Art Melange – a Travel Journal Extravaganza

Standard

Make one for yourself in the series coming on Thursday nights in June:

Art Melange – a Travel Journal Extravaganza
Thursdays June 2- June 30 PLUS a bonus Craft Rave on Saturday June 11, 6pm-11pm ($140 until May 31…then the price goes up to $165)

15 hours of studio time and instruction.  All supplies included.  Minimal/No sewing experience required.

This is a great project for using up all your scrap papers and hand painted papers from previous classes if you want to use them.

This workshop will feature techniques inspired by Teesha Moore, Traci Bautista and Mary Ann Moss.  I am a huge fan of these extraordinary artists and have woven techniques each of them use in their journals into this one workshop.  We will mix and match to create a one-of-a-kind journal ready to accompany you anywhere you go.  The zippered pencil pouch/flap is a bonus so you have your favorite writing tools/glue/paint brush at the ready.

Art Journaling like Teesha

Standard

This past Sunday 8 of us played with Teesha Moore’s art journaling techniques in a class called “Art Journaling like Teesha”

Much creative fun was had by all.  We watched Teesha’s YouTube video demonstrations for inspiration and worked through making a 16 page art journal using the same materials Teesha uses in her own journals.  Here are some pix of the workshop.

How did it get to be May 13?

Standard

I’ve been a bad blogger!  I admit it!

You can correctly assume that means I’ve been super busy in the studio.

This month I’m trying something new.  Since the book club format has been so successful for the past 4 months I’ve added a book to Wednesday nights as well.  It is working out splendidly.  It is nice focusing on Scrapbooking one night a week.  I’ve missed it.  Scrapbooking was my first love at the very beginning of this business nearly 11 years ago.  While I’ve jumped out of that box and played with wild and reckless abandon, I still love designing pages with photos.

What I’m super excited about at this very moment is the fact that TEESHA MOORE!!  is coming in less than 48 hours!  Can’t believe how lucky we are to have her coming here to teach.  She is a major art idol for me and I hope I don’t totally geek out when I get to meet her!

So, speaking of my art idol, who are YOUR art idols?

Comment with your favorites and maybe, just maybe we’ll get them to come and teach here too!

Building a Crafty Community

Standard

Our mission here is to build a community of like-minded creatives.

If you see the potential in the things we have collected here, if it inspires a spark inside of you…we want you to join our community. You need to be here, we need you here, the creative community will be better with your active participation.

How do we go about this? That is where YOU come in. We can do all the legwork imaginable but the community isn’t about us, it is about YOU. We listen when you tell us what is inspiring to you, we ask who you follow, we encourage “outside-the-box” thinking (relish it even!) Following those cues we have scheduled outside instructors, artists and authors to come, teach and inspire.

The growth of our community through inspiring instruction is an exciting thing.
