It's been a busy two day's here at Ranger...well, maybe I should have said, CRAZY busy here in class.  Things move VERY fast so you have to be on your toes at all times, listening, absorbing, and then doing.  Our fingers are so stained with the different inks that it is almost comical.
We feel we have lucked out by having some great ladies at our table...Sue sits in front of me and Megan Darrow from 10 Seconds Studio is on my right...Deb on my left.  Then there's Margie down the table with Carolyn Peeler and many others.  We have laughed a lot which makes every situation better.
Don't have much time tonight (since it's spring forward) but thought I would share some photos of our adventures in paint, UTEE, and distress ink.  Tomorrow is Alcohol Ink and it's supposed to be the most intense day of the 3 days.  Were just hoping to make it to the end :)

 Debbie using a craft iron to finish a distress ink wrinkle tag.  These were some of the most fun to make.  Simple, easy and fabulous color.  The best part was that everyone's tags looked different...nothing cookie cutter here.

this one was done with a mask and Distress Ink
Megan's tags

The weather has been horrible here as you may have heard on the news.  Margie's umbrella was not faring well between the wind and heavy rain. 
Bye for now...keep your fingers crossed for us tomorrow!


  1. What fun! I love that crinkle distressy stuff! Will you do a tutorial? The tags are fabulous!
    Have a great day! Sherry

  2. Looks like lots of fun! I hope you'll post pictures of your technicolored hands when it's all done! That's the sign of a truly good time being had when you don't worry how much you're getting dirty and stained.

  3. Wow!! What fun!! :) I need classes like that.

  4. Oooo...I wish I was there! It looks like you are all having a FABULOUS time! I can't wait to read more about your adventures!

  5. Ooh! Those tags are divine. Good luck with the fast pace instruction. I know my head would be spinning, and probably fly off my neck if I was there.

  6. Intrigued by the wrinkle tags! Stay safe and dry. (Sorry, it's the "Mom" in me...)
