Mica atc class

I've just finished the first of the 3 Mica atc classes, what a full-on day! We used 3 different types of Mica - the normal flat sheet Mica, Mica Glitter (available in lots of assorted colours) and the Mica Flake (also available in several colours). To adhere the Mica we used either Dimensional Magic, Glossy Accents or Diamond Glaze as they all dry crystal clear and have excellent glue properties.
Here is the raffle atc that was won by Rosemary.

"Stone Angel"... (this one has the Onyx Mica Glitter on the German Scrap Swan Wings)

"Temptation"... (also using the Onyx Mica Glitter on the wings....tempted??? lol)

"Mel-an-choly"... (I used the crystal coloured Mica Flake on this one...very ethereal looking!)

"Solitude"... (Mica Sheet used on this one AND there's that black texture paste again!)

"Home"... (also Mica Sheet on this one as well as a bit of shrink plastic with "home" on it and a verdigris coloured embossing powder around the edge)

I'm not as gabby today, think I'm all talked out from the class. I tend to do lots of explaining in the class as I want the girls to have plenty of information so they don't make mistakes as there working along. It's a lot to get through in 2 hours! Learn a brand new technique, often with new products that they haven't been exposed to before and make 3 atc's - 2 for the book they are making and 1 just as an atc to keep. I had 4 new girls in my class today which was nice, some newbies to get all excited and enthused about atc'!!!

Your work, as always, is just stunning. Have you thought about doing "cyber" classes?

I am always awed by your work! I think Home is my fave, looks so magikal. I want to cross thru that door.

I hope all the gals who come to your classes realise how lucky they are to have you! What a lot of work you out into samples and give-aways!

My, my, my . . . mica everywhere !! I've not tried the flakes, although I have some squirreled away.
Your students must have been squealing with excitement. Something about mica that just ratchets up the "oohh . . . aahhh" factor.
Excellent, excellent cards. Love "Home". Very strong piece.
