Sue's Alcohol ink inks Class

This is an extended length class with a lot of new alcohol ink techniques. We will be coloring a tin to store your inks in. Plus you will also learn about the new Yupo paper as compared to glossy cardstock and how versatile it is to work with, as well as cutting out some die cuts from it. Do you know that Yupo paper can also be used to create your own stencils? (That’s another class in itself!) Test your creativity by making several backgrounds, which will include metallic polished stone and faux metal. Believe it or not – you will also be stamping with alcohol ink! If time permits, we will also be experimenting with making a scenery background. This class includes the tin and we will be making 2 finished cards, plus multiple backgrounds for you to take home, including die cuts to make more cards. Come out and play all day! If this class fills, another class will be offered at a later date as we will have to re-stock tins. (The class includes the new Tim Holtz alcohol inks storage tin which we will color. It holds up to 30 bottles of alcohol inks, Stickles, Glossy Accents, etc.) Please pick-up your supply list at the store or email Sue for a copy of it.

Really? Well, those of you who know Barb, know that you can indeed trust her! This class is about trusting Barb to teach you new and fun things that you can do again when you get home. There is no set theme to these classes. Variety is the spice of life! Each class will feature an unexpected material in one of the projects. Each class will teach new techniques with supplies you already own. We all have our "stash" of things, don't we? Let's find new and fun ways to use them. You will take home patterns and/or directions to duplicate ideas you have learned in class. Please bring a basic tool kit (tape, scissors, glue dots, ruler, etc.). Join us for a fun and creative time together. Trust Barb and be surprised!  Instructor: Barb Smith
