How Do You Doodle? (Hint: With Stamps!)

Everyone knows we are HUGE Wendy Vecchi fans here at Paper Anthology, so here’s a class that features three of Wendy’s newest MAKE ART Stamp Sets: Doodle Town, Doodle Celebration and Floral Doodles; as well as some older Studio 490 goodies like her Simply Stripes Background (double stamped to make our own custom plaid), Thank You Stamp, Die and Stencil Set, Rectangle Grate Stencil and Rectangular Stitching Template. We’ll “watercolor” with Archival Inks, paint and blend with Liquid Pearls, do a little hand-stitching (there’s an alternative for non-sewing types) and quite a bit of fussycutting. Join Lauren on Saturday, September 10th from 12-3pm; Monday, September 12th from 11am-2pm; or Monday October 3rd from 11am-2pm. Cost is $24. Please bring your basic kit and your favorite scissors!
