March 2018 Schedule


Great Demo Day on Saturday!  Our FREE Make 'n Take was this wonderful card featuring the Letter It collection from Ranger.  

You will want to check out this amazing schedule.  Lisa has really created some wonderful classes with new techniques and products.  In place of Art Journling Saturday this month we have Samantha Carlton showing you how to recreate her art journal spread using Dina Wakley products.  It was featured on the Ranger Ink blog!

So here it is the March schedule.....

Sweet Notes
Thursday, March 1
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Using new stamps from RubberMoon Art Stamps you will create this incredibly cute set of note cards.  I mean....  how can you resist these???  

Tag It "Fun Day"
Sunday March 4
2 pm to 5:30 pm

Here's the perfect opportunity to learn gel printing also known as mono printing.  You'll make tags using Dina Wakley's paint & stamps, stencils and Dina's new washi tapes.  You will also get to play with the newest Scribble Sticks!  Bring your gel printing plate and brayer if you have one or Lisa has borrowed a few for you to share.  I think you'll find gel printing too much fun and want your own gel plates!

Mixed Media Mini Book
Thursday March 8
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Lisa calls this her "Smile Journal".  You can call yours whatever you like, but you will want to make one for sure!  Using Dina Wakley paints you will fill a blank sheet of paper with smudges and marks, then cut it up and put it together.  Then you'll add more with stamps.  It's awesome!

One Stamp 4 Ways

Lisa uses Tim Holtz's new Glorious Bouquet stamp to create these 4 cards in 4 different ways.  This stamp is so beautiful and it even comes with it's own mount as it is one of the largest stamps you have ever seen.  If you want the stamp, let us know so we can have it for you when you take the class.

Halo Santos Class

Pam Carriker has designed new stencils for Stencil Girl and when Lisa saw what she did with them she was inspired to try.  Don't think you can create a face?  You don't have to be able.... let Lisa show you how easy it is using stencils, paint, pens and modeling paste.  You will go home with an amazing masterpiece that only you could have created!

Ranger Journal Page Lesson

Scarlton Mini Art Journal Workshop
Saturday, March 10
10 am to 12 pm

Samantha Carlton is a local artist I have become acquainted with through the store and she was recently selected as a Ranger blog contributor featuring Dina Wakley products.  She and I were talking and we decided it would be fun for her to "teach" her 1st Art Journal contribution. 

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!
