Birthday Art

I was fortunate enough today to have some time in my craft room to create some art. They are in various stages of completion but I wanted to share anyway.  I hope to spend regular time in it going forward and creating more art to share.

New Fall 2018 Classes!

Summers always go by too fast for me and, this one in particular, has gone by in a flash.  Four business trips for my day job in 8 weeks - 2 to Nashville, 1 to San Diego, and 1 to Philadelphia - it has been a whirlwind!  And, as you might guess, I did manage to pick up a sinus infection from all the travel and, just this week, am on the mend.  I did manage to make it to the San Diego Zoo, one of my bucket list items, which I will be scrapbooking hopefully sometime soon!

But enough about my summer!  Despite all that, I have managed to design and create my new fall classes! 

First up is my new Photoplay Fall Breeze 2 page scrapbooking layout which also uses the Distress Oxides from Tim Holtz!  The class is $15 per person.

Right page

I'm also offering a new Mixed Media canvas class on a 9x12 canvas board.  We'll use a mix of tissue, collage, and book paper, distress oxidesinks, embossing powders, paint, stencils, stamps, and a variety of other items to create canvas.  The attached pictures are only examples of what you might create; it's free form, so use your own imagination (with help from me) to create your own!  You'll learn all the techniques and get a chance to play!  Cost is $25 per person, all levels welcome!

EXAMPLE ONLY:  12x12 California Dreamin on stretch canvas

EXAMPLE ONLY:  8x10 Deep Sea Adventures on wood

EXAMPLE ONLY:  6x6 Postal on canvas board

I'll be teaching both classes at Just Scrappin, Cool Crops Glastonbury and Hyannis, Scrappetizer Never Ending Summer Fun and Holiday Madness Crops, Celebrate Memories, Scrapbook New England's Scraptoberfest, and Pugapalooza. 

Hope you can join me for one or both of these classes!

Simple Stories Travel Notes 2 Page Layout

Somehow it seems that Spring will never come, but being on the Cape this weekend, scrapbooking for myself, me and my friend Siewleng Hiraldo had a chance to go down to the beach and enjoy the bright sunshine (even though we were still wearing our winter coats)! 

This weekend has been great to get away to scrapbook for myself and to create this awesome new class for my upcoming crops!

I used Simple Stories Travel Notes line in addition to Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, and Distress Glaze!  It's a technique class and 2 page layout wrapped up together in one!

Class fee is $15 per person and I'll be teaching it at Scrapbook New England in Laconia NH, Creative Escape in Peabody MA, our Just Scrappin weekends in June and September, and both Cool Crops Glastonbury weekends in September.  Hope you can join me for one of these classes!

Keeping it Simple: A Perfect Winter 2 Page Layout

The end of 2017 is only a couple of days away; hard to believe the year has flown by, yet again!  I've been off my day job this week and it's been a fabulous week to rest, relax, recharge and get ready for the new year!  And speaking of new years.....

I have completed the design of my new winter 2 page layout!  I'm keeping it simple and focusing only on the papers, stickers, and adhesives for this class - no technique, just keeping it simple.  As a result, I'm dropping the price of the class from my usual $15 to $12 per person for this class only!  Hope you will join me to create a quick, simple, straight forward 2 page layout!  I will be teaching this class at Cool Crops Cromwell, Andover, and Portsmouth, and Just Scrappin in February.

In addition to this class, I will also be teaching an Art Journaling/Mixed Media 101 class for $20.  The sample below shows techniques we will use; everyone's page will be different!

New Vintage Findings Fall Layout class

Happy summer!  This has been a strange one for me and I can't believe Fall is right around the corner.  What threw me off was that we went to Hawaii in May, then had our hardwood floors re-done in June, along with getting all new living room came me no time to do the usual things I do late spring and early summer, like plant a garden, and spend cooler mornings out on the deck....our smoker and BBQ also died this summer, so we haven't cooked out at all either!  But enough whining from me.....I'm posting to show you my new class coming this fall!

For $15 per person, we build a 2 page layout using Simple Stories Vintage Findings papers and stickers along with core'dinations paper and distress oxides.  There is also a surprise with this project that I will save for when you take the class with me!  I'll be teaching it at all crops in September and November that I'm vending at (see my schedule to the right of this post).  Hope you decide to join me!

Ken Oliver Make N Take

So.....I am pleased to announce that the media board I ordered for the Make N Take I have been planning finally arrived today!  That means I will be able to offer it at the upcoming crops - yay! We use Ken Oliver Color Burst, Liquid Metals, and his new Mineral Burst product!  Made on a 4x4 Media Board, the cost is $2 per square.  We'll do this any time during the scrapbooking weekend.  Below are a couple of samples that I made (still slightly wet), but you can pretty much mix any colors together!  Hope you give it a try!
