Last Time Teaching in Germany Recap

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Nikki Kehr invited me to teach on Saturday May 20th - my very last time teaching while living abroad, sad day! But let's not dwell on that, let's focus on the fun time we had!

Rapeseed fields galore! They are just so pretty.
We made the fringe heart layout first...
...and then moved onto a hand cut letters technique.

DESCRIPTION: I pretty much scraplifted myself again to make this layout! What I love about this is it only uses a single sheet of patterned paper, so the class attendees had a lot of leftovers to play with.
JOURNALING SAYS: When you guys get along and play together nicely it makes me oh so very happy happy!
HOW TO: Paint stripes of watercolors and splash white acrylic paint across a white cardstock background. Cut apart the patterned squares from Paper 24 then hand cut a title. I made each row of words the same color of patterned paper. Sew the words across their same color of paint then apply embellishments color-on-color for lots of fun texture. Adhere a black & white photo at an angle on the bottom left and trim the excess. Write journaling on a tag and tuck it under the photo to finish. 
SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, stickers (chipboard, puffy), washi tape, tag: Oh My Heart by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee; Cardstock, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Watercolors: Loew Cornell; Paint: FolkArt
I loved seeing everyone's different titles and slight variations.
Here is a process video so you can watch and see how this layout was made from start-to-finish:
The workshop was held in a cute rental space called Zucker in Darmstadt near Frankfurt.
Fringing away!
I brought a ton of scrap paper so they could use those instead of full sheets of paper. I love the colors on the right heart - now I want to try making a pink/salmon page!

The snack bar area had some epic wallpaper.
Yummy snacks!

It was a fun morning! Scrapping with friends is the best!
