MegaMeet in Novi,MI - Part I

Right now the annual Mega Meet Scrapbook Convention in Novi, MI is going on and we have been searching for some new ideas and products. 

The convention started yesterday May 9th and will end Saturday May 11th.

You can attend classes for card making and scrap booking. You can learn new techniques or get to know companies and their products. As like many of these conventions, some classes are more worth to attend than others.

This year my friend Elke and I decided to learn a little bit more about Alcohol Markers and how to blend them. There are so many markers on the market and techniques differ from class to class that we decided to attend two different classes. And boy were they different.....

 "Alcohol Markers - Great Techniques", instructed by Jennie Black and sponsored by BEE Creative.

This was a great class and we learn a lot of new things about alcohol markers, how they work, how to pick the right colors, how to blend and that the blending pen has nothing to do with blending :-) (This information alone was already worth the class). 
The instructor was well prepared and could explain techniques in an easy to understand way. She provided us with many tips on how to get started and how to avoid common mistakes. 
In this class we used alcohol markers from "Spectrum Noir". A very good priced marker that colors and blends just as well as others. A great starter tool for beginners that don't want to invested a fortune.

Overall an awesome class for beginners as well as pros and it was well worth the $22 we spend.

We even got to go home with a set of 6 alcohol markers, a "blending" pen, a DVD with over 2 hours off techniques and tons of knowledge.

Tune in tomorrow for more information about the second class and the convention itself.

If you like to know more about alcohol markers and how to start, how to use them etc... please feel free to contact me. We can do a one on one class or if you have a couple of friends that are interested, we can to a class together, just let me know
