Arizona ART and a tip...

Next stop on this art adventure (YIPPEE...it's next week) is Frenzy Stamper in Arizona.

Debbie Bick (the owner) asked for something extra artsy for her customers.

I had heard that "inchies" were really popular there, so I wanted to to be sure to incorporate some in the class.

Here's what we'll be creating in an 8 inch square BLACK frame.



This class uses lots of products. The background is made with distress inks & Perfect Pearls. Just a little shine adds a lot to the look.

We'll use studio490 stamps, tim's stamps and other Stampers Anonymous rubber too.

We'll be stamping on grungeboard and using chipboard.

And speaking of chipboard...here's a little something I figured out...

I LOVE Maya Road's foundations tin. I've probably used up about 20 tins myself. Each tin has rectangles, squares, circles & ovals. They are perfect for framing a saying & a whole lot of other things too...

The circles make fun flowers...You probably KNEW that was coming.....

I'm way too predictable.

Anyway...

I NEEDED brackets for this piece, but they had to be simple & small. Checked my stash...NOTHING...

SO...............this...



made this..............GREAT size & shape...I LOVE it when the lightbulb is on full force, which is not every day... unfortunately.

I've lectured before to look @ the possibilities of what something COULD be...so I took my own advice here.




Here's a better look @ those "inchies". I have to admit...small is fun, but TINY is a TOTAL blast!




Now I need to find more frames like this so we can repeat this class in other places. I've completely used up my stash
of these cool 8 x 8's.


***Any ideas???***

I'm so looking foreward to seeing Sharon & Lisa again and I can't wait to meet some new art friends too.

And an extra perk for me...



ARIZONA IS WARM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So...in Arizona, we'll...


MAKE ART!

Oops...almost forgot...one more thing...I'm still thinking about the possibility of making extra class kits & having them available here.
THANKS so much for your interest...I'll keep you informed.
