Pieces of Me
What do you see when you look at a piece of art? Do you ever wonder what choices the artist made in order to hide messages with the work? How they incorporate signs and symbols to cleverly camouflage personal devotions in plain sight? - You know, the kinds of things that make your work privately special to you. In this workshop we will not only explore the new Tim Holtz Oxide Inks to create a colorful background for a 9 x 12” wood panel but each piece will be filled with personal devotions. It will reflect your feelings and emotions about the people you care about most and the joys they bring you.
If you love vintage like I do, you will love this 12 x 6 x 1 1/4” wood panel. Distress Paint, Memoranda Paper and new Stampers Anonymous Stencils will transform a simple wood box into a piece of art. Add in layers of idea-ology products including the new Tim Holtz Foam Stamps (plus a little trick for perfect stamping) and you have the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love.
We’ve all saved them; that scrap of vintage ribbon, the random postcard, or found trinkets. These are the treasures of our sentimental journey through life that qualify us as part of the “Vagabond Society.” Join me in a paying homage to eclectic gathering in creating a 5 x 7” zig-zag book to showcase and celebrate the art of accumulation. The ephemera inspired Memoranda paper, idea-ology metal trinkets as well as some vintage finds will transform the simple foundation into a layered book that unfolds to tell your story in a very unique way. We will be working with Ranger Distress Grit-Paste, crayons, paints and inks. Combined with Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils for added details and we’ve got a vintage look you’ll love.
