STENCIL BOOT CAMP (3 hours $45) 5:30 to 8:30 pm, Thursday, May 1st.
Stencils play a big part in so many mixed media projects and the creative 
possibilities are endless! In this workshop we will explore some of those 
possibilities using a variety of techniques and mediums from Viva Décor, Ranger 
and Art Anthology…so not only will you learn how to get the best use out of 
your stencils, but a LOT of product knowledge as well! We will go beyond the 
basics and create with some of my favorite and more advanced stencil techniques. 
We will be working in 6x6 format with instructions for each technique on the 
backs of each page to create a collection to reference. 
**Basic tool kit should always be brought to each class including scissors, 12” paper trimmer, Ink Blending Tool with foam, pencil and a variety of adhesives…Glossy Accents is always recommended…anything more specific is listed at the end of each class description.
