packaged flowers you’ve been saving for a special layout and use them up!
So gather your supplies and invite your friends to join us for a full day of scrapbooking classes. You have the opportunity to complete four beautiful layouts from the supplies you bring with you. It’s a fun-filled day with crafty people! Class runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20.
Register in my online store where you’ll also find the supply list (click ‘view more’). Photos can be any size – mine always vary in size depending on my mood. Additional photo can always be added to these layouts as well.
Peace & Love, Hippie-Style
And if scrapbooking isn’t your thing, how about art journals? My next Adventures in Art Journal begins Monday, Oct. 28 and continues each Monday through Nov. 18. Classes run 6-8 p.m. at the CoBACH Center in Brighton.
This series (No. 10!) is all about Peace & Love, Hippie-Style. When I sat down to play with my paints and stamps it just happened. That old hippie in me came out! The colors, the style; it just happened.
I really hope you’ll join me and let your inner hippie out too! Feel the freedom to play – just play! You’ll use paints, stamps, markers, bits-n-pieces of this-n-that creating lively, colorful pages that will just make your heart feel good. This series ends with a twist and you won’t know till the very end just what that twist is – it’s a secret!
So go buy your mixed-media paper or journal, toss your paints, brushes, markers and gesso in a bag and get ready for class. Register for this Peace & Love series in my online store where you’ll also find a supply list (click ‘view more.’)
Free time & demo for Art Journal students
I’ve set up two hours of free play time for my students who have taken my Adventures in Art Journal. Bring your previous pages to work on or finish, products you might have questions on, or a demo you’d like to see. I’ll be there at the CoBACH Center at 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 and we can stay until 8 p.m. Let me know if you’ll be there.
