Double Trouble - a 2 for 1 layout special - May 2014

Our layout class for the month of May is 'Double Trouble' - a 2 for 1 special. Yes, that's right - 2 layouts for the price of 1 class.

Both layouts incorporate the same layered, mixed media approach.
Starting from a cardboard base, you will apply modelling paste with lashings of colour mediums and then add layers of cardstock, various chipboard die-cuts, flowers, chain and of course ... charms.

The male themed layout is based on a Green, Black and White palette.  Titled 'Time 2 Graduate' it includes the time (clock charm), a graduation scroll charm and die-cut 2.  Your kit will include the clock charm and numeral 2 - PLUS a relevant charm of your choice from the selection provided ... you just need to add the wording of your choice.   Mine is obviously about my DS's graduation, hence the graduation scroll charm.   If you have a particular word you want to use, please bring that with you (but don't make it too big).  :)

I have created 2 female themed layouts - one in purple and one in pink (you can choose which colour you would like to create).  The ornate die-cut frame has die-cut angel wings on both sides - making it perfect for my DD sleeping and dressed as a fairy.

What do you need to bring to class?

Lunch and snacks (or pop around to the Subway, Noodle Box or Pizza Capers round the corner)  ... plenty of Tea and coffee supplied and the fun we throw in for free!  ;)
Your basic tool kit and adhesives
Black ink
Modelling Paste (I use Mont Marte from most "cheap" shops for $9.99 and trust me it may be a big pot, but you will be hooked and use it for future layouts).

Female Layout
Selection of basic, flat - black, white and your preferred colour - flowers. The ones that will work best are the flat mulberry flowers - you will have some in your stash you can use up. Alternatively you can purchase some from the store. Approximately 12 medium sized ones required.  The larger, prettier flowers are supplied in your class materials. Don't worry if they are not your favourite cause we will be plastering them with modelling paste.  It is more for the shape and a slight bit of colour to show through the mediums

If you are messy like me, bring an apron to protect your clothing.  If you don't like getting your hands dirty (you know who you are! lol) bring some gloves.

Dates don't suit you and your friends!  I am happy to schedule a class for you at a suitable date during May.  I am unavailable Saturdays and the 18th May.

To secure your place in this one-off special double class, you need to make an initial booking deposit of $15 and final payment of $10 is due on the day of the class. Alternatively, you can pay all at once.

Dates are 8th May, 13th May, 25th May.  Estimated class time will be 4 hours
