This comfortably distressed 6x9" mini-book will be created with a mix of fun materials and media including denim, corrugated cardboard, chipboard, kraft paper, Basic Grey new "Out of Print" line, burlap, Crafter's Workshop Templates, embellishments made from Tim Holtz dies and texture fades, a little paint and more...

During the creative process, we will concentrate on techniques using Tim's new DISTRESS STAINS, creating some interactive elements plus some fun and unique stamping techniques...Oh, and just wait until you see how we are going to distress the denim!!

By the end of class you will have a great chunky book brimming with techniques!

**NOTE** PLEASE wear OLD clothes as we will be incorporating bleach in to some of the techniques!!
Please bring to class: a variety of adhesives (Helmar's 450 Craft Glue or Fabri-tac or Beacon's 3 in 1 works great for denim and burlap is you have it), Heat gun if you have one, paper trimmer, scissors and something to punch holes such as a Big Bite or crop-a-dile.


$45 (3 hours class)

Take your creativity up a few notches with this little book that packs a punch with all of the techniques you will learn!

You will construct this chubby little mini-book from a Tim Holtz Die but we will be focusing on an easy stitched book binding technique and working with Distress Stains in a variety of ways. Plus we will mix in some Idea-ology embellishments, Sticky Back canvas, my favorite Basic Grey Paper, Tim's stamps from Stamper's Anonymous, Texture fades, fabric, Stickles and put it all together to make a fabulous little book ready for you to scrap or add your art journaling!

They say the best things come in small packages and this is no exception...the ideas and techniques in this class will have your mind imagining all of the things you will be able to create next!!

(Note: Title and words in the charms are optional and you will have choices in class)
*Please bring a variety of adhesives including something strong such as Glossy Accents or Multi medium, scissors, pencil, tapestry needle if you have one, paper trimmer and an awl or something to poke small holes with
