Jen Zdanis Starr will be at Cat's teaching Tuesday, September 17th for a Class-a-Thon from 10am 'til 9pm. She will teach 3 classes. However, Cat can't decide which classes to pick for Jen to teach.  So, she wants YOU to vote for your top 3 today so she can finalize the list by Thursday. 

In this Creative workshop you will explore stunning mixed media techniques to create effects that sparkle and shimmer while you make a one of a kind 1x3 ft butterfly themed pennant for your wall! You will be working with mists and my line of Dimensional Crystal paints from Art Anthology plus a variety of goodies from Viva Décor to add details. Your finished project will be so full of dimension and texture that the butterflies will seem to come to life!

(Note: the word “create” can be changed in class if you have a different word that you would prefer instead)

No one develops product to create that vintage and steampunk effect better than Tim Holtz so we will be using lots of “Timspiration” to “Holtzify” this fun project (sorry, I couldn’t help it)!
