Nathalie Metivier Brought a Little Shimmer to our Store!

So did you get to meet Nathalie Metivier during her recent visit to our store?  I was thrilled to be able to attend two of her classes - wow, she's so wonderful!  What a sweet, gentle soul she is :)  Here's a few pictures of her teaching:

Just look at how everyone is nice and quiet and paying such good attention.  It must be the French accent - it puts you in a good mood before you even start doing anything!  Needless to say, her classes were all a great success.  One of my favorite cards was this fish one:

OK, so you can't see it in the picture unfortunately, but these fish actually have an amazing shimmer that makes them look just like real little silvery fishes swimming in the sea.  And how was that effect achieved?  With US Art Quests Mica Color Palettes, which we now have in stock!

These are incredibly rich pigment watercolors with real mica luster... just spritz with water and paint on your card.  These are so easy to use, and the mica gives brilliant shimmer.   Each palette has ten colors grouped by color sets: vintage, stargazer, metallic, and interference.   Pick out your favorite palette and give it a try - you won't be disappointed!
