Getting Smashed and tINKering all in ONE Day!

Smashed is a relatively new class I teach at Michaels. I wasn't so sure about this at first but now it has to be one of my favourite classes to teach.

Course Objectives      

• Create and answer journaling prompts for expressing your artistic self. 

My totally decorated Smash Book

• Use the SMASH Pen for Zentangle, lettering techniques and doodles.

What the book looks like before...
I made the book band with stretchy ribbon and Martha Stewart Clay 

  •  Alter SMASH Book pages to create interactive pockets and envelopes.

and NOW for tINKer time!

Course Objectives for tINKer time Distress & Shimmer Class: 

  • Use Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Ranger Perfect Pearls to create altered tags to use as page embellishments, on cards or an art display. 
  •   Build backgrounds with a variety of distress techniques then add stamping for a finishing touch.
  •   Leave this class with an  understanding of Distress Ink properties and the versatility of Perfect Pearls.
  •  Use something as simple as water for  a different result each time.

We work with tags - off-white or white work the best. 

Mavis did an amazing job with all the new techniques!

And, as every tINKer time class should begin: with freshly made raspberry sorbet created by chef extraordinaire Mavis Lee.  She spoils me rotten!

  1. It was great meeting you at breakfast at BlogHer. I only came that small group of crafters while there. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit to NYC. I am glad you shared your blog. I came across your tags and I love distressing and tags. Do you do the monthly tag over at Tim Holtz's blog? Your work is lovely.

    1. It was wonderful to meet you, Winnie. I love the look of your blog - clean and fresh! Thanks for stopping by mine.


It's nice to get feedback.
