In this workshop you will learn about some of Technique Tuesday founder, Bev Grey’s, favorite gold products and techniques. You will learn how to add little pops of gold to make your projects extra-classy, create a glimmer of gold for a little contrast, and make big, bold, gold elements. The class will be taught by Nicole Petersen and you will receive a discount coupon you can use in Nicole’s booth at the show. Plus everyone has a chance to win Technique Tuesday products during the class. From modern elegance to ultra-hip, the gold techniques you will learn are mind blowingly fabulous yet easy to use on your next layout, pocket page, or hand-made card.
