Studio G class peeks

 Here we are with a peek at the Studio G 'Autumn Splendor' class kit.  As I laid everything out Lily decided that she was very interested and would like to join in.  Now this cat legs it at the sound of the camera motor switching on so this was really strange behaviour from her! She must have really taken a liking to the colours in this kit and decided to check them out up close LOL!!

Anyway, this kit is full of gorgeously rich colour, jewel tones of purples and deep magenta are offset by soft greens.  The overall effect is of mossy garden walls with ripe orchard fruits growing over them - get the picture?  We will be featuring one of this years hot trends in this class, ombre!  You'll create an ombre background on resist kraft card and then add layers of patterned papers and flowers for a rich and gorgeous page.  Plus you get to play with one of the most stunning ranges of shimmer sprays we have found (and keep a bottle!!).  Check out the peek.....
The sample design used three identical 6" x 4" portrait photos layered over one another but of course you could just use one if thats all you have.  You'll need a selection of green and purple inks plus a pale beige colour to antique the paper doilies.  The sample used Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves and Old Paper.  Don't worry if you don't have these exact colours but you'll want to have two shades of green - one light and one darker plus a purple. I used a small retro flower punch and liquid pearls to create tiny flowers on the sample - the punch will be available to use in class but if you own a tiny flower punch you might want to bring it along.  I used liquid pearls in pale pink but cream or white would also work.

The kit contains; resist kraft card, 4 sheets of patterned paper, bottle of shimmer spray, large doily, small doily, paper roses, fabric leaves, alphabet stickers - cat not included!!
