Scrapp'n Savvy Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Scrapp'n Savvy Blog Hop! During this hop, you will learn about each teachers classes at the store and be eligible to win FREE class sessions. To enter, you must leave a comment on EACH teachers' blog and then return to the Scrapp'n Savvy blog and leave a comment that you have completed the hop. We will also be sharing with you information about our classes and techniques and tips that we used to create our "HOME" banners!

I teach a regular monthly class at Scrapp'n Savvy called Everday Layouts.  In class we complete two single page  layouts and one double page layout.  I provide tips and ideas for coordinating pages.  We do lots of different and fun techniques including painting, misting, sewing, distressing, and much more!  The pages I create are general in theme so that you could use them for a bunch of different types of photos.  I tend to scrap "moments" rather than "events".  Here are some pages that we have created in class in the past few months:









I will also be teaching a SPECIAL technique class in May called "Misting Magic".  I will be discussing different types of mists, and we will be creating three pages with a bunch of different mist techniques.  You will learn a LOT about this medium and also get a bottle of mist in your class kit!

Now onto my banner:
I decided to go with a bright color palette that would be perfect for year round and that could brighten up my space.  I went with a bright sunshine yellow, teal blue, and moss green.  Then I added some pops of red with paper and paint on the hearts.  On each tag, i typed up some quotes about "home" and glued them in strips.

I covered each letter with paper, inked the edges and outlines the letters with a black pen.  Then I added some crackle medium here and there for some texture.
For the muslin flower, I stamped with with a texture stamp with black StazOn ink (so it would run when I misted it) and then misted it with yellow mist.  I also wrapped each letter in some areas with black embroidery thread.




This felt bird I misted with green mist and covered the wings with paper.

On the acrylic bird, I stamped with with StazOn and painted the wings blue.  Both of the birds came from a Basically Bare pack of bird embellies.


More tags and detail of the crackle on the letter.


And finally the twine butterfly...
