Mists: Not just point & shoot...



YOU COULD WIN!

Leave a comment on this post and you could win one seat in the Mists — Not Just Point & Shoot class which runs from July 6-July 20. (A $29.99 value.)     

Here's a little more about the class from the instructor, Heidi Myers:    

Mists. What’s not to love? But once you’ve sprayed a few pieces of card stock,  what do you with the other 90% of the bottle? As a certified mist junkie, I know a thing or two about mists. I also have a  large number of them and after awhile, the number of them outgrew the number of  techniques I knew how to use with them. So I set out on a quest to find ways to  use them and get some serious bang for my buck. 

When I decided to teach a class on mists, I knew I didn’t want to just cover the  basics. While learning them is important, so is learning how to step outside the  basics – and our own comfort zones – and learning how to take your skills to the next level. 

My ultimate goal for the class is to have you push the limits on everything you  can do with mists, including using them on surfaces you may not have thought of, using common tools such as paint brushes and brayers and spatulas in different ways, pairing them with basic scrapbook supplies such as stencils and masks and  chipboard and rub-ons in interesting ways, as well as using them to up the wow  factor on paints and gels and pastes and glues.

There is a class size limit, so if you have interest in taking the class you should purchase it soon. If you win and have already purchased, Heidi will refund your money.

In case you don't know who Heidi is (she was my partner in crime at Sketchy Thursdays), here is some more about her.   

Since she was a little girl Heidi Myers gravitated toward creative endeavors  and approached tasks from her own crafty perspective. So it was small wonder  that her introduction to scrapbooking about eight years ago was like meeting an old friend for the first time. Heidi's affection for paper crafting, and  subsequently mixed media, has grown steadily ever since. Over the years she's learned to give herself permission to create for her, not a standard set by  popular outlets or the status quo. This has given Heidi the courage to explore,  discover and approach products and techniques with an unclouded and thoroughly  curious eye. Heidi thrills to the prospect of learning something completely new and out of her comfort zone and devising different ways to use and do things. Heidi shares her curiosity and findings through articles and tutorials for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine and as full-length classes on The Art Studio at Scrapbook News and Review. 

Heidi is currently an Education Coordinator and Assistant Editor for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine and an Instructor for The ArtStudio at Scrapbook News and Review. She was a co-founder of Sketchy Thursdays, formerly on several  Design Teams including Precocious Paper, Pink Ninjas, Torendi and Design  Dollies, and has been published in Paper Crafts Magazine. You can check out  more of her work in the pages of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine and on her  blog artiql8 by heidi.
