Do you like to discover new papers and embellishments on the market? Do you like to decorate chipboard? Do you enjoy playing with new mixed-media? Maybe you are looking for new ways to finish your pages? Here is your chance to play with papers, chipboards, lace, flowers and try new mists and masks.
During my class, you will work on two layouts. You can expect to find the newest and hottest products from Europe in your kit. Lovely, romantic papers from Inkido/Papercraft Scandinavia and 13 arts, fantastic chipboards from Wycinanka and much more.
