with Joanne Sharpe
***Friday, November 7-All day class with Joanne Sharpe
On Friday, November 7, Joanne is returning to hone our lettering skills. This is called the "Artful Lettering Book Tour" class. In this class you will create a journal just like the one shown in her book, and Joanne will cover about a dozen of her favorite techniques for the book.
This journal will serve as a great source of inspiration for you, and you can practice and add to the book...and even make new ones as it fills. If you already have a copy of her book, The Art of Whimsical Lettering, you will need to bring it to class, along with a composition book, a few glue sticks, and your "pen stash." Also, some smaller pieces of decorative paper, or scrapbook patterned paper will be a good addition to the book. There will be more details on what to bring in the next newsletter.
Class space is limited, and the class cost is $65, non-refundable.
Class will run on Friday, Nov. 7, from 10am-4pm, with a lunch break.
Tick Tock--It's a Contest!!
Go to this website, and check out all the entries in the challenge shown on the blog, form August 30...scroll down, it's worth it...all the way to the bottom...there are probably 20 or more samples for inspiration...and then read the article below!!
We are having a "Holiday Clock" event...come in and purchase one of the 19 clocks Update-we have four left!! we have, Tim Holtz -Style. Create a holiday delight inside the clock, return the clock to us, for viewing, by the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and we will have some impartial judges (none of the staff!) The winner will receive one of the new blue Big Shot machines, plus a $50 gift certificate to the store (How great if you won this and made it a gift for someone!!)
Upon returning the clock, you will get the price of the clock restored to your account as a credit (That makes the clock FREE!!) Plus, the clock is yours to take home after December 15, to use in your home decor.
Right, that is not a Christmas clock...but its just an idea starter.
Please remember, we only have 19 of these "contest entries" available. We are happy to do phone orders with cc payments, shipping will be extra, but you must get the clock to us in a timely manner!! (see what I did there?)
Saturday & Sunday, November 8 & 9, 2014
Spend the weekend with Joanne sharpe and Sue Pelletier, creating the best mixed media journal you ever saw. On Saturday, there are two sessions with Sue in the lead (Joanne will be helping!), creating the canvas board covers, so that they can dry overnight. Then, on Sunday Joanne takes the lead (and Sue is on the assist team) with the journal pages and drawing techniques for the innards of the book.
The finished product will be an artful book that can stand up in the open position and be an inspiration to you and all who know you.
This is a full weekend event, and the cost is $200 for all four sessions, and whatever materials the teacher provides. There will be a list of what you need to bring, and it will be posted in an upcoming newsletter. Again, spaces are limited. We are delighted to have these two very talented teachers teaming up and presenting this weekend here, for the first time anywhere.
