March 2021 Class and Workshop

So, I decided to shake things up for our March 2021 Class and Workshop. Shaking things up means we were making shaker cards using two different methods. First we used the traditional method of creating the shaker void with a piece of window sheet and foam strips, making this sweet jar shaker card.

The second shaker card was made using the Painted Poppies sequins and a clear envelope instead of the window sheet and foam strips.

I try to teach new and different techniques to my customers. With the other cards we made, I demonstrated what I’m calling a spotlight technique. This is where you create an open diagonal area on the card that goes from a narrow area of focus to a wider one.

The last card for this month’s workshop showcased several of the products in the Final Art Floral suite, and focused on the various ways to apply gilding flakes. This card used the Fine Art Floral designer series paper and the Golden Garden acetate overlay. The layering panel was embossed with the Painted Texture embossing folder. Double sided tape was used for adhering the gilding flakes. While a bit messy, everyone agreed that applying gilding flakes is a much easier process than they imagined.
