May 3 – No class.
May 10 – Rusty Pickle Kit – I continue to find Rusty’s kits that have been stowed away! What a treat! Using brand new 7 Gypsies papers from my TX trip this kit will live up to Lance’s (aka Rusty) kit-design expectations – various doodads, coordinated papers, fibers, etc. The result will be a wonderful, spring album. $20.
May 17 – Never Too Late Mixed Media Canvas – Perfect papers, bubble wrap stamping, and a timely verbiage (“It is never too late to be what you might have become.”) are combined on a 8×10”ish framed canvas. This is FUN! $20.
May 24 – Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate™ Technique- My recent visit to Santa Fe’s Guadalupe Stamp Store tempted me with the new Gelli Printing Plate™. This is a totally new technique for us – acrylic paint and the gel pad work together to create super, unusual backgrounds, AND I’ll show you how to make your own gel plate. Totop it off, you’ll see how easy it is to make artist tape, thanks to a recent issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. $20.
May 31 – Inspiraton Board – The new burlap panels from the T!m Holtz District Market™ collection inspire this memo board project that he calls his “Inspiration Board.” Foam board will be covered with a good-looking paper before it is popped in a painted and waxed 12×12” frame. To finish the project, you’ll make a few embellished pushpins to jazz up the memo board. A bin drawer handle will be added upsidedown to hold the pins! Classy! $20.
