More Christmas Cards Designs

More Christmas Card designs by Kristina Flynn to get you inspired...

Pan Pastels

Pan Pastels are taking the craft world by storm, so Create On Ormond is holding a Masterclass for you to learn more....

"Pan Pastels are one of the latest must-haves for the crafter and mixed media artist; they have been well and truly embraced by the art and craft community because of their versatility and sheer  ease of use. Because these pastels are semi-transparent they blend and layer very easily allowing you to build up fabulous backgrounds for your cards, craft projects or art journals. They are a very forgiving medium  to work with: if you make a mistake you can simply rub it out with an ordinary eraser!" (Kate Crane)

Cassie Bright will  teach you 5 different techniques that you can apply with the Pan Pastels, and you will leave the class with a mini tag book as a permanent reference..

Class is on December 11th, Tuesday, 10.30 until 12.30.
Class cost is $20.00. You must book as seats are limited..

Mixed Media Class

Hello everyone it's been a while since our last blog and the reason being that  we have been very busy creating and organising wonderful and varied papercraft  classes for you to do.
 Scrapbooking and craft in general has a funny way of bringing people together. Last week I met Ruth, a wonderful lady from Adelaide (my home town) and after chatting for a while we discovered we went to the same school at the same time, she was even in my brothers year!  Ruth started scrapping 13 years ago and had her own shop in Adelaide for 3 years. Due to health reasons she had to give the shop up and so continued her addiction to scrapbooking from home where she continues to teach. Ruth describes her style as Shabby Chic/vintage as she  favours everything old worldly and is drawn to colours tones and textures of this look and her other love is dimension.....
Many of you have commented on our Mixed Media Canvas in the shop and would love to learn how this technique is accomplished, so I have been trying to find someone to help you out and guess what Ruth can do!!!
Yes Ruth has created a canvas titled "A stroll in the park" and it is a fantastic introduction to using Mixed Media to create a scene. Ruth is only in Geelong for a short time so please try and get along to either class and learn from a lady with a wealth of experience and a lovely personality to boot.

NEW CLASS  "A stroll in the park" by Ruth Limoux

Are you ready to learn how to learn the following techniques?

  • seal and paint a canvas
  • use crackle paints
  • use distress inks and dimensional magic
  • layer flowers

  • learn how to mould your papers
  • create a shadow box inside your canvas
  • plus a whole lot more.....

 This canvas will become your own as Ruth guides you thru the different mixed media processes. The canvas is in the shop so call in to see for yourself and to book your seat soon...
WHEN: Thursday August 30th 10.30 to 2.30 and Saturday 8th September 10.30 to 2.30
COST: $60.00 canvas size approx A3
What to bring with you if you have it! Craft knife, scissors, dimensional magic, distress inks, staz on inks, stylus ball large, foam tape, tombow multi glue, hot glue gun, heat tool.

Introducing Ruth Limoux

Hello fellow scrappers, my name is Ruth and I am from Adelaide, married to the love of my life Roger, we have 2 wonderful children and a very spoilt 12 yr old boxer Storme.
I started scrapbooking about 13 years ago when one of my daughters girlfriends introduced me to it and I haven't looked back since. Roger and myself have always been photo mad and have boxes of albums full of all out memories. So put that together with all the amazing scrapbooking papers and goodies what do you get..SCRAPBOOKING!!And with that, I am addicted.Rogers job keeps him away from home most of the year so about 2 years ago Storme and myself started travelling with him and I have been  teaching along the way, and on this jopurneyt I have met some wonderful ladies and have made some great friend. My place to share the things that have been going on and what I,m working on or what I've finished is so please drop by and I do love comments so please feel free to leave one.
One last thing I would like to thank Marisa for giving me the opportunity to hold a class at her lovely country cottage hideaway and to meet some more talented ladies.

keep on Scrappin
