New Class Schedule

We always have so much fun on Demo Day.  Lisa had fun directing everyone in the making of this lovely Make 'n Take.....


We used stamps and coordinating dies from Concord & 9th to create the wreath.  Concord & 9th is a new company we recently became acquainted with and we are really loving their products.  Ink pads and gold embossing powder from Ranger.  

Lisa has a great class schedule for November.  Lots of Christmas Cards and 2 great classes using the Master Page Create - Christmas.  You don't have to take the Master Page Create class to do the card or canvas class.  You can use a copy made from hers.

 So without any further delay, here is the schedule!

This has become a favorite "class" for us and our artists are having a blast.  Every month Lisa or I create an art journal page and guide you, the artist, through the creation of your very own version.

This month Lisa has created this colorful page using Dylusions sprays, stamps from Dina Wakley and an assortment of stencils.  You provide the art journal and we provide most of the other supplies.

Jodi Ohl


Workshop Recap
Jodi Ohl's
2 Day Zen Painting Workshop

Oh my!  Did we ever have fun learning abstract painting techniques from Jodi Ohl!  Seriously, it was fun and exciting.  Jodi was such a great teacher.  She guided us through the steps with ease and Lisa and I were lucky enough to get to join in.  What a great experience!

So we started day 1 with 4 mini gesso boards and we learned a number of shading and doodling techniques.  Then we spend time putting those techniques to work.....




And on day 2 we created a larger composition and added color.  Everyone's work was amazing and unique to the artist.....






You can see how different and unique each one is.  Thanks, Andi, Mary, and Teresa for letting me photo you guys in action.  

Loved this wonderful workshop and can't believe I didn't get a photo of Jodi in action.  We're already working on the next one for fall of 2018, so if you missed this one, make plans to treat yourself to the next one!

Eileen Hull


Paper Trail 15
with
Eileen Hull

It is with heavy heart that I announce Eileen has had to cancel the Paper Trail 15 tour.  Eileen's father's health has declined to the point it was felt she should return home.

For those of you who don't know Eileen, she is an artist, author, product designer and adventurer.  She licenses her die designs with Sizzix and unique ink applicators with Clearsnap.  She purchased a vintage trailer, Scotty, on eBay and outfitted it as a mobile studio.  She now travels cross-country on the Paper Trail and teaches at stores, retreats and events.  She has logged over 43,000 miles in the past 3 years and has visited 30+ states.  Her home is Herndon, VA where she lives with her husband.  Visit her website to read about her latest travels and adventures!

I am sure Eileen will resume the tour sometime next year when things return to normal.  And I am planning to have her when that time comes so stay tuned, watch for the announcement and remember to .....
