Get a jump-start on your decorations by learning how to use a die-cutting machine, vinyl, DIY ornaments and a few more materials to make one of these for every member of your family, for gifts and to sell for extra cash. 

 

This class consists of several instructional components. First I will teach you how to apply the materials necessary for a bright and colorful ornament with "staying power". Then I will demonstrate the basics for using a Silhouette die-cutting machine to customize and cut vinyl. Next we will learn how to apply vinyl to materials...in this case it will be shatterproof ornaments. Finally, we will add the finishing touches to each of our projects to create 3 completed pieces. 

 

I will include complete, printed instructions, two round ornaments, two vinyl die-cut names, one disc ornament, pre-cut vinyl Grinch face, Grinch “hair”, ribbon, several colors of glitter and other necessary materials.

Dot Mandalas are an elegant art form that are as relaxing to create as they are beautiful to display! Once you’ve learned the basics in this class, you’ll be able to create works of art on canvas, stones, pendants, ornaments and more! 

 

In this class I will provide you with printed handouts, complete instructions, step-by-step patterns and the basic materials to complete one dot mandala on a black 4x4 canvas panel. The first sample is the project we will be completing in class. 

 

I will supply the paints, canvas, and every day items to use as tools. All you will need to purchase is a small set of tools to bring with you (see the supply list). There is a wide variety of other tool options available, and we will go over my favorites in class, so that you can decide what you like best before purchasing anything else. 

 

I hope you will join me!
