Guest Artist Samantha Carlton

Announcing the
taught by
Samantha Carlton

Saturday, April 6
9 am to 12 pm


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.

March Classes

March Class Schedule

Demo Day was fun even though it was cold.  Nick's Tamales arrived at noon and served up the best tamales ever!  If you haven't yet had one, you must try one.  Girl Scouts set up at Fashion Lion.  It was a great day!  Our FREE Make 'n Take was a hit.  We used Oxide Ink Pad reinkers to create a wonderful background for a card.  Check it out!.....

We applied oxide reinkers on glossy cardstock using a brayer, buffed it when dry and then sparkle embossed the word blessed on top.

Lisa has a big schedule for March.  I know you'll find a class that will make you happy.  Cards, Gel Printing and mini shadow boxes.  Such fun!  So here's the schedule.....

Thursday, March 7
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Lisa expands the Make 'n Take card by using the technique on multiple types of papers.  You'll make a large variety of backgrounds and then create a few cards using your favorites.  You'll have enough left-overs to create more cards or use in other mixed media projects.

Saturday, March 9
10 am OR 2 pm
$15 materials fee

Bring your art journal and let's have fun.  Let us guide you through the creation of this art journal page.  We provide most of the materials needed to complete your page.  No two people will create the exact page as you have many choices of paint colors, stencils and various supplies.

Mono printing is all the rage.  Come learn how to use a Gel Printing Plate to create amazing background prints which can be used for all kinds of collage and creative art.  You'll create a large number of prints using paint, stencils and rubber texture plates.  The next class on the schedule uses the prints you make to create a wonderful art journal.

Thursday, March 14

Bring those Gelli prints you made in class Sunday and create this fun art journal with them.  I promise you'll enjoy creating in this journal more than any other as the pages are already started - no blank white page staring you in the face!

Remember Shrinky Dinks?  We now offer shrink plastic that can be run through an ink jet printer!  Lisa will have the images already printed on the shrink for you but after you make these 2 projects, you'll want to make more!  Imagine making shrink art bracelets and more!  This class will be fun so be sure to get in on the fun!
