4th Creativity Escape class peek!

Our 4th class peek for the retraet this weekend is for those who enjoy getting really inky, spritzy and messy fingers!!  This is an artsy layout to the max!  We will start with some gorgeously soft and subtle patterned paper and then using gesso, masks, inks, sprays and water we will change it into a gorgeous grungy background - but don't panic, you are in control so you can keep it gently distressed or go all out!  Throw in some chipboard gears, metal cogs and real vintage watchparts and you have the makings of a couple of hours of full-on fun.  The sample design uses a single 6" x 4" portrait photo which was changed to black and white with a high contrast (strong images will work best for this class).  The theme is very loose but the clock parts and gears lead more towards a 'time' based title for your photo which could be pretty much anything you want to scrapbook.

The kit contains; cardstock, 2 sheets of double sided patterned paper, a mask, a pack of chipboard gears, a piece of muslin fabric, metal gears, vintage clock pieces, cotton tape, a whole pack of green flowers and some white flowers.

You will need to bring; a short bristled brush to use for stencilling with paint, a water spritz bottle, a heat gun, a black ink pad.  If you have inks and/or shimmer sprays in greens/yellows/blues you might want to bring them so you don't have to wait to share the class equipment.

Available to use in class will be; Sizzix cogs dies (to save tedious cutting of paper to cover the chipboard cogs in the kit!), metallic rub-on creams, gesso, shimmer sprays, Distress Stain.  We will also have an alphabet die available so you can cut your own bespoke title for your page.

Here is a smattering of what we have in store.......
