The last class I’m showing you about the CKC convention is Home Grown Cards with Basic Grey. Check out the YouTube video on the class presentation. For the most part I just followed right along with the instructions. There were a few techniques like using glue dots with micro beads (far right pear card), using stencils with mist and pen-work (direct middle, back; hard to see). The techniques were nothing very new to me. Also the colors of the collection felt to grunge for my current color taste. Most of the sentiments were not wording I would use for everyday cards. All in all, it was not my favorite class, but I think it was really taste dependent. If you like Basic Grey or this color pallet, I would say go for it.
My favorite card was the front one that I made inspired by one of the design layouts but I mixed it up since I had accidentally cut apart the intended greeting image. I like the brighter pink/yellow/green pallet with brown just for contrast. Plus the four color-blocked design works really well I think. I don’t know why I’ve not tried the color-blocking on cards before.
Final thoughts, look over the instructions and projects first to make sure you have all the parts you need for making the projects you want to follow step by step. Then feel free to mix, match and even change entirely the things you want to change.
