Class details are still being finalised but thought we would give you a little insight into a couple of the classes. We would like you start looking in your scraps and putting away a few things to bring along with you to Unmasked. All product WILL be supplied to do the class and we will have a stash of the following things to share but a couple of the classes are designed to show you how you can use up some of your own personal stash – therefore if you have any of the following that you love or something that means something to you, and still haven’t used them, well now is the time– they will come in handy for one of these classes – these won’t necessarily be held in this order.
Class One: A WOMAN ON A MISSION(Sherry Mendoza)
Sherry Mendoza is from Sydney, she is part of the Tattered Angels, Helmar and White with 1 design teams and until recently the Technical Editor of Scrapbooking Memories.
She is the organiser behind Your Creative Journey http://www.yourcreativejourney.wordpress.com/ where she arranges workshops from local and international artists. Check out this as there may be some classes you would love to attend – after Unmasked of course!!!
In this class the lovely Sherry will teach you how to make an arty journal out of ----- ----- (try and guess – i wouldn’t have believed it unless i saw it with my own eyes) you WILL be getting your hands dirty (come on girls try to get over it and to get used to the idea – hmmm messy hands – i love mess) using glimmer mists, glimmer glams and paint. You will also learn how to use up your stash of bits and pieces and there will be journalling involved!
So if you have any of the following – stash them away.
- Tim Holtz or 7 Gypsies masking tape (only if you have it already – don ‘t go out and buy) – OK you can if you must.
- Old Rubons – black or white
- Alpha rubons
- Various alpha stickers in a variety of colours and sizes
You don't have to bring above if you don't have - we will have a stash of things to share - but you may have some of your own that you would like to use....
Class Two: SHE is an ANGEL in Disguise (Melissa Kennedy and Al Hannah)
She is an angel in disguise – (NO im not talking about myself), She is something, made from nothing,
She is delicate, but still strong,
She is torn but still together,
She holds pieces of the past and the future,
She is a reminder that all things are possible,
She is a work of art – YOU!
Gosh its awkward writing about yourself but for those of you who don’t know us, we both work for Kaisercraft and have taught at numerous expos, conventions both here in Australia and o/seas.
In this class we are going to have lots of fun going completely off the page and onto a canvas.
Before we give too much away we would like you to start looking in your stash for any of the following;
- old dress making patterns (tissue paper – only need one)
- any stencils or masks that you love. We will have some but you may own a favourite
- any lace, paper doilies or buttons etc that holds any sentimental meaning and would like to include on a piece of artwork
- any old fave rubons etc
- any favourite printed paper that you LOVE but haven’t brought yourself to use – though bear in mind this will get ripped.
As with Sherry’s class we will supply a table worth of products to share but feel free to bring some of your favourites along if you have any – again this will show you how to use up some ‘older” things that you have lying around and turn them into something completely in vogue now.
You will need for this class;
- a desire to get dirty….lol (hands only girls)
- a photograph of yourself (well just from neck up) Head to be approx. 4cm wide, 5cm in length…
Class Three: Wall Art with Lynette CarrollFor all of you who are attending Unmasked we are really excited to announce that Lynette Carroll WILL be coming down for the weekend and is going to teach one of the workshops. And OMGosh, – its stunningly gorgeous. If you know Lynette she does the most amazingly intricate stunning beautiful (do you get the picture) projects and both Al and I were extremely excited when she agreed to come and take part in the weekend.
For those of you who don’t know Lynette, she is a former scrapbook store owner and has taught at trade shows and consumer conventions extensively throughout the United States and in Japan, The Netherlands and Australia.
Lynette has also been a design team member for EK Success Brands (including Martha Stewart Crafts, Inkadinkadoo, EK Success and Dimensions) and Cosmo Cricket in the United States and Delish Designs in Australia.
We saw a little snippet of what she has in mind for you all and it has blown us away – YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS CLASS. Not only are you going love the project but you are going to be using product that has not even been released here in Australia yet and quite possibly be the first to use this collection in a class.
Further information on this class will follow soon. Stay tuned.
