An Evening with Tim Holtz (products, that is)

Join me on April 19 from 6- 8:30 & you’ll learn three of Tim’s techniques, while playing with color combinations, layering, masking, spritzing, creating a watercolor look without a brush and coloring with a waterbrush using Distress Inks. This won’t be a project class, but a class of techniques
that you can later use on greeting cards, scrapbook pages and other mixed media projects. Wear old
clothes and plan to get your fingers dirty with gorgeous Distress ink colors.

We will use these products; please bring any that you have. Distress inks, craft sheet, Ink applicator, foam
for the applicator, Mini Mister, Ranger masks, Black archival ink, Ranger sprays, water brush, heat tool.

And of course, bring your class supplies.  Call All About Pictures to register for class: 364-4141.  I hope to see you in class.

Beginning Copic - April

April 11th
6 - 8pm

Its time for our second class, so don't forget to bring your markers from last month and the three new colors for this month.  If you did not attend the class last month and still want to get started, 
Call the store and let us know you're interested and want to get started this month.  I will offer a catch-up session 1 hour prior to class so that you will have some basic knowledge.  There will be a small additional fee to the teacher for this 1 hour session. ($5.00)
Basic class fee is $10.00 to the teacher, plus class supply fee to the store.
Call today and sign up.


Copic 2 for April

APRIL 10th 

Hopefully you can understand what we are going to do by looking at this display board.  This month we will complete one card and have many other images to work with while we practice shadows for folds and pleats in fabric. Sometimes these areas can be tricky  and just need practice.  The colors that I used on the card are oranges and pinks with your basic skin and hair colors.  As always bring all of your markers and card making supplies.  
I also wanted to address some questions that we have been getting at the store that concern new people who want to attend this advanced class.
1.  Do I have to purchase a whole bunch of markers every month:  no, if you have been taking the beginning class you should already have a good base of markers to start with.  I usually give a supply list for the next class so you have the supplies needed one month in advance.  I can usually look at your collection and tell you substitutions that can be used.  
2.  Do I need to attend a beginner class before I can attend the advanced class.: not always, but you need to know the basic concept of blending and terminology so that you are not lost in the class.

If you have question, please call the store and leave a message with your contact information and I will get in touch with you to clarify and answer questions.

APRIL Penny Black Sticker Greeting Card Class

This month's Penny Black sticker card class will be held on Wednesday, April 25 from 6- 8:30 at All About Pictures.  Call the store to sign up - 364-4141. 

The stickers this month are gorgeous! and they certainly celebrate spring. The cards use the brand new Sizzix Circle Flip It die, two of the new Sizzix Framelits, Spellbinders circle die, punches and Flower Soft. Bring your usual class supplies. If you have any of these items, please bring them: Copic Markers YR07 and RV09, Stickles orange, yellow, fruit punch and platinum, and Sakura yellow glaze pen.

Hope to see you in class,
