D & SG 2

By popular demand, I've been asked to teach this Prima 12x12 Watercolor Canvas workshop. You will layer various mediums, color with Prima's Oil Pastels, learn to use the gorgeous adhesive rub-ons and foils and much more! Limited seating! Call Checkered Cottage to make your reservation.

BYO: paint brushes (1" flat with soft bristles and small round brushes for detail work); palette knife; adhesives; scissors; Crafty Foam Tape; 

Saturday, May 14 @ Checkered Cottage: 2:30 to 5 pm: Stitched Mini-Book $30

This is a twist on an old favorite. I've taught a signature mini in the past but this time we're learning a new version that was just taught to me by our own Mary Meyer. You'll love this as it won't interfere with the book title. Please be on the look-out for a hardcover book with a book title that has meaning to you. IMPORTANT NOTE: We will not be decorating these books. The sample is decorated just as an example. Class supplies include stitching thread, needle and cardstock pages in your choice of black, cream, white or kraft. This is a technique class only.

BYO: Hardbound book with title appropriate for your future decorations; craft knife; cutting mat; adhesive; paper trimmer
