Supplies for Kelly Russell’s Demo

Below is a list of supplies if you want to work on the project that Kelly is demonstrating. Kelly says it is best to watch her process and take notes. She has prepared samples of each step and says that you shouldn’t follow along as you won’t have the amount of time needed to finish the project.

Her demo will be recorded and available to guild members only.
