UPDATE: USTREAM hates us, so we will not be live. However, it is being recorded and we will share that with you as soon as we can. Sorry. 


Happy Saturday to you all! Normally, the education team has a fun video for you on Saturday, and that's probably why you are reading this, BUT, we have something very special for you today. We have a guest teacher from Luminarte coming to Swirly Camp in Chicago today! So, we are going to broadcast her via UStream at 1:15, Central Time. So, please join us then if you can. :)  You can bust out your Silks, Twinkling H2Os, Radiant Rain mists, Inka Golds, and Pearl Pens and play along with us this afternoon! The UStream will be recorded if you can make it. Invite your friends and we will see you there. We will update you on Facebook if we get delayed, so stay connected. There is a link to our Ustream on the right side of the screen.

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

If you already have your Brass Shilling kit then I know you are loving every minute of it. The greens and brown tones is this are the perfect combination. I really adore the yellow and orange undertones to the browns. Here's a layout I've done that's chocked full of mixed media and texture. 


You can see more details on my blog www.scrappygoddess.blogspot.com

And I have a super awesome tutorial to share with you today with yet another way to alter chipboard. Remember the hinges on on my shabby tool box?


Here is the step by step video tutorial to show you how I made these awsomly shabby metal pieces. 





TFL,
