Lynell Harlow, owner and designer of Dreamweaver Stencils, is preparing to teach two classes at Scrap Tales Saturday, July 24. Lynell will demonstrate her unique techniques for working with her stencil designs. She'll tell you all about her new designs and new product releases that she will debut at CHA.

We know we have a lot of Dreamweaver Stencil fans out there so you will not want to miss these classes - students still talk about her previous visit and all the wonderful techniques they learned from her.

Lunch will be provided for those attending both classes.

Lynell's first class begins at 11 a.m. and will focus on "Crackle Paste Techniques."
Join her as she teaches you step-by-step techniques of using Crackle Paste that is formulated for using metal stencils on paper. Then you will have fun learning to stencil with two stenciling mediums including the NEW Metallic F/X Powders. Students need to bring 2 gold-handled Dreamweaver Stencil brushes; all other materials are provided. This class is $40.

In her second class, "Putting on the Glitz"which begins at 2 p.m., 
Lynell teaches techniques for using three different mediums for adding pizzazz to your cardwork. Microbeads, glitter and mica powders are materials to be reckoned with when you work with metal stencils. Come take a class with Lynell and you'll learn tips and techniques to make your design time easier. All materials provided. This class is $40.
