Workshop at Shelly's - July 21, 2012

On Saturday, July 21, 2012, we will be hosting a small workshop and crop in Kings Mills, Ohio from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m..  It will be $10 to crop, plus any class/workshop fees.  Shelly Allen is offering a Close to My Heart workshop at 1:00 p.m.  It will be $25 for 3-
two page layouts using the CTMH Superhero line.  More details about her workshop should be posted soon on her blog at 

I will be offering the following Newport Aquarium (or any Aquarium if you let me know you don't want it to say "Newport" before I cut the letters!) mosaic layout using CTMH stamps.

I originally saw a layout sort of like this in a Close to My Heart catalog.  I instantly fell in love with the layout and asked my friend and CTMH consultant, Shelly Allen, to do a workshop for the page.  Later, it occurred to me that the lines and shape of the layout would actually lend themselves quite nicely to a mosaic.  So, I set to work converting it.  I was very pleased with the finished background, but had not yet stamped the sea animals when I sent it to a couple of my close friends for a 'consultation' about what they thought of it. 

Across the board, every friend I sent it to (5) said "I love the title but I don't really like the peacock feathery paper."  So, back to the drawing board I went.  This is the new and improved version (with sea creatures added)! 

We'll be offering this class at a workshop at Shelly Allen's on July 21, 2012.  Shelly will have a 1:00 class an this one will be at 4:00.  The price for my class is $30 if you need a Mosaic Moments mat and $15 if you already have one.  You will also need your mosaic tool kit (cork-backed metal ruler, #11 blade craft knife, Herma Dotto Repositionable adhesive).  I'll provide the grid paper, patterned paper, and photo mat papers and we'll borrow Shelly's CTMH sea animals stamps and CTMH inks!  :) 

And, just in case you're curious - here are the previous versions:

The one above is the pic from the catalog!

This one was my first stab at it.  Guess I'll use it for my own pics!
