Be Inspired is a Canadian Designer Look & Learn event for Retailers being held July 18, 2011 from 3 - 5 pm (event #E506) during the CHA Conference in Chicago in July. There will be a presentation from the designers with regards to how they designed their projects. (Unfortunately, I have had to cancel my plans to attend but Tsukineko will present on my behalf - thankyou Tsukineko!) I was challenged along with 7 other designers to come up with a unique Mixed Media project using select products from Canvas Corp, DecoArt, Harmonie and Tsukineko. What a great group of products and companies to work with, there were so many choices! Here is my finished result, this home decor piece is created on a 10" stretched chunky canvas. For you card makers out there, this design could easily be recreated on a square card. Hope you like it!
This event is perfect for those of you who have stores, not only will you learn how to create 8 different mixed media projects but you will also receive an inspiration kit with products valued at over $150 in order to recreate some of the projects in your store and a CD of all the project instructions to use when you teach classes with your customers. Let us inspire you ... to inspire sales! You must register to attend the CHA Summer Conference and Trade Show before you can register to attend this event.
