I’ve always wanted to make a memory book in an actual book, using both scrapbook techniques and art journal techniques... a cool place for a little bit of everything from special photos, page protectors, stamping, painting, pockets, sewing, and so much more – this class will offer a wide variety of mixed media techniques in my own “Debby-style” that can be used over and over again in your mixed media, scrapbook, and card-making projects. It's going to be a fun class to play and try new things!
Using one of the Puffin in Bloom children’s classic books, with cover illustrations by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper, and products from Crate Paper and other companies, you’ll learn and play and create a one-of-a-kind memory book. Your kit will be packed with product to use – you’ll even get your own stamp set to use in the book. I’m going to use my book for pictures of happy memories of adventures with my “sisters” – women that have impacted my life from childhood to today with friendship and love! Can you guess which title I’ll be using!
You will have a choice of one of the four titles in the Puffin in Bloom series: Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, Heidi, or A Little Princess. The books are approximately 5” x 7”, and they are all about 1” thick, except Little Women, which is 2” thick. Please specify which book you would like to work in when you sign up. The book is included with your class kit. You can see pictures of the books at Rifle Books.com in order to choose a title. When you sign up, please specify which title you would like to have. If you already have a book that you would like to use for the class, you can still sign up and specify that you will bring your own book, and your class will be discounted by $10.
Student supply list: Please bring the following items to class… 12” paper trimmer, scissors, ruler, pencil, scoring tool, stapler, glue stick, strong tape adhesive (1/4” is perfect), distressing ink (I use a pretty dry Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad), ink-blending tool, non-stick craft mat, Faber Castell Gelato – Guava color, white acrylic paint, a brush, and a variety of things you might want to color with such as watercolor paints, colored pencils, markers, etc, and a favorite washi tape that matches the colors of the book ( for example: pale pink, periwinkle blue, black print, gold, sage green), acrylic block for stamping, black stamp pad (preferably a permanent ink like Ranger Archival Ink or StazOn.), corner rounder, an old gift card or hotel key to paint with, water cup. Optional: Craftsmart acrylic paints in Pink Chiffon, Robin's Egg Blue, Pale Blue, and Ivory (pale yellow)
This class will be taught at select stores beginning at Whim So Doodle in March.
