Classes April 2019


April 2019 
Class Schedule

We have a lot of fun classes this month.  If you didn't make it to Demo Day Saturday, you need to come by.  I know you are going to love at least one class and probably more!  And we made this really cute Easter card for Make 'n Take.  We didn't have the supplies we used for sale as the items we were originally going to use didn't arrive.  We grabbed two stamps we had and voila' - quick and easy Easter card! We took orders for the stamps and supplies used on Demo Day and are ordering a few extra, so if you want to make this card too you can get the supplies as well.  


Both stamps used are by Impression Obsession.  The "Amazing Grace" stamp was stamped with Shadow Gray Archival Ink by Ranger and the Lamb was stamped with Black Versafine and embossed in clear.  We used Stabilo Woody watersoluable crayon/pencils to watercolor both the shadows and the tiny flowers, leaves and inside of the ears.

And now..... drumroll..... the April schedule!

More New Products


More New Products
from
Various Companies


As I mentioned in the Ranger/Tim Holtz blog post, we received a lovely group of new products in February.  Here's a brief overview of the rest (but not least).


From RubberMoon Rubber Stamps - Cute new collection by Kae Pea called "Wires & Beads".  Kae Pea is really creative and this collection was on her heart for a long time until she finally had to get them out.  The bead stamps are available in a 4 piece set. The wires are available as a set of their own and everything is available in a large set.  They are all here and available!  Kae Pea's Facebook Live video can be seen here...  "FB Live Wires & Beads"  It's a "New Year" video but is the official reveal of the stamps. 

From Ranger - New Sari Ribbon packs in neutral and bright.  5 yards in each pack!  Absolutely beautiful.....

Stamper's Anonymous - New Tim Holtz stamps and stencils. Perfect for mixed media nuts. 'Nuf said - you know you need 'em!

Caran D'Ache - NeoColor II water soluable wax pastel crayons in 15, 30 & 40 piece sets.  We introduced them in Art Journal Saturday and if you'd like to try them, come by for a demo.

Stabilo - Maker of the infamous "All" Pencil comes the "Woody" pencil (not pictured above). It's a creamy water soluable crayon in a wood pencil.  Also introduced in Art Journal Saturday.  Haven't seen them?  Drop by for a try it before you buy it demo.  Very popular with Art Journal Saturday students.

Drop by to see any or all of these new products.  There are more new items coming from Dina Wakley and Wendy Vecchi.  I'll let you know more when they arrive.  See you soon and remember to .....

New Goodies


New Products from Ranger
for TIM HOLTZ

It's always exciting when new goodies arrive.  February brought us new products from Tim Holtz.  Distress Oxide Sprays, Archival Ink Pads & Ranger's Pearl Alcohol Inks.



Distress OXIDE Sprays are very cool.....  Lot's of examples are all over Instagram these days.  I haven't personally had time to play with them and neither has Lisa, but I'm pretty sure she'll get some play time and there will be a class.

Archival Ink Pads - Yay!  This is my biggest dream come true about Distress products.  I love the colors, but I'm not fond of the "always comes back to life" of the products.  I love Archival Ink Pads so this is a "happy dance" for me.  12 colors in the first release in 3 sets.

Ranger's Pearl Alcohol Inks - Such a great new product.  Alcohol inks are making a comeback and these just increase their fun.  The Pearls are different and Lisa has been playing with them.  She's impressed and I am pretty certain there will be a class using these coming soon.

For a wonderful explanation of all 3 of these you can hear Tim himself explain the different properties of each here...... Creativation Live - Tim Holtz (it's a lengthy but informative YouTube video).

Stay tuned for an additonal blog post about other new products we received in February.

Hope to see you soon and remember to ....

Guest Artist Samantha Carlton



Announcing the
COLLAGE FLORALS
workshop
taught by
Samantha Carlton

Saturday, April 6
9 am to 12 pm

$25



Samantha and I have been talking about an abstract floral class for a while.  We finally settled on a date and here's the scoop!

Spend your Saturday morning with Samantha as we create abstract florals using gel plates and original collage.  If you can tear paper and paste it to a surface, you can take this class!  Experienced creators will totally enjoy this class too!

First we'll create unique collage paper using monoprinting techniques on gel plates.  (Monoprinting is a fancy term for printing one color at a time also known as "one pass" printing).  Next we'll use our original collage paper to shape flowers and leaves.  Finally, we'll compose our very own abstract florals for you to enjoy.

Supplies students need to bring:
  • 20+ sheets of 8.5"x11" papers - any printer paper weight paper you have on hand including but not limited to "trash" papers, book papers, drawing papers, junk mail.  Avoid heavy papers such as scrapbook paper.
  • Acrylic Paint - any color will do, but if you want, stick to natural colors such as greens (leaves and stems), pinks, blues, peaches, yellows (flowers).  You don't have to use traditional/natural colors.
  • Brayer - consider bringing one for paint and one for flattening your collage work.
  • Gel Plate - My Heart's Fancy has at least 10 to share if you don't have one.
  • Scissors - Fussy cut.  
  • Glue stick such as UHU (MHF will provide some to share)
  • Your favorite substrate - Canvas, paper, art journal, Bristol, canvas board, cradle board
  • Black waterproof pen.
  • Texture stamps - your favorite.  MHF will have some to share.
  • Stencils & masks - your favorite - MHF will have some to share.
These items are necessary to accurately follow along, but you should use the products that make you happy.  All items needed can be purchased here at My Heart's Fancy.  Please call the store at 405-509-6788 if you have questions about the supplies. 

ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN!  You may enroll by phone, email, or in person.  Class Fees are due at the time of enrollment.  If you have made a reservation by phone or email, you must make payment within 48 hours to reserve your place in class.  You may pay by cash, check or credit card in the store or by Paypal if unable to come by in person.  

Space is limited so enroll today!  It's going to be fun.
