Geometric Patterns and Embossing Powders

This class involves the use of many products that produces the multiple finishes and techniques designed by Maria Dellos.  We will design on five shards that you take home finished.  They can later be cut to create jewelry pendants, name tags or just to keep as a reminder for future projects.  I guarantee to inspire you with many new designing techniques.

This is an all day class with intense and enjoyable learning.  All the products and material used in this class is provided in your kit.  A colorful step-by-step instruction pamphlet is also supplied for you to follow in class and to take home.

The first two shards show the lovely colors of Alcohol Inks.  You will see more of these examples in class so you can decide what colors you would like create on your shard.  This is done on one of the five shards unless you want to make the two with alcohol inks and eliminate one of the other shards.

 The Kokopelli Shard contains a technique I created using two different ink colors that is share in class.  We will use Heat Activated Glue and silver leafing.  This is a very exciting technique that I am sure you will love. 

 The Geometric Shard is really exciting and I know you will love how this is done.  It is easier than it may look, but with my direction, you will create this attractive geometric design with me.  You will use Heat Activated Glue along with several embossing powder colors.  We will use paper punches and scrapbooking scissors to create various geometric patterns. 

The 5th shard is to be the latest of my techniques offered at the time of this class.

 Embellishments may vary slightly due to beads availability.  You my shop my store during my visit.
