Cost: $72.00 (includes lunch)
* * * *
Friday  -  October 24, 2014
10:00am – 5:00pm

Sneak Peek!

Imagine Lewis Carroll meets Marion Smith and you’ll find yourself in a magical, whimsical Wonderland!  Our Adventure will begin with an 8”x8” art journal that we’ll make from scratch, and fill with lots of fun, different sized papers, vintage flashcards, tags, and more!  We’ll also be playing with new Milk Paints, Color Washes, and Stencils to create beautiful back drops to showcase our photos, then complete our pages with “clustering” techniques using images and stamps from Tweety Jill, bits and pieces from the new Marion Smith Designs Mad Tea Party paper collection, as well as vintage seam binding that we’ll be hand dying in class!  Among many more techniques, we’ll also be creating lots of easy image transfers to add to our vintage Alice in Wonderland novel pages!  Last, but certainly not least, the cover of our journals will be filled with all sorts of unique flea market finds!  Each kit will include everything you need, but please check the list of basic tools that you’ll need to bring to ensure this workshop runs smoothly and quickly!  This workshop is designed to be “beginner-friendly” but not for the faint of heart J!  With seating limited to only 10 students, you’ll want to call early to make your reservations because this Workshop is sure to sell out fast!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact CraftFusion or email Ellen at

Supplies to Bring:  Basic Craft Kit (BCK), including PAPER TRIMMER; scissors; pencil; ruler; sand paper; paper piercer; your favorite wet adhesive (Ellen recommends The Ultimate or Mono Multi with the green lid); stapler (Tim Holtz mini stapler works well); ink applicators; and Distress Inks (Weathered Wood, Peeled Paint, Victorian Velvet, and Antique Linen or any colors in this same color pallet).  We’ll constantly be using these inks, so having your own as well as possibly one applicator per color will be very helpful.  All other materials and supplies will be provided.
Optional Supplies to Bring:  (The following items will be available for your use, but if you have any you could bring, it would be great!)  Circle Punches (1” & 1 ½”); edge distresser; acrylic blocks for stamps; black Versa Fine Ink; corner rounder; a few small paint brushes; camera; and pictures (if time permits and if they’re organized and ready to go into your journal).  Also, if you have a Cinch Binding Machine and want to bind your own book, please feel free to bring it along.  If a few people also have a sewing machine that they wouldn’t mind bringing and sharing, it would be appreciated.  Ellen will bring hers, but a few more would be great!

Watch for more photos to follow, but call today to save your seat!
