I'm really excited to be one of the teachers for the upcoming Studio Calico Toolbox class! We've been working hard behind the scenes to get everything ready for the class, and it's looking awesome so far. The class projects? Insanely good :)
Here's a bit of info from the class description:
Fill your crafting toolbox with cool tips on stitching, mixed media, misting and digital from four technique masters. Amy Tan, Celine Navarro, Geralyn Sy and Shanna Noel will each spend a week in August teaching you the ins and outs of their favorite techniques.
You'll also have access to some amazing digital files, including digital papers from Studio Calico, a template from Catherine Davis, printable stitching templates from Amy Tangerine and Hello Forever, digital stamps from Shanna Noel, cut files and printables from In A Creative Bubble (me!). Below are some of the files...you can view all of them here.
I'll be the teacher for the week on misting, and we'll be doing some fun stuff with masking. We'll also learn how to do a resist technique and I'll share some other mist ideas. I used to be wary of mists, but after playing around with them, they are awesome, versatile, and can add a punch of color to any project!
Here's a quick photo I snapped of one of the class die-cut files in action - as a mask! A silhouette cameo isn't necessary for the class but it's a fun option to be able to cut your own die-cut masks like I did here.
And here's a sneak of my project with the resist technique. I pulled out different shades of blue Mister Hueys for this layout :)
Studio Calico is also running an awesome promotion: through July 24, every student who signs up will be able to pass on a FREE spot in the class to a friend. This includes the students that are already signed up - the codes will be emailed out on 7.25.
I also have a spot in the class to give away right here! All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post telling me your favorite mist color(s) ;) (For the record, mine are currently Dewey and Shine!)
I do hope you'll be able to join us in the class. You can check out what the other teachers have to say over on their blogs:
