Dina Wakley Dyan Revealey Mixed Media Scrapbook Celebraties Wendy Vecchi

The Celebs are Circling the Building….

Written by Michelle Mccosh

Exciting news to share – we’ve got many of our special guest teachers booked set for the year!!

First up – Holy Bangers and Mash!!!!  The highly anticipated return of Dyan Reaveley will be on May 11th and 12th – not soon enough for us!

These are the classes she’ll be teaching:

Using Imagery in Your Journaling: 5/11/2013 10am-2pm

In my art journal I use a lot of imagery from magazines, books, old journal pages etc. Where do you start and how do you alter them to make them your own? You will be working with images that I will provide and also selecting your own from my many magazine sources. Cutting and sticking has never been so much fun!

Journaling with Silhouettes: 5/11/2013 3:30pm-7:30pm

Silhouette imagery is big in journaling at the moment, but where do you start?? You start with the Dylusions silhouette stencils and masks. We will be writing, spraying, inking, painting and stamping in them, on them and through them. You will also learn how to create your own silhouettes to give your pages that unique look.

Sorry for the inconvenience but the requested event could not be found on May 11, 2013.

Couture Journaling: 5/12/2013 10am-2pm

This workshop is everything you need to know about the Dylusions range of Couture clear stamps. Bring a touch of glamour to your pages with the fashion images. Learn how to make each stamp look totally different by adding patterns to the material. We will be stamping, masking, painting, doodling, adding other imagery and elements to create fabulous pages.

Anatomy of a Page: 5/12/13 3:30pm-7:30pm

Are you intrigued by the art journaling phenonoma but unsure where to start?

Do the pages look too complicated for you to even contemplate where to begin?

This is the class for you. We will break down the journal page into easy bite size steps. Starting with a background, stamping borders and journal lines, adding collage elements and doodling.

And then we will do it again and again, each time adding a new twist or element until you feel totally at ease and raring to go.

I’ve already decided which ones I want to take… All of them!  They sound SO fun, I can hardly wait till May!

Nathalie Metevier

Nathalie visited us last year and everyone just loved her classes, so we just had to have her back! Nathalie has been wowing stampers for years with her innovative and fun techniques – in fact, she is the stamper that first inspired Michelle to learn to stamp!

So much to plan for, so little time!  These events will be on us before you know it, so make sure to pen these ladies into your calendar as they are simply not to be missed!!!
