Come scrap with Iris Babao Uy

The time has come and I know many of you have been anxiously waiting for us. We can't thank you enough for being ever so patient!!

The idea of inviting Iris came to us about six months ago and seeing it all slowly come together gets us all excited everytime! Hailing from the Philippines, Iris is one of several designers from this region whose creations never fail to grace popular scrapbooking magazines such as Memory Makers, Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbook Trends, among many others. Iris is also a designer for manufacturers such as Prima, Websters Pages and October Afternoon and she makes it seem like an effortless task as she juggles her time between taking care of her family and meeting scrapbooking deadlines!

We are well and truly grateful that Iris has created 4 never-seen-before layouts to be taught exclusively at Shabby Chic which incorporates so many amazing techniques that always makes her work so uniquely beautiful. For one weekend only, this would be your ONLY perfect opportunity to learn directly from Iris how she creates such amazing layouts all the time!!

'Blossom' & 'Sweet Days'
Saturday, 21 November 2009
Time : 4 - 8pm
Fee : B$120.00 per person

Blossom - This class will teach students how to use gesso for coverage and for distressing. We will also be working with melted gold wax and tulle. Plus there will be lots of hand-cutting, tearing and wrinkling! If you like the shabby chic style then you will enjoy this class!

Sweet Days - Who said canvas was only beautiful for painting? It is a beautiful base for scrapbook pages too. In this class, you will learn how to prep canvas and use it as a prep for your layout. We will play with paint, gel medium, perfect pearls and you will use gloss varnish.

Students to bring:
Foam glue
Tape glue
Clear dots
Heat gun (if any)
Chipboard letters (Iris used Lipgloss Darling Thickers)

'Loved' & 'Journey Called Life'
Sunday, 22 November 2009
Time : 4 - 8pm
Fee : B$120.00 per person

Loved - Have you ever looked at a painting and wondered how the artist created the texture and embossed images? You will try your hand at being an artist in this class. We will work with modeling paste complete with a palette knife! Then we will create beautiful colours on our page with metallic pigment powders.

Journey Called Life - This class will focus on using gel mediums for print transfers and creating textured edges. We will work on both paper and canvas. If you are the artsy type or if you have wanted to try playing with artist mediums then this is the class for you!

Students to bring:
Tape glue
Clear dots
Misters (if any)
Heat gun (if any)
Alphabet stickers (Iris used Light Green Prancer & Chestnut Jewelry Box Thickers)
