Thursday's Dream Schemes/Free Challenge this Week!

This Thursday since it is a free week I am taking a little extra time to showcase some class projects for some upcoming workshops that I'm teaching in Sacramento at The Stamp ARt Shoppe Inc. Roseville Calif. on Memorial Day Weekend.


Design team member Louise Healy gave me permission to use this lovely card as one of the projects. So if you are in the area stop by the store to see the sample boards. This This one is a unique embossing paste and glitter technique.


Design team member Pam Hornschu did this wonderful card using the LG735 tie stencil and I really think the plaid that she achieved using the embossing machine with stencil LX7002 and then stenciled with chalk inks looks like a fabric called "seersucker".  We will also show how to mix pastes and do paste-embossing on acetate. Then also we will work with the Memories Mists to also create plaids with the stripe stencil. Pam will be traveling with me to Sacramento and assisting in the classes. I am looking forward to the "ROAD TRIP" with a design team member.


This fun technique has been shown on the team's blogs several times. We will be taking it a step further and doing some work with foils as well. But here is the LG733 birds stencil done up with transparent glitters form Art Institute's glitters and then stenciled with pigment ink for added detail work. At CHA Julie Makela, my distributor from Australia used the foils on the JAC paper (also known as sticky mounting paper), so I am looking forward to sharing this new technique.

There are two other classes I will be teaching has to do with hand embossing and machine embossing on metal with the stencils, how to do it and how to color the metal. The other class is called "Full Circle" and shows a new technique with a material that has been around for a long time. If I don't see you in Sacramento (Roseville) on Memorial Day weekend stay tuned on how to do some of these new techniques. To find out more about the classes, dates and times go to The Stamp Art Shoppe's web site and click on events.

Hope you have time to see what the design team has done this week. My challenge to you is to leave a comment on their blogs...some of them do this work for the love of sharing their creations and it is nice to have your encouragement. Also if you have time play along ...Mr. Linky is below for just that reason.
