SUPPLIES for Maelynn's FREESTYLE CLASS on Monday 9/25

Maelynn here!.... I'm ready for freestyle!

For those of you attending my freestyle class on Monday at Scrapbook Mania, here are the supplies you should plan to bring. If you don't have all these things, don't worry. I will have extras with me for you to borrow.

Apron or old clothes We may get a bit messy

5-10 Photos If you have both black & white and color photos, that would be best. Bring photos that you don't mind messing up. We will be trying different techniques on these.

3 craft paints Bring a couple that coordinate a little - like light pink and dark pink, or yellow and orange, or light blue and dark blue - and any other color.

Foam brush

A "slick" marker or vellum marker If you have black and/or white, please bring those. (These are markers that will write on slick surfaces, like photos)

3 pieces of cardstock Bazzill is not necessary and color doesn't matter

Ink pads or Distress inks Browns, dark green, or burgundy-ish colors are good but not required. Black is fine too.


Paper trimmer


I'm pretty sure that everyone coming has signed up for ALL THREE CLASSES in the freestyle series! So that means you ALL will be getting a FREE JOURNAL/sketch book, goodies from SAKURA, and some items from AUTUMN LEAVES/FOOFALA, too!!!! (By the way, if you'd like to alter your journal with materials different than those in the sample shown below in a previous post or at the store, please feel free to bring some things. It's YOUR journal.)

The plan is to get through altering the cover of the journal using some freestyle techniques mixed with some tradition scrapbooking techniques so you can get a feel for how to kind of mix the two styles together. THEN, hopefully, we'll have some more time to get through some more freestyle techniques. We have three classes to get through TONS of techniques! If you have any questions at all about the class or the series, please email me at

Really looking forward to it, ladies.! -- Maelynn
