I've never been to Scrapfest... They inconsiderately schedule both events during tax season... But seeing that I love Kerry (one of the owners), I will not harbor any ill feelings... But one day, when I win the lottery and sell this damn practice, I'll be at every Scrapfest whether they want me or not!
By the way, Scrapfest is February 25, 26 and 27. Here's the link: http://www.scrapfestproductions.com/
And IF I was going to Scrapfest next weekend, I would absolutely be taking Nicole Petersen's class. She is a super duper RoCKStar! Here is a description of her class:
Capture a Bit of Summer Canvas Hanging
Create this fun and fresh wall-hanging to display your special summer photo. This project is made from a canvas mat with a bit of mist, sand resin, and paint to dress it up! Oh, don't forget the bling and butterflies!
You will learn how to stencil a beautiful design onto canvas using sand resin medium, create a ribbon flower, sprinkle diamond dust, and sew with abandon! Plus, come learn a new twist on using all brands of mists you already have in your stash. Walk away with new techniques that will become part of your everyday scrapping or altered art creations.
Please bring all of the following besides BYOB: Misting Mat (any brand), Paint brushes - small and medium sizes, Tiny Attacher or small, regular stapler, Zip-Dry, Ranger ink applicator with sponge, Ranger Distress Ink (Linen, Corduroy, and/or Tea Bag), Paper Distresser, Paper Piercer,Vertical 3.5 x 5, 4 x 6, or 5 x 7 photo; Optional: sewing machine -- please only bring to class if you were already bringing your machine to Scrapfest, white thread
And for a picture of the canvas and to learn a little more about Nicole (AKA The Rockstar), visit her blog: http://aplaceformescraplog.wordpress.com/2010/02/15/my-scrapfest-class/
Have fun at Scrapfest, and just in case you run into Kerry - could you remind her that June would be WAY better for me - thanks!!!!
