10:15am Alice in Wonderland Bracelet and Brooch Set
Designed & Instructed by Karen Ellis

Come create with Karen. Use Memory Frames to make your own custom Jewelry. We will be tinting black and white public domain images from the fabled Alice and Wonderland books with distress inks and some Cut N Dry Nibs and decorating them with some fun charms and buttons.

Please bring your coloured inks. Distress Inks blend the best. I used Vintage Photo, Broken China, Scattered Straw, Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick Red. (Browns, Blues, Reds and Yellow) Also bring Black Ink to stamp with too!

Also required, needle nose pliers, wire cutters and your fine motor skills!
Class Fees: $20

Have I told you how much I love Graphic 45 papers?! Here is another class I designed with this fabulous paper: A 12x12 canvas wall hanging.
