Classes local to me near Camberley (Surrey) and Farnborough (Hants)
Autumn 2016

Wednesday 28th November   10 - 12.30  Infusions and a stencil  
Try your hand at stencilling and printing from a stencil using the PaperArtsy infusions, which are watercolour powders that you use straight from the container. Once you have tried the techniques use your results to make up one or more cards to add to your card box. My original can be found here - http://www.bumblebeesandbutterflies.com/2016/07/infusions-and-stencil.html

Monday 17th October     10 - 4  Create inside a frame
Create an opulent looking frame using texture paste, moulds and embossing folders and add a rust technique and lots of painty layers to create some very different effects. This is a very mixed media style and my original sample can be found here - http://www.bumblebeesandbutterflies.com/2016/09/create-inside-frame-at-avj.html

Friday 28th October     10 - 4  Make your own picture frames
We all love having photos in picture frames on display and in this workshop you will make at least two slightly different decorated frames, using greyboard as the base, that you can keep for yourself or give away as Christmas gifts. (I haven’t made the samples for this workshop yet).

Wednesday 9th November     9.30 - 1  Journal pages Seth Apter style
I love the work of Seth Apter and am following his idea of working on black backgrounds for a change. In this workshop we will practice some ideas to make layers and then combine them using media fluid acrylic paints to build up some very interesting pages and add stencilling and diecuts to complete the look. Bring along a journal you are already using or I can provide cut black card for you to make your pages on. My journal is quite large with pages nearly 29 x 21 cms but the techniques we will use will fit any sized page you might want to bring. If your journal has white pages don’t worry you can paint them with black gesso when you get here.
One of my pages can be found here –

Wednesday 23rd November    10 - 4   Mosaic Frame
We will use the Tim Holtz Mosaic die to make up a mini configurations frame. Design and stamp your own tissue wrap to use as the base for the frame and up make your own background before collecting together some embellishments to decorate the mosaic recesses. With an easel stand on the back this will be a great little gift or piece of home décor.
