Teaching Teaching Teaching and so blessed beyond words!

I’m so excited to say that this year seems to be shaping up a as the year I’m getting out and about with so many amazing teaching opportunities!  I have been very blessed to be asked to share my passion at a number of events where I get to do what I love most of all.  Teaching and inspiring others while meeting so many wonderful people that enjoy what I love most... paper crafting. 

Melbourne Scrapbook and Papercraft expo earlier this year was amazing and I really enjoyed meeting new people and sharing what I do.  You can check out some pictures here of what I got up to. 

My next stop this year will be the Scrapbook and Papercraft expo in June.  I am teaching one class over the 3 days.  I’m so humbled to be teaching along so many amazing artists at this event.  I have only VERY limited spots left in my classes but considering opening a couple more spots each day.  If you miss out on a spot or would just like to stop by and say hi, please do… I’ll be about all weekend :D  My class is at 12 noon each day.  Click here if you would like to book in.  Here is a couple of sneaks of my class. 


We will be creating a mixed media background using Tiny Metallic melts, Faber-Castell's gelatos and their new Whipped Spackle, embellishing the page Scrap Matts Chipbourd, Authentique papers, Spellbinders dies and Craft queen Buttons and sequins.  The finished layout will be your bonus after leaning many tips and techniques to create a more personalised scrapbooking style and achieve balance on your layouts. Warning: you might get addicted to gelatos, whipped spackle, Metallic melts and all things mixed media!

Class includes: A kit with a set of four Faber-Castell Gelatos, Authentique patterned papers, Craft Queen sequins and twine, Scrapmatts chipboard and cardstock, Spellbinders Die cuts. You’ll also use two colours of Tinby Designs Metallic Melts, Tsukineko ink and Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle.
Products sponsored by: Craft Queen, Scrapmatts, Tinby Designs and Faber-Castell.

I have also been recently announced as a new faculity member for Art Is You mixed media retreats.  I was beyond stunned when I was asked to join this group and be one of the featured artists at this year’s first Australian Road Show event to be held in August 2014!  The Road show will be travelling to Melbourne, New South Wales central coast and Brisbane.  This is going to be one amazing event.  There are a number of artists from America  and Australia sharing their amazing talent and I am again beyond humbled to be teaching.  I will be teaching an amazing technique focused class with the amazing talented Linda Lucas known for her clever use of colour.  Linda is one of Spellbinders bloggers and is also Artist in Residence for Tsukineko/ Imagine crafts.   I will post more details about our class soon.  In the meantime here is a share of mine and Linda's more mixed media focused artworks. 

My next stop is going to be the Melbroune Paperific expo at which I am beyond blessed to be asked to be part of this fantastic event once again.  I will be teaching across the weekend and will also have one of my amazing Arty Chic’s Heather McMahon there as well.  Please come past and say hi to us.  Again I will be sharing some pics closer to the event which is held 29-31st August 2014.  You can check out details of the expo here there is even a video showing all the fun that can be had while there!  We will be having fun with some mixed media in the classes, sure to help you get your ‘creative’ on! 

On 28th June I'm also heading off to country Victora to teach a bunch of lovely ladies (that have been following my work for some time now) two technique focused classes.  The first will be creating 2 Scrapbook pages and the second class will be a mixed media canvas.  

The day is sure to be LOADS of fun.  I will have more details up on the blog shortly, but e-mail me (details further down in this post) if you are interesed in hearing more about it.  

This class is being being organised in conjunction with Bella Carta Horsham, a shop that prides itself on its beautiful paper products, including stationary, craft and party goods.  They also import unique Italian gifts and products.   
Shhhhhh!  The last big event I have been asked to do I can’t quite share details about yet, but it is a truly amazing event that I have been asked to do.  It is a large fundraising event retreat to be held in Melbourne in July with a cause close to most of us and a story that has touched many Aussie hearts.  Of course I will be donating my time and product to this amazing event and I will be asking you all to come be a part of it, as soon as I can share more details.  

I really enjoy meeting new people, probably the biggest perk to what I do, so don't feel shy, come past and say hi.  Looking forward to meeting so many of you at these events.

Also if you are local to me in West Melbourne, e-mail me at orders.scrappychatdesigns@gmail.com and let me know you are interested in coming along to my local classes.  These are smaller groups as spots are very limited.  Also I'll add you to my mailing list keeping you up to date with my kit releases and other events I'm teaching at.
