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.

Spring is hopping!

Good Morning!

Lots going on at Allyscraps. Cathy will be sending an email out soon announcing the new spring classes. These will be for beginning Mixed Media canvases. We will do one canvas, from start to finish, in this class. You will learn how to use scrapbook papers, embellishments, Mod Podge, inks, stamps, and paint. Whew!

Towards the end of April, we will have a demo of Dylusion sprays. This will be on a Saturday, and I will demonstrate on one of Dyan's Dylusion Journals. Having a lot of fun with these. I warn you, this is highly addictive!

We have several ideas percolating for future classes. Stay tuned!  And just in case you heard we are closing, the answer is NO! Cathy is getting ready to close down the old website, where you could purchase product. She is replacing it with a new website.

As a reminder, we are open Wednesday through Saturday, 11am to 5pm.
Thanks for stopping by.
