I am excited to be offering "Get Crafty" again. I ran this in the middle of April and was pleased with how things went. (Survey says participants were generally very happy as well. Please email me if you would like specifics.) There were some people who missed the original sign-ups or were busy during the first class - this one is for you.
My creative style has changed over and over again. Sometimes I am drawn to straight and clean lines. Other times, I love the look of something soft and fluid. I have been addicted to text, paint, letter stickers, textured paper, chipboard, stamps, handwriting, computer journaling, silhouetted photos, black and white photos…the works. I love that with paper crafting you never have to stick to one shape, size, medium or color palette. There is room for everything in scrapbook albums, art journals and mini books.
One change that seems to be fairly permanent in my own scrapbooking evolution is my avoidance of "traditional" scrapbooking tools and products. I can appreciate new product releases, but rarely find myself incorporating them into my projects. I prefer items that I have created. Papers I have hand stamped. Stickers created on my computer. Hand cut titles. My pages are a part of me - and I want more than just the photos to reflect that.
Over two weeks, this class will explore techniques on how to build your projects from the ground up. We will break away from the traditional scrapbooking products and design our own paper and embellishments. Each weekday, there will be a "lecture", a project, an idea to try to that day and an idea to save for future use. In addition, there will be photos, journaling prompts and anything else I come up with.
I have said this before, but I have never been as crafty as I was during the original class. My projects and layouts will still be shown as part of the workshop and I am hoping to find the same inspiration to create many more to share with class participants throughout the two weeks.
The syllabus for this rerun workshop will be the same as last time. Supplies are pretty basic - but I will say having a color printer is a big plus because you can print photos right away.
To sign up, please click the "buy now" button above. WORKSHOP CLOSED. The cost for this 10 day workshop remains the same as last time: $20 USD.
