Today, six of us worked in the studio marbling. It was all about experimentation — trying different kinds of paper from pages from a book printed in 1880 to water color to typing paper; playing with different paints — premixed acrylics, enamels, mixing our own enamels; paper coated with mordant and some without… We had some, not quite failures, but unexpected results and some attempts we really liked.
After drying and ironing the paper, we made some cards, a keepsake multi-media piece, a tag with drawing, and more…
What does the rest of the week hold?
Tuesday: I’m in the studio all day. I’ll probably be working on some Artist Trading Cards. Stop by and check out the studio or do some art with me. In the evening, we’ll be making accordion books.
Wednesday: I’m in the studio all day. Bring your own project and let’s work together or come for Open Studio time and use my Cricut machine or embossing folders, stamps, stencils, gelli pads, and more.
Thursday: The Stepping Stone Class has been canceled.
Friday: I’ll be in all day. Have a couple of friends who’d like to get together? It’s not too late to schedule a workshop. You can come up with the topic or I’ll help you. Maybe you’d like to carve rubber stamps? Make a mosaic? Build with clay? Or just scrapbook together?
Saturday: 6-9 pm is our Coloring Together time. It’s free. Bring your coloring book, a treat to share, or just yourself. It’s a great time to relax, talk, laugh, enjoy the sunset. Note: I have a selection of coloring books for sale if you need one.
NEWSFLASH! Saturday’s Wood Burning Class has been rescheduled to Sept. 17. We still have room for two more participants. Info on the class can be found on this website or by contacting me.
Two other courses that are coming up soon:
- Radical Dimensions in Glass by Kelley Knickerbocker. Oct. 1 & 2. REGISTER NOW!
