New Art Journaling Class at CHA Jamboree :-)

Hi Everyone,

I have some good and bad news…..the bad news is that the Assemblage Clock for Karen’s class at our CHA Jamboree on the 3rd March won’t be here in time so I have to cancel the class… sorry!!

But the GOOD news is that we are replacing it with an Art Journaling class, Yippee!! πŸ™‚

You will learn how to use paper, paint, gesso, inks, stamps and more to express your creativity (kit will include an Art Journal), just check out Karen’s journaling pages on her blog for an idea of wha you can do….

The new product has finally started to arrive too so I will have videos of the kits in the next few days, make sure to keep an eye out

Happy Crafting
