This coming Friday, November the 18th, I am teaching my second workshop of Scrapbook Techniques at Scrappin' Great Deals. The first workshop, we went over methods to alter cardstock to create custom backgrounds. We stamped, embossing, misted and had a lot of fun! Some of my stamps have never seen such use!! This next workshop we will play with a technique called "fussy cutting". That is the term for finely cutting out details from patterned paper such as this, the butterflies were fussy cut from a piece of Bo-bunny patterned paper:
Fussy cut elements add dimension to your layouts, another layer of interest. It is not a difficult skill to learn; you just need practice, practice, practice, but it is quite time consuming. At the workshop, that is what we will do - practice practice practice!! We will go over what scissors to use, when to use an exacto blade, and perhaps most importantly, how to look at a piece of patterned paper and see it's full potential!!
If you would like to join us, there are a couple spots left! Just give the store a call at 519-473-5751 to register by Nov. 16.
