Trendsetters: Iridescence

While artists of all types have been using iridescent products for a long time, it’s now becoming more in vogue.

Smitten by Art Journaling

The cool part about being a part of the mixed media scene for the last decade is watching trends cross over to the paper crafting world. 

Like Alice Down the Rabbit Hole

"Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her."

Dial Up the Color

Dial Up the Color is a weekly series featuring cool colorants -- from the cool and trendy to the kooky and “say whaaat?”

The Much Anticipated...


I'm a 50/50 girl and I love to happily bounce back and forth between Clean & Simple and Shabby Chic and Luscious Layers & Texture Treats with Distress Paints truly reflects my artistic split personality. The ultimate goal of this class is to start from the bottom up and you'll learn the basics of how to apply Distress paint in a Clean & Simple manner and then dive headlong into creating lots of layers, texture, visual interest and shimmery effects. 

If you’re a fan of Distress paints or if you’ve been thinking about getting into them, I heartily encourage you to grab some before the class starts. While I have the whole collection and will use all of them in the class, I’ll show you how to mix the colors you have to match other colors and how to custom make your own colors. This way you can still get the full benefits of the class without having to buy every color. Although, you can if you want to. I love being able to use all of them for whatever color mood strikes me!  

Class information and complete details on how to register for the class will be released soon.
