New Workshops at Scrapbook Island

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a couple of ICE Resin ® workshops on April 13th at Scrapbook Island.  The workshops are 2hrs each, and we’ll break for lunch for a bit and get back to creating some lovely resin pieces. Even more exciting news, I’ll be using the Rue Romantique line in my “ A Splash of Color” class, and the new Art Mechanique line in the “Crystal Clear” class! The rosary chain and sweet bezels are perfection with the customized resin colors…you’ll be hooked for sure! Sign up for the workshops by contacting Scrapbook Island at 408-978-8900. I so hope you can join me for some truly delectable play time!
 
 
"Crystal Clear"
The tricks & techniques to creating fearless resin projects
Instructor: Lexi Grenzer
($50)
April 13, 2013 (11-1pm)
We will discuss the ins and outs of mixing ICE Resin®, how to create resin paper, how to seal photos/cardstock/lace/decorative paper, embellish a bezel with rhinestones/vintage buttons/charms/ and anything else that suits your fancy.  Each student will have the opportunity to create a necklace *similar to the class example, and a second bezel will be offered to further your creative bliss with this truly remarkable product.  In addition to designing your pendants, I will work with you on basic jewelry assemblage, which covers basic wire wrapping.  If you’ve been scared to mix resin in the past, fear no more, I’ll help you leave feeling confident about incorporating resin projects into your scrapbooking, mixed media art work and wardrobe.  This is the perfect class for beginning artists and does not require any experience creating jewelry.  It’s also important to note that you do not have to wear your pendants.  These can be attached to journals, cards, scrapbooking pages…you name it!
