Workshops in Kansas at Stamper’s Ink!

My last workshops of 2010 are coming up the first weekend of December.  I'm heading back to a favorite haunt, Stamper's Ink in Shawnee, KS, for an InkFest weekend.

My workshops are on Friday and Saturday and are shown below.  Contact the store for more information on dates, times.

Vintage Taste of Home – This 10-piece easel album, featuring Tattered Angels Fascination Folder album pages, is a great way to incorporate your love for stamping, inking and airbrushing into your holiday décor or to use as a gift. Learn how to use Distress Inks, metallic Paint Dabbers, Glitter Mists and Rock Candy Crackle Paint to make stunning backgrounds, resists as well as airbrushing with Copic Markers to create depth and dimension on the chipboard, acrylic and cardstock surfaces of this project.  An acrylic easel and jump rings are used to display your finished project. Vintage images, elegant embellishments, lace and ribbon and more are used to decorate a project that would make a great gift for Grandma or addition to any holiday home.  You can use it as a holiday journal, traditions and a recipe easel album.  It’s just that scrumptious!

What to bring: Trimmer, scissors and your favorite wet and dry adhesives.

Copic: What? How? & Wow!  What is so special about Copic markers?  These markers go way beyond coloring stamped images to multi-surface applications on cardstock, transparencies, fabric and more surfaces than you can imagine.  Learn about the different styles of markers, and how the markers work, without the revealing brushstrokes so often associated with marker coloring.  Unlock the secrets to choosing from the incredible 334 colors for blending and shading.  Hands-on practice using four blending techniques that build upon each other and culminate with a three page handout that is yours to keep for reference and practice.  An airbrushing demonstration will also be included as time allows.  Class taught by Sally Lynn MacDonald, 2008-2010 North American Certification Trainer and Design Team member for Copic Marker / Imagination International.  This is an in-person version of the self-paced workshop soon to be available on Big Picture Scrapbooking / Classes website.

Supplies Students will need:
A pen/pencil for note-taking.  All materials are provided for use during workshop.

Copic Intermediate Coloring Topics /  Card Buffet  – I've recently returned from the Copic Intermediate Certification in Chicago.  Now I've created a brand new workshop to help you take your Copic skills further with 3 hours of creating holiday cards with gorgeous papers, lace, flowers, and the 'buffet’ of delectable embellishments…all laid out complete with crystals, leaves, buttons, ribbon, bling and flowers!  We will be covering intermediate topics in depth, including working with reds, coloring whites, shadows and light sources, textures and blender pen techniques.  All materials are supplied – and as a special treat…we’ll be coloring along with the latest Riley holiday release!  P.S. I’ve been scouring the world for Seasonal Grungeboard and holiday flowers for the class.  You will be in for a treat!

What to bring: Trimmer, scissors and your favorite wet and dry adhesives.

Inked & Encausticated Journey – In my travels I’m always on the lookout for fabulous techniques and the funkiest new way to display your art… and in this three-hour workshop we will be filling ten niches of this incredible metal vintage-style receipt holder from 7Gypsies with innovative techniques and wonderful embellishments from the new Avignon collection.  With an amazing mix of Encaustic Wax, Copic Markers and airbrushing, Pan Pastels, and Glimmer Mist, Glam and Glaze…  you will understand why I always say, ‘No Surface Is Safe’.  You will leave with an altered piece that can be adapted for home décor or memory art, and inspired by techniques that you can use ever after.

Each Participant Will Receive:
•             7Gypsies Vintage Receipt Holder – Black
•             A set of Princessa dangling ‘jewels’
•             Book Covers – Paris
•             Book Covers – Roma
•             One of each design from the Avignon collection 6×6 Paper Pack (12 patterns)
•             A set of 10 each, Avignon – Numbered Book Dangles
•             A set of 10 each, Avignon – 97% Complete Tags
•             Along with assorted flowers, and other special goodies I’ve collected just for your use.

Students should bring: If you would like to incorporate any of your own photos, special mementos or trinkets into this project, please feel free to bring them along. Also, bring your scissors, embossing heat tool, 12 inch trimmer, Fabritac or Zip Dry adhesive are necessary.  An acrylic block and waterbrush are very useful as well as a Tiny Attacher stapler and Archival Ink in Jet Black.  These may be purchased from the store and I will have some to share as well.

I look forward to returning to Stamper's Ink and the area where I grew up.  I don't even have to click my heels together.
