The Moon & Marti.........

IMG_6260Marti Jones took the BLENDING BRUSHES CLASS that I held last night at six.  This was a Blending 101 Class and there were six projects with the goal of learning the 'how to' of the new blending brushes that are on page 70 in Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog.  (The order number for the brushes is $153611, $12 for three brushes.)

I got a text from Marti this afternoon and it said, "I was looking at the brushing projects we did last night and I'm so impressed!  Mikie (Marti's husband) didn't believe I had done the moon one myself, he said it looked professional!  Thanks for teaching!


Blending Brushes 102 Class

Yesterday I showed you my studio 'bulletin board' with the pictures of six of the twelve techniques for my Blending Brushes 101 Class.  Below is a similar picture showing the second six of the twelve techniques that I teach in my Blending Brushes 102 Class.  The Class will be on Saturday, May 15, at 1 PM in the Cat/Art Studio.  EMAIL ME TO SIGN UP NOW.


I also mentioned that I have a Blending Brushes PDF.  If you are unable to take a class this might be of help to you as you begin to use these fabulous brushes.  I send it to everyone who does take the class and ask that they read it in advance of coming to class.  I think it is very helpful.  Let me know if you have any questions.  I am certainly not an expert but I do love the brushes and the results they create!


Blending Brushes Class 101

IMG_6215You can find our fabulous BLENDING BRUSHES on page 70 in the Mini Catalog!  They are so soft and easy to use ~ much better than sponges or sponge daubers ~ you will love them.  My next 101 CLASS is on Friday, April 30, at 6 PM in the studio.  The class will be small and you will need to bring your brushes with you (or, I may have brushes that you can get as part of the class ~ just let me know).  I have four stampers signed up for the class but the class can hold six so if you would like to join us ~ give me a call ~ 641-9354.

In the 101 CLASS you will learn six techniques.  The picture below (my studio bulletin board) shows samples of the techniques along with an information card describing the technique and providing some 'how to' hints.  You will have the cards and make the samples in class.  More information on the 102 CLASS and a PDF for you tomorrow!
