We will explore, inks, mists,paint daubers and dabbers, wood papers by Creative Imaginations, Luminarte twinks and daubers, stencils, and masks, as well as Flocked papers and stickers, and how to take them out of the box. Additionally, we will explore foils, adhesives, felts and paints (yes- in that combo, even!) We will find the "super" in Super Seal, and put it to the test. We will also explore various adhesives and their uses beyond what the manufacturer suggests.

You will leave with a notebook filled with great ideas, samples, and notes. Students can bring products they have questions about as well.

Marah Johnson Teaches This Saturday!

Her work been published several times by Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Design Originals, Legacy, Scrapbooking and Beyond, Paper Crafting and a few more that she can't remember... she has so many ideas floating around in her head that her memory skills are lacking a bit.

Marah is still happiest barefoot, hair pulled in a ponytail, comfy clothes, fingers full of ink and glue with a bit of paint and glitter thrown in for good measure. She is known for getting lost in her projects and having to remember to set an alarm clock so she doesn't forget to pick up her kids at school, and more often than not forgets to eat lunch.
