Mixed Media Class

Good Morning!
Our first mixed media class will be on Saturday, May 4th from noon to 3pm at Allyscraps in Plainfield.

I want to clarify what this class will accomplish: you will make an 8x10 inch completed canvas, using scrap book papers, paint, ink, stamps, book paper, and a black pen. NO TWO CANVASES WILL BE ALIKE!!! It is not possible to duplicate a canvas exactly. I wanted to say that, because I have taught card and layout classes before. And I know that some ladies get upset if their card or layout turns out different. Your canvas will be your individual creation.

What we will show you is how to layer a canvas. What goes first, suggestions as to what you could add to it later if you so desire. You will receive a template for a girl, and I will have a variety of sayings that can be added.

For this class, you must bring a heat gun or hair dryer, a black permanent ink pad, such as Staz-on or Archival Ink from Ranger, and a pair of scissors. We will not supply any of those 3 items if you don't have them.

What we will supply: the canvas, papers, paint, brush, Mod Podge, a variety of stamps to use, typed sayings, a Sharpie pen and tons of suggestions. All Allyscraps supplies must stay at the store to be used for future classes.

The cost of this class is $23. Please note it is 3 hours long, and will be fast paced. We will cover a lot of ground in the 3 hours. To reserve your spot prepayment is required. Please leave your phone number with us. I will call prior to class to remind you of what to bring.

This is a fun project! Hope to see you in class.
Cathy and Linda
