Ink Paper Scissors - Introduction to Mixed Media

February 16th [Thursday] / 6:00 - 9:00
Instructor: Patti
Class Fee: $35.00

Join Patti for an introduction to paper arts... Queen's Ink style. This workshop is the prerequisite to registering for most of our workshop offerings, since the techniques and concepts you'll learn here form the basis for your success in our workshop repertoire. Learn about the various paper types and other surfaces used for stamping and paper arts, explore the wide variety of inks, including a little chemistry lesson about their make-ups, which ink to use on which surface, which to emboss or heat-set (or not!), and see various papercrafting tools in action. You'll discuss adhesives... the importance of selecting the right one for your project, and take the opportunity to use a few different ones. Get your hands a little bit dirty as you have the opportunity to play with some of these inks, papers, and adhesives, and try your hand at heat embossing with stunning results.

Supply List: All supplies will be provided, including a nonstick craft mat, an "inkie-binkie", foam blending tool, and some specialty stamping paper... all of which you will take home! Receive a 10 percent discount on any merchandise you purchase on the day of your class.
