Scrapbooking 101: Make Your Own Background

  • The Paper & Ink Boutique 171, 5330 - 72nd Ave SE Calgary Canada (map)

Instructor: Jenn Gagne

Class Fee: $ 25


 class description – In this class we are going to get messy with mixed media to create out own backgrounds.  We'll talk about all the different mixed media products out there, and how to use them to create your own custom backgrounds for any layout.



What to Bring:  The store is filled with everything you need to get messy with mixed media, from gesso, to inks, sprays, water colours, texture pastes and so on.  You'll need some white cardstock, and a piece of pattern paper (that you will be altering).  Please bring any mixed media you might have at home that you would like to play with, as well as brushes, palette knives (or an old plastic gift card), stencils, stamps and inks, a heat tool (if you have one),  scissors, paper trimmer (suggested, but not required), adhesive (tape runner, wet glue, whatever you prefer), thickers for a title, a journalling pen, and scratch paper for notes.



What I will bring: some punches and stamps for everyone to share.  Various types of mixed media products as examples, and plenty of inspiration!
