"Love and Devotion"... (this was the one EVERYONE wanted - love those Stampotique stamps!)
"Embrace Life"... (this one was to show the girls you don't have to just colour with the Smooch Inks, you can simply use them to edge a picture and also smudge the ink around the edge of a black border on an atc. It also colours German Scrap and metal as well!)
Now we all have to wait another week or so for more Smooch Inks to come in at Scraptivate, the girls in my atc classes bought just about everyone of them in the store...and we had heaps! Not anymore...lol. The next atc class is Painting with Babywipes, another great background technique.

"Enchantment"... (for this one I embossed with gold on a black card, then added the smooch for colour - Stampers Anonymous Stamp)
"Destructionist"... (with faux wax around the edge...love that stuff!!!)
That's it for the moment, might have some more samples after my 3 classes.

Firstly though, here's another couple of Fusible Film/Angelina Film samples from the last class.
"Life is too short"....(this was done with the Watermelon Angelina Film.....SO not my colour so I altered it a bit by dry-brushing with burgundy and lilac paints.....much better colour!)
"Support System"... (this one is the acetate placed over a soot background)...

The last class I taught was Stamping & Beading on Fabric. We used both hand-stitched beading as well as microbeads. Here's the last few samples from that particular class.
Scraptivate now stocks the beautiful Smooch Inks. I'll be using these in an upcoming class and below is a sample of what can be done with them. The Smooch is the colouring on the background and the fluid embellishment around the edge is from the Faux Wax class previously taught.

In my next post I'll put up some pics of the marbling atc blanks without any pictures on them so you can see how cool they look before you even to anything to them. It'd also make great card backgrounds too!
Part 2 of the Art Doll Class is on tomorrow afternoon after the atc class in the morning. Tomorrow the girls are going to learn a few different ways of beading, picot, fringing and a freestyle beading technique that I know is going to test their patience but they'll love the final effect. I'm thinking of making some mini-art dolls so stay tuned....might even give some kits away!
