ONLINE CLASS: Distress Techniques - Midnight Sky Blended Background

Monthly Distress Techniques Class with Kris
Thursday, May 6 at 7pm on Zoom

Distress inks have always been popular, but in the past year, it has become the "go to" product for so many different projects!  In this monthly series, our own Krafty Kris will teach you a variety of techniques and give you TONS of ideas on how you can use Distress in your crafting.  Plus, she'll mix in (no pun intended) a few mixed media tricks too.

In this class, you will learn the basics of creating a blended background, using a technique called "ink smudging", finishing with a stunning "midnight sky" that you can use on a card, in your art journals and traveler's notebooks, and on your layouts.

There is no kit of supplies for this class.  While we list suggested supplies below, we encourage you to use the supplies you have on hand -- Distress Ink, Distress Oxide ink, various sprays, any colours -- just to learn the techniques and have fun.  Using different products may result in slightly different results, but isn't that the best part about learning and experimenting?
