Mixed Media Reverse Canvas
Saturday 27th 10:00am 

Have you thought mixed media projects are beyond your level feeling more of a beginner or not that ‘Arty’?  Well come along to Beck’s Mixed Media reverse canvas class where she will de-mystify the world of mixed media with her no stress approach to layering and getting your hands dirty.

Suitable for all levels you are sure to have the ‘Ahhhh I can do this!’ moment.  In this class we will have fun creating a textured reverse mixed media canvas.  We will be sure to finish in the allotted class time having you walk away with a stunning piece you will find hard to part with while in Beck’s signature teaching style; learning lots of different techniques along the way. 

To create our stunning canvas we will be using various products including, divine IndigoBlu artist quality metallic cottage paints (you will see how truly amazing these are in the class) in a number of ways, Tinby Designs Color Crush watercolour powders, DecoArt Crackle medium, Seth Apter signature dies and IndigoBlu Megaflake to name a few.

Students will receive a pre-class video covering ‘what to bring’ to the class.

Explore Indigoblu 
Friday 26th August 1pm

Explore mixed media with IndigoBlu. In this class we will be creating a mixed media page and separate canvas exploring the use of many different Indigoblu products indluding  IndigoBlu's divine metallic paints, stamps, FlutterGlu and Mega-Flakes!  We will also be teaming that up with the use of Spellbinders dies in some different ways creating loads of fun to be had in class!

Explore Masculine styles class
 OR

Creating cards and layouts for the masculine half can be a little more challenging.  With age often playing a part we will be exploring some tips and techniques for tailoring them to various aged males and also ideas for more masculine styles.  With the cards we will move from little boys to teenage boys through to older men.  Using similar products in varying ways you will be armed with ideas on how you can better tailor masculine cards to age, while still making some really cool looking cards.  If you choose to create the layout you'll learn some tips and ideas for creating more masculine pages while learning new techniques and experimenting with various products along the way.  We will also delve into some mixed media in this class in an effort to help grunge it up, working with sprays, stencils, gesso and texture paste, as well as textures from Shimmerz and Metallic Melts by Tinby Designs.


Come along and create a scrapbook page or 3 cards all designed for you to explore your inner masculine style!

Brisbane Expo class 1 - Watercolour Cards class OR 4 layouts


WOW I can't believe this time next week I will be in the thick of my classes at the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo!  I am going to be a busy lady teaching 9 classes over the three days.  Each of my 3 classes are taught each day and I am already so blown away by the support for my classes.  The journey I have been on has been amazing and I feel so blessed to get to share my passion with so many people around the country!  

The first class I kick off with is truly a jam packed full of techniques and know how with different watercolour products.  This is the class to do if you want to learn benefits of the various forms of watercolours out there and their reason to use over another!  



http://scrapbookexpo.com.au/scrapbook/brisbane/classes-2/room2/

I designed this as a card class so that I could share more different products and techniques... BUT after some requests I have created Scrapbook page versions of the cards, so that the scrapbookers out there can come along 
and knock over 4 layouts in the class.... YES 4 layouts while learning all the 
techniques and having a go with the various products featured in the class!  There is VERY limited spots available.  The Saturday is already sold out!! So I'm not joking when I say get your bookings in!  

Here is a sneak of the projects we will be creating!  You get to choose if you want to do scrapbook pages or cards... OR even bring along your Art journal and feel free to create them in there learning as you go.  My classes are ALWAYS about the learning, BUT I wanted to spoil everyone in this class so EVERY person gets a STAMP AND DIE set!  Yes you get to take them home!
It is such a versatile set like the collection it 
comes from RG - Make Amazing Happen.

 Want to come along to the class?  Just click the button below to go to the booking screen.
