A Maze of Memories Demo Day with Michelle Johnson

A great big thank you to everyone who joined us today for our demo day with Michelle Johnson. The make and takes were a great success and lots of our crafters said how much they enjoyed watching the demo and being able to make something themselves.We had three classes of make and takes with a total of 39 people enjoying creating products including children.

The make and take project was to create a dragonfly tag. We used lots of products and lots of techniques. The Stix2 tag was matted onto patterned paper and Michelle showed us how to get a perfect layer all around using the Stix2 Layer Perfect tool. The body of the dragonfly was filled with hot glue and then beaded or glittered. Everyone enjoyed doing that! We also paper pieced, and used a clear Sakura stardust pen as well as the black glaze pen to embellish the design. We also coloured and shrunk ribbon.

The tag could be added to a gatefold card if wished. Here is an example of one made.

Something everybody was very pleased with was that the Stix2  Iridescent Glitter can be coloured with promarkers or Spectrum Noir pens! Michelle has stamped this Summer Weeds  Woodware stamp onto white card with black ink. A piece of Stix2 double sided adhesive has been stuck on top. The top layer is then removed and the whole piece of card covered in the glitter. Burnish (rub it in!) and then you can add colour on top! The effect was brilliant.

We sold lots more of the Layer Perfect tool so if you would like to see a recap on the many ways it can be used click here.

A big thank you to Stix2 and Woodware who sponsored today.Their support is much appreciated.
