Meet scrapbook artist Wilna Furstenberg and learn more about using your class as a reference, with techniques you can return to again and again. Then dive into techniques for adding layers to your layouts with creative uses for clay, rub-ons, blendable pigment sticks and ribbons.
Bring out your inner child by drawing with crayons, then add sophistication with paint resist. Wilna shows how to enhance a chipboard title with gold embossing powder, then add interest to your page with artful paint spatters and stamping. A black-and-white photo adds visual balance.
Take your stencils to a new level of texture by using molding paste instead of ink! With Wilna's guidance, use pigment sticks such as Gelatos to create a colorful background for your stencils, made with a cutting machine or by hand. Layer paper butterflies, one of Wilna's exclusive cut files, to add even more dimension!
Play with air-drying clay to create embellishments for your pages. Wilna uses cookie cutters to create charming flowers that can be outlined with ink and colored with acrylic paints. Use them to make a garden of dimensions in your work!
Texture upon texture adds depth to your pages. Follow along with Wilna as she uses layers of acrylic paint and roller stamps to create a base layer, then builds up the page texture with stamped heavy gel that dries clear. A selection of fun embellishments completes the page.
Letterpress work looks so professional, yet it's easy to do with Wilna's guidance and a hand-crank embossing machine. Create your own templates using cut files to make cute cards for page embellishments or even make your own stationery! You'll also see how to work with a grid layout.
Try silkscreening a stencil with acrylic paints. Wilna demonstrates how to prepare your stencil and paints, and how to print with the silkscreen for a beautiful and precise effect. Embellish your work with ephemera and photos for a three-dimensional page you'll want to frame!
