Sunday September 25th was my Fall Tag Class, (we decided to start calling the class tag technique boot camp). The ladies used alcohol inks, Distress Inks pads, Distress re-inkers, Archival Inks, Distress Crackle paint, Distress Stains, paint Dabbers, Distress embossing powder, and Studio Sticky Back Canvas.
They learned how to make their own custom stamp pad with the re-inkers and cut n' dry felt pad. I showed them how to make wonderful layers of color for backgrounds with 3 different techniques with the alcohol inks. They distressed backgrounds with the Distress ink pads, made a haunted house with the Alterations Rickety House die cut, crackle paint and Distress ink pads. I also showed them how to make a canvas transfer using sticky back canvas, scrapbook paper and water. All in all it was a very busy class. I am glad I gave them all printed out instructions for each tag so they can go home and recreate what they did.
I think one of the favorite techniques was making plaid with alcohol inks and glossy paper. The technique is so easy and the effect is stunning. I am going to do this technique again for my October 2nd class. I think I still have a couple of spaces open for this class. If you are interested please call Wingdoodle and sign up. Everyone seems to really enjoy these classes.
I had people bing their lunch and we took about a 20 minute break and relaxed around the table and talked a little bit. If you are signed up for any of my tag classes please bring a lunch or snack.
I meant to take more pictures of the tags they created but there was no extra time.
