We are excited to announce we are offering another Wendy Vecchi Class
BEYOND Basic Backgrounds ...
Friday May 18th at 6:00pm
Actually it should be called...WAY beyond basic backgrounds!
Learning how to make great backgrounds will take your art to the next level.
You’ll find that these multilayered backgrounds are the perfect starting point for card making, altered art projects & for the newly popular art journals. You’ll never fear that blank white space again, once you learn these simple steps.
In this techniques class, you’ll create beautiful backgrounds made with distress stains & inks, stencils, studio 490 stamps, archival inks, Tim’s new water brushes & also some random ITEMS that will be YOURS to take home. The key “ingredient” is Ranger’s brand new “Specialty Stamping Paper”....this paper is unbelievably versatile & TOTALLY wonderful! Prepare to be amazed as we start with an ATC, then move on to more larger “arts” that can be framed or added to your art journal... or even to your inspiration station.
There will be plenty of choices & the art YOU CREATE will be unique. This workshop will help you develop YOUR style.
If you want to expand your arty skills, get the most from the products you already own, test drive a new arty style & take your art to the next level...
I’ll see you in WAY Beyond Basic Backgrounds .
Inspiration Station is just that! A place to record your ideas & a place to try new techniques. It's a unique art journal of sorts. Since the pages are easily removable & replaceable, there's no need to worry about ruining your book. We will ink, stamp & stain to create & construct this journal completely from scratch.
This design can also be transformed into a mini scrapbook, if you so desire.
In this workshop we'll use lots of fun products including studio 490 art parts and stamps, Tim Holtz Idea-ology goodness, lots of Ranger inks and some grungeboard too.
We'll play with the new distress stains & there are a few surprise techniques included too.

At first glance, a Zentangle creation can seem intricate and complicated. But, when you learn how it is done, you realize how simple it is . . . sort of like learning the secret behind a magic trick. Then, when you create a piece of Zentangle art, you realize how fun and engrossing the process itself is.
We received lots of boxes today and in one of them was the new
