BIG News - New BIG Picture Classes Instructor

I've been keeping a secret for many long months, and now I can finally share the news...I'm one of the newest instructors with Big Picture Classes! WooHoo! I'm over the moon excited about this new opportunity to teach and provide instruction.

Big Picture Classes is an online classroom whose focus is to bring the best and most innovative craft classes to the masses, all accessible from the comfort of your own home and at your preferred pace. Big Picture Classes features classes geared towards art journaling, card making, scrapbooking, photography, mini albums, DIY, and more!

One of the biggest benefits offered by Big Picture Classes is the price. The cost is $9.95/month and this small fee gives you access to every single class on their site! Imagine taking as many classes as you want each month, all for only $9.95! And your first month is free! Amazing! You can find out more about the membership benefits here.

My class will be released on December 26 (Merry Christmas to you!) and Big Picture Classes will start promoting the class on December 19. Here's a bit more about my class along with a few teaser photos of the projects we'll be creating.

Using Stencils to Create Textured Backgrounds and Stunning Focal Points

During this class we will review stenciling techniques using a variety of mediums, including Distress Inks, acrylic paints, embossing paste, and ink sprays. The class consists of six lessons, creating the following:
  • A greeting card using stencils with Distress Inks; a quick tip on water coloring with Distress Inks will also be discussed.
  • Utilizing acrylic paint with stencils to create an art journal page.
  • Embossing paste adds touchable texture to art projects and is a perfect companion for stencils. We'll create two tags during this lesson.
  • Creating backgrounds using ink sprays and using those backgrounds to make a scrapbook page.
  • Combining all of our techniques into a two-page art journal spread, which will also demonstrate how to use stamps as focal point images.
Here's a sneak peek at just a few of the projects...

I'd love to have you give Big Picture Classes a try and would be honored if you selected my class as one of the first classes you try. Please take a peek and let me know what you think...Thanks so much! Happy Crafting!!
