Available Classes

Want to take a class?  Are you a store looking to bring in a Guest Designer?

Here you will find a list of classes I have designed.  I can also design a class specific workshop to suit your clients creative needs.  I create Technique Rich classes where students will leave with an abundance of technique and product knowledge.  In my classes I offer techniques, product knowledge and encourage the class to be inspired to create.  This creates a confidence to apply anything they learn to any future projects, products they want to ourchase and future stash building.  Select your classes and lets make plans.

Watch for updates and new classes.  I am always making something ;)  Some of these classes will be taught at different locations.  You can see dates and links if you want to take a class.

Butterfly Dreams

Who would have thought restraint would be a technique in itself.  This class shows off the bold colours of the butterfly and Distress Crayon background.  This class is all about blending Distress Crayons, texture paste and leaving some white spots.  


Stay Curious

Venture into the vibrant Dylusions Paints with me with an element of grunge.  Have fun blending your paints with hands to create this blended look.  Add a touch of grunge with a 12x12 piece of pattern paper and freehand the flower.  This is all about hands on and letting go!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Mixed Media Haunted Tombstone

Ohhhhh help me.... It's my favourite time of year.  Not that I needed to tell you.  I do love Halloween and all the creepy things that go bump in the night.  OK, not really I am a chicken.
I recently received some brush love from Tracy Moreau.  How excited was I... ummm BLOWN AWAY.  You will be seeing these Dynasty Brushes from me a lot!  Like all the time.  

I put my tombstone together which is an Etcetera Tag with some pieces to creep it out.  Then pulled together some Deco Art Media Paints.  YUM!

I used the Medium Flat Brush to apply the paint.  It gets in everywhere.  For the back I used a baby wipe to apply the grey.  I mean... it's the back right.

Oh ya texture paste people.

MAGICAL!  I applied a variety of browns, orange, green and black with my flat brushes.  These brushes went right over my textures and blended beautifully.  JUST AMAZING!  Add accessories... like the inky kind and die cut kind.

TA DA...


To create even more texture Baked Texture everywhere.


SHINY!

What I learned with Gel Press

LET GO...  that's all!
No really, I have never done this before and always wanted to try.  So it would be a good idea to start with... umm oh I don't know... card stock for a card background.  Nope, I went for 2 pages.  I told myself the same thing I tell in my workshops...
***WATCH MY VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST***
"TRUST THE PROCESS"

Check out my quick video for the good stuff. 

A few good things... ok AWESOME THINGS!

Not seen in the video but I did the linen side of the media journal with collage paper and OH MY GOODNESS!

SERIOUSLY... LETTER IT goes on EVERYTHING!

A closer look at the collage tissue.

Collage Words are a perfect layer.

I used Scribble Sticks to pinpoint colours.

I can't believe I did this!

Scribble sticks are the bomb!

These 2 pages look awesome.

So what are your thoughts on my first Gel Press art journal pages.  Did I do OK?  
I love the freeing process of just smearing around paint.  I love all the layers of paint, textures with stencilling…
