Eileen Hull Journal Workshop with Brenda Brown - 'When Rust and Nature Collide' £45
Saturday 23rd November 10-4pm

I am very excited to welcome Brenda Brown to The Craft Studio @ Loobi Crafts for the first time to teach her gorgeous “When Rust & Nature Collide” workshop.

For this workshop Brenda is going to be showcasing the very popular Scoreboards XL Journal Die from Eileen Hull. Come and find out how she designed this fabulous project in her timeworn style and created textured layers for the front cover. Although Brenda has made this green and yellow oxide coloured journal she encourages you to choose your own to give it that more personal touch so we will have number of different colours available to you.

Please note that the workshop time will be taken for making the journal and the decorative elements on the front cover, there will not be time to make any inserts for it. If you would like to bring papers the double pages need to be 81/2 inches across and 81/4 inches long with the 81/2 inch sided folded to make pages 41/4 x 81/4. We will have a long arm stapler ready to make your pages into signatures and elastic ready for you to add your inserts when you have finished.

Whilst everyone begins from the same starting point and with the same supplies you know you will go home with a project quite special and unique to you. This workshop is suitable for those new to working in mixed media and using acrylic paints as well as those who have more experience, however we do presuppose that you have some knowledge and experience with crafting and are looking to extend yours skills and expertise. Whatever level you are at Brenda, who is a trained teacher, will demonstrate, advise and support you throughout the whole process.

Attendees will –
- Learn four different techniques/ways to create old and timework effects using DecoArt media fluid acrylic paints and mediums and distress ink. These are - a quick way to give a rusty treatment to your substrate; give card an aged tarnished silver look; a scratched paint effect and a textured gritty effect.
- Use paint and gold metallic lustre to give a realistic look to the die-cut bees.
- Paint and assemble the journal ready to take three sets of signatures or traveller notebooks (Midori style).
