My workshop will be held on Thursday, October 6th, from 9am-4pm. It’s called Dress Up Your Desktop.

Loads of paper crosses our desks on a daily basis. Why not create some fun custom ‘filing’ systems and other desktop organizers that reflect your own artsy self?

In this technique-heavy class, we’ll create several Master Boards and then cut them up into useful desktop organizer pieces.  We’ll use inks, paints, stamps, stencils and more.

We’ll start class with lessons on color blending and layering techniques, learn how to use a Sizzix diecutting and embossing machine, and work our way through stenciling and other tricks. I bring tons of stamps, stencils, and dies so you’ll have plenty to play with.

You’ll have many options for your Master Boards. You choose which and how many you want to make: binders, altered clipboards, file folders, altered mousetraps (‘to do’ list holders), post-it note booklets, and assorted binder clips.

Using these techniques will also give you a launch pad for making unique holiday and teacher gifts.  Who wouldn’t love a clipboard or set of file folders that stand out in a crowd?
