Saturday's fun...


Today Mike Putman taught his first class at Mystic Paper, but this isn't the first class he's ever taught. First let me say, Mike is awesome!!! He loves what he does and that's obvious in his work and in his teaching. There are lots of pictures in this post because it was so much fun to document the progression of his class. So, let's get started!


Listening to Mike's introduction...

Nice clean tools to start with. They got to play with Bees Wax, Alcohol Inks, Chalk Inks, heat guns, and irons.


Getting started...


Hmmm, what have I gotten myself into?


Lots of fun embellishments...



And ephemera...


Beginning of a layout for the collage...


Now it's gettin' messy...



A few finished collages...


Aren't they beautiful?


Every collage was different. Some brought their own pictures to use like this, and others used what Mike brought.


This class was a huge success! Thanks so much Mike! I think the applause at the end of the class was a clear indicator that Mike's classes are going to be a huge hit here at Mystic Paper. Keep your eye on the calendar for Mike's next class, it's going to fill fast!
