More Wendy classes!

Yesterday I got to take 2 more classes with Wendy Vecchi!  In each class we got to use some of her new Art Parts.  We took a break at noon so we could eat and shop before Wendy's demo on Clearly for Art.  She also talked about some of the newer Ranger products.  It was fun being with old and new friends at Scrapbook Friend'z in Bloomington, IL. 

The first class was called 'Oh So Merry' and featured the 3.5"x5" art parts frame.  Grunge paper and stickers from Tim Holtz' Seasonal stash were featured, along with your choice of Wendy's background stamps.  The hanging bauble was attached using a charm clip (gotta get some of those!).  Lots of elevation in this piece - so much fun to create!

In the second class we created an Art Parts holiday spool.  Again, more of Tim's seasonal stickers, grunge paper, and Wendy's background stamps.  There are some Maya Road embellishments, too.  Another fun piece that got us all inky! 

I did discover that when inserting the spool stem into the flat pieces it was easier to do it when I wasn't fighting the natural direction of the paper.  It's kind of like any other cardboard tube, if you twist one way it will uncurl or open, if you twist the other way the tube will go in nice and easy. 

What with the cooler temperatures and these Christmas creations, I'm in the mood to start my holiday cards. 

Happy holidays!
