Melbourne PaperArts Expo in April

It's finally time to share my classes for the Melbourne PaperArts Expo. I hope you'll join me and we can create up a storm together.

It is going to be a fun filled three days. I will be working out of classroom four for the weekend.

FRIDAY 8th APRIL 10.30am-12.30pm

My first class is sponsored by 7 Dots Studio and is called "Be Brave".

This class teaches you how to create a layered scrapbooking page using a combination of patterned papers without losing the essence of each individual paper’s beautiful design. Participants will get the chance to build a 12 x 12 layered layout using the 7 Dots Studio ‘Lost and Found’ collection of papers, tags, stickers and die cut elements. The class will teach participants to incorporate many different elements into their scrapbooking including light mixed media techniques, sewing, the use of textiles, stamping, stenciling and much more. This vintage earthy styled layout is not only easy to create but also suitable for all skill levels.

I will be teaching this class everyday in the morning on Friday Saturday and Sunday as my feature class.

FRIDAY 8th APRIL 1.00pm-3.00pm

On Friday afternoon, I'll be teaching a mixed media rich class sponsored by 13Arts and 2 Crafty Chipboard


‘Make A Difference’ gives you an opportunity to explore and fulfill your mixed media cravings. This project is created on a 12 x 12 canvas board so it is nice and sturdy and able to take all the mixed media products you throw at it. The class starts with texture adding and quickly escalates into a lot of colour-filled fun as you get to apply 13Arts Chalk sprays to create your background. The project is then topped off with some yummy 2Crafty Chipboard pieces and some more texture by adding 13Arts natural Mika Flakes and glitter bars.

I will only be teaching this class on Friday afternoon.

SATURDAY 9th APRIL 10.30am -12.30pm

On Saturday morning I teach the 7Dots Studio layout again "Be Brave"

SATURDAY 9th APRIL 1.00pm-3.00pm

On Saturday afternoon I'm going to teach something completely different and totally off the page. I have been experimenting with some wire sculpting and I wanted to share with everyone how easy it can be to achieve.

This class is sponsored by Relics & Artifacts, Viva Las Vegastamps and Um WOW Studio.


Little Angels and Little Rascals are two wire sculpting projects that allow you to transfer your love of creating to an off the page project. This easy to learn wire sculpting technique will have you hooked in no time. The rustic esoteric designs show you how to replicate those scrapbooking techniques you use in your everyday crafting into other art projects like these ones. The sweet little Relics and Artifacts figureheads from Prima will bring your little Angel creation to life while whimsical stamp designs from Viva Las Vegas Stamps do the job with your little Rascal.

I will only be teaching this class on Saturday afternoon.

SUNDAY 10th APRIL 10.30am-12.30pm

On Sunday morning I teach the 7Dots Studio layout again "Be Brave"

SUNDAY 10th APRIL 1.00pm-3.00pm

On Sunday afternoon I will be teaching a layout sponsored by 2 Crafty Chipboard called "Beautiful".

"Beautiful" helps you to build your confidence and release your inner artist, through the use of a very easy watercolor technique to create your background on this 12 x 12 artistically designed layout. Join Fiona as she shares with you her innovative stamping ideas and easy to achieve artistic techniques utilising everyday items to gain texture and interest. By incorporating 2 Crafty Chipboard, you will learn to create depth and dimension to your creations as well as incorporating a modern geometrical feel. Fiona will show you how to achieve a balanced and artistic element to your work while exploring combining all of your favourite colours.

I will only be teaching this class on Sunday afternoon.

What a jam packed FULL 3 days I am going to have! I hope you'll be able to join me along with these other amazing artists Kerrie GurneyBeck BTHeather McMahon and Natalie May at the new PaperArts Expo in Melbourne very soon!!!
