Penny Black Painted Cards
Thursday September 11th 12-2:30 PM
Also, Sunday September 14th 1-3:30 PM
It took me a while to reproduce the amazing Penny Black sample board but I finally did it!  Join me for 4 cards.  You will learn how to use the Ranger Paint Daubers to create beautiful backgrounds and then use colored pencils and white paint to color the images.  $28

Please bring scissors, adhesive, pop dots, and all your colored pencils any brand you have.  I used Prisma colored pencils but Inktense work great also.  Not all brands of colored pencils will work as good but bring them to try out.  We will have some to share and to purchase.    You can also bring paint daubers in Mountain Rose, Red Pepper, Cloudy Blue, Stream and Butterscotch.

Scrapbooking and Journaling through the Hard Times

Life is always a roller coaster ride of ups and downs but it seems this year in particular has included a lot of dips for some of us and many of our customers. Can this hobby we love help us through the hard times? We believe it can. If you’ve experienced the loss of a loved one; a major life change like divorce or layoff; are dealing with your own health issues; or are in the difficult position of being a caregiver for someone else in recovery; then please join us for an evening of learning and creating to help us all begin or continue the healing process.  Gina A. will guide you in making a mini album where you can privately include your feelings, photos and remembrances, and/or faith based prayers and bible quotes.  You’ll receive information about the therapeutic benefits of the arts in our lives as well as journaling and creative suggestions. Whether you want to share a little, a lot, or not at all, everyone will leave with a personalized mini book and a lot of helpful tips for moving forward in challenging times.   $26
