CKC-St. Louis (Part 2)

Class #3 "Think Big Canvas Class"

This class was a "Quick Quote" and Canvas class

We used Quick Quotes, Powder Puff Chalk Inks, Canvas, Ribbons, and several die-cut tags and Canvas embellishments. We were taught how to distress canvas and the tags. The accordion style project holds 23 tags, 6 canvas pieces. Two canvas boards on each end, a canvas button on center of the canvas flower, canvas heart, a canvas tag, and a canvas photo anchor. Under the photo anchor is a folded love heart. I will put pictures in the heart later.
Instructor from Quick Quotes -Michelle

Class #4 - "Always & Forever"

This class was a mini acrylic album class using Prima Papers.

I fell in love with their old, shabby chic looking paper, some of the paper reminded me of Grandma's house, and some of the houses that I lived in as a young girl. The techniques we used in this class included inking, sanding, working with transparencies and adding dimension and depth with flowers and chipboard embellishments.

Paula and I fell in love with two new tools that we were introduced too. We discovered 2 amazing new tools for scrapbooking: Souffle pens and Stickles. Souffle pens by Sakura write dimensionally, and Stickles
a wonderful glitter glue that adds glitter to your project.

We used the Souffle pens to add the "dotted" outline on the acrylic page. Stickles added the glitter to the "Love" on our page.

We also made these lovely paper flowers. The album consisted of 2 acrylic pages and 3 chipboard pages.

We used the beautiful Prima papers to cover the chipboard album pages and the above paper flowers.

Another beautiful Prima paper covered chipboard page. This page also has the Stickles on it..

I will post my last post tomorrow on "Our First Adventure to CKC - St. Louis. The convention is an experience that every scrapbooker, and altered art lover needs to experience at least once. I know I am hooked and will probably go again.

Sweet dreams,
