A little bit about Scarlton.....

I'm Samantha Carlton, know as Scarlyton in the art world.  I am a mixed media artist and art journalist working out of my home studio.  I create what I call "intuitive abstract art" because it allows me to step aside from critical thinking and paint from a place of mindfulness.  During the day I'm a licensed therapist and I enjoy teaching, creating and reading.  My work may be viewed on the Ranger Ink Blog and through Instagram (@scarlyton).  It can also be purchased directly through my social media channels.

A description of the workshop.....

Keeping an art journal can be a great way to express emotions, thoughts and creativity.  Art journaling is perfect for novice and experienced artists because it's flexible, fun, and difficult to mess up!  Join me for a creative class where I'll walk you through your own art journal spread.  You'll learn about my process and favorite techniques to help you get your creativity flowing.  I'm a Ranger Ink junkie and have provided a list of the materials used, but you're welcome to bring what you have or use the items provided by My Heart's Fancy ($5 materials fee).  The shop will have many of the supplies available for sampling and purchasing.  You're going to love them!

February Classes

February 2018
Class Schedule!

Our new class schedule debuted on Saturday during Demo Day.  Lisa has really done a bang up job bringing you the best cards and projects ever.  She's responsible for Art Journaling Saturday in February too and I think it's stunning.  Chris Mack will be teaching her Paper Marbling class too and she has a few new tricks up her sleeve for this class.  Can't wait!

Our FREE Make 'n Take was created from stamps by Impression Obsession and everyone enjoyed making this beauty.

We used a card kit designed by Impression Obsession and after stamping the adorable images (created by Lindsay Ostrom!) we colored them in with Clean Color brush markers by Zig.  Awesome recipe for cute and perfect if you still need to write a few thank you notes for those Christmas presents.

We are having a Valentine Swap too and there are a few packets left.  You can run by any day this week to pick up one.  The swaps are soooo much fun!

And now on to the February class schedule!

10 am OR 2 pm

It's Lisa's turn to guide Art Journal Saturday and I know you will really enjoy creating this stunning page.  She'll take you through all the steps to creating this fun and exciting page.  It's much easier than you might think.

Just after Lisa created this set of cards we discovered we would be unable to get the marbled look paper she had used.  They were set aside with disappointment but when we began to see all the new ways to use alcohol inks, Lisa knew this would be the way to bring these cards to the table! It's been a long time since we played with alcohol inks and Lisa will teach you some amazing new techniques and introduce you to Yupo paper!

Weekly Hours

New Store Hours

The times, they are a changin' as it has been said.....  and our store hours will be changing up a bit.  Some have asked for evening hours and we have been unofficially open late on Thusdays for several years.  Lisa and I have changing family obligations and need an extra hour here and there.  That being said, we will be testing a new set of store hours.  Here's what the schedule will look like for February and March.  If it works, we'll stick to it and if not, we'll go back to our original hours.

Beginning Tuesday, February 6

Tuesdays & Wednesdays
11 am to 5 pm

10 am to 8 pm

11 am to 5 pm

11 am to 4 pm

Demo Day Saturday
10 am to 4 pm

You can see that Demo Day and Class day hours will remain the same as they have always been.  Art Journaling Saturday will remain as it is (10 am session and 2 pm session).  We will continue to be closed to the public during Guest Artist workshops.

Adjustments in life are inevitable for everyone.  I hope this new schedule will not cause you any inconvenience.  I have always been willing to stay late for anyone and will continue to do so if you will just call and let me know you are on the way.

Thank you soooooo much for your continued support.  Lisa and I really appreciate each and every one of you.

See you soon and remember to .....
