Ready or not August is on it's way and Lisa's class schedule for August was revealed Saturday on Demo Day.  She also created a fabulous Make 'n Take that was a tease of her August 9th Gelli Print Fun Cards Class.  Don't you think this is a fun card?

Samantha Carlton is teaching August 11

Samantha Carlton
 Ranger Art Journal Page

August 11
10 am to 12 noon
Supplies included
You bring your art journal

Samantha is one of my favorite local artists.  She often brings her two delightful boys, Liam and Murray in for a visit when she shops for art supplies.  She is a self professed Ranger art junkie and Dina Wakley groupie.  She is known as Scarlton in the art world and can be found on Instagram as scarlyton  (@scarlyton) and I encourage you to follow her.  She posts some awesome stuff. She creates what she calls "intuitive abstract art" because it allows her to step aside from critical thinking and paint from a place of mindfulness,  During the day she is a licensed therapist and enjoys teaching, creating, and reading.  Her art can also be seen on the Ranger Ink Blog.  Her work can be purchased directly through her social media channels. 

Anyhoo, she has another really fun page to teach you and I think you'll enjoy this one as much as the last one.  Here is the sample.
