Acrylic class

I've started teaching classes at Yellowbird Scrapbook store and this year, I'm holding an acrylic series. I love working with acrylic and I've noticed so many people are intimidated by it because it is a new medium. So the idea for this series is you can learn different acrylic techniques with each class. If you take one class, you'll end up with a nice wall-hanging or acrylic layout. If you take more of the classes, we'll bind them into an album at the end of the year.

All the projects are 2 sided. This first class is rather basic but we'll be building from here. Its next Monday night, February 9th and its only $15. you can sign up online here.

If you’ve ever been a little intimidated by acrylic, this is the class for you. This class is packed with techniques! There’s so much you can do with acrylic and we’ll start with inking, cutting, punching, and gluing it to make this 2-sided layout. We’ll also learn about inks, adhesives, paper tearing, and how to use the Xyron create-a-sticker tool and a Crop-a-Dile. This is the first class in a series of acrylic classes. Take one and you’ll have a nice layout or wall hanging. Take them all and you’ll have an acrylic album full of your year’s memories. Every class you’ll learn new acrylic techniques.
