Full Workshop Tool Kit List -

Paper trimmer / Ruler and Cutting knife

Adhesive - double sided tape / Herma etc

3d foam pads / tape

Glossy Accents / Diamond Glaze/ Ki Gloo or alternative strong hold wet adhesive

Acrylic Stamping block

Apron (optional) - as we will be using a small amount of acrylic paint.

Fine tipped paintbrush

A pokey tool for making holes for brads

A needle

If you have a Bind-it-All machine, then please bring it along with you.

Full Workshop Photo List -

Paintables Option 1 - One full size A4 photograph which allows for an 8 inch circle to be cut from it without losing any detail. Preferably a close up headshot. A coloured photograph would work well, but please bear in mind that this page has a very floral, feminine theme ( and therefore would not suit a photograph of a young man wearing football boots!) I have used a black and white close up headshot of a young girl.

Paintables Option 2 - One, 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and one, 2 1/2 x 31/2 photographs.

The images need to be in colour, as we will be drawing our colour inspiration from the photographs to water colour the Paintables paper. I have used photographs of a Bride and Groom on their wedding day as the Paintables has a floral theme.

Sassafras Vintage Yummy - One 5x7 portrait photograph.

I have used a black and white headshot image of myself.

Sassafras Anthem - One 5 x7 portrait photograph.

I have used a black and white headshot image of my son.

This is a comprehensive list of items required and you have 2 weeks to get things sorted but don't worry if you haven't got a Bind-it-All as both Tracie and I will be taking ours but with 20 people needing to use them it will obviously speed things up quite a bit if you do have one to bring along....

OK now for the sneak peeks!!!!!


Anthem close up, then Peaches, then Vintage Yummy and then a snippet of one of the Paintables classes:
