We have had a special request ~

And you all know how we love to accommodate our customers!! The request is for a special class this Saturday with Mike Putman
to teach his Old World Journey's Beeswax Collage class. This is the master beeswax collage technique class. In this class students will have four themed journey kits to choose from: Pretty Paris, Romancing Rome, Victorian London, or Gypsy Travels. In this class you will be introduced to the use of beeswax for collage and scrap booking. Topics taught will be different applications for beeswax, safety, tools, basic technique and styles. Other topics that we will touch upon include image searching, layout, and storytelling within your art. All students will create a 10x10 collaged beeswax panel. Special instruction will be on coloring your pieces, the cool effect of transparencies, styling with wax imprinting, stamping into wax, and popping your piece with pigments. After students have chosen a kit- they will be able to choose many more rich images and exciting embellishments to further help tell a dynamic story. All supplies will be provided.

I know it's short notice, but if you've wanted to play with beeswax and you're free on Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. give us a call!

If you would like to find out if you will like working with beeswax we are having a free make-n-take tomorrow evening, Wednesday, July 30th from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Mike has once again created a fun project for you to learn basic beeswax techniques!

Also, on Saturday from 3:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Suzette is teaching her "If The Shoe Fits" book.
This whimsical mini album was designed for you Girlie Girls. It is a must keep book for yourself, although we're sure you will want to make many more for best girlfriends, daughters, sisters, etc. In this class you will be free to create, layer, and collage. Using vintage and found ephemera, words, quotes, and charms. Learn distress ink techniques, aged edging, cool uses of alcohol ink, and other household items. Not to mention the amazing wire shoe you will create for the front cover. This dimensional collage book will be a unique piece of art for you or someone close to you to treasure always. So, if the shoe fits...wear it!

There are still a few spots left in each class so if you have some free time on Saturday and want to create give us a call!
