Dina  Wakley  Classes

Movin' a little slow this week.... BUT it's time to publish that class list as promised.....  These are the classes.  You can start signing up tomorrow by calling or emailing.

All classes are approximately 3 hours long.  You should bring your basic kit to most classes and there will be a limited number of additional supplies required (seriously, minimal).

Without further ado.....  The Classes.....

Friday, July 13 ... 4pm to 7pm

Are you ready for some serious FUN!  Learn how to use spray inks by making this joyful, inky tag book using Dylusions ink sprays and stamps.  Dina will show you five techniques to use with the ink sprays (stenciling, wet on wet, ghosting, oil resist, and gesso resist).  What's exciting is you'll make and fold the book structure from just one sheet of paper.  Then you'll use fun and funky Dylusions stamps to decorate your book.  It's a colorful exlosion of joy!

ENCAUSTIC TAG BOOK, "Dear Self" ..... $50
Sat, July 14 ... 10am to 1pm

Come and learn about the ancient art of encaustics.  We'll be using beeswax and irons to make fun and addicting beeswax collages.  We'll play with stamps, inks, acrylic paint, beeswax..... oh my!  We'll add positive quotes to make the book a wonderful message of hope and encouragement. The tags will go in an accordion book structure that Dina will show you how to create.  Beeswax is fun and addictive..... come and play!

Sat, July 14 ... 2:30 -5:30 pm

Have you been curious about art journaling, but are not sure where to start?  Come and play with Dina!  We'll explore what art journaling is and she will teach you techniques for creating fun and expressive pages.  We'll create backgrounds, image layers, and top texture.  We'll make several pages and you'll get a feel for playing, experimenting, and being free with your art.  Dina also will give you some tips for page topics and writing on your pages.  No previous art experience is required.

Sun, July 15 ... 10am to 1pm

Join Dina for a celebration of background techniques!  We'll start by creating five backgrounds with different techniques -- scraping and lifting, monoprinting with plastic, modeling paste and stencils, watercoloring with spray ink, and gesso with masking tape ... so fun!  Then we'll cut down the backgrounds and bind them into a chunky little book.  You can use your book as a little art journal, a scrapbook, a book of quotes... the sky's the limit. 

As you can see.... these classes are fun and exciting. We have all the samples here for you to look at...  I hope you'll join us for as many as you can.  You will be so glad you do.

That's it for now..... Until next Post..... Happy Creatin'!

Do you have hotel block?

Or do you know of a close and safe hotel?

Hi Laurie.... There are a number of clean, nice and safe hotels within 2 miles of us. Anything on Memorial Road between Penn and Hefner Parkway is good. If you use Orbitz, Expedia or Travelocity, look for something at or near Quail Springs Mall and you will be within 2 to 3 miles of the store. Marriott Courtyard on Memorial Road is new and reasonable.
