We had such a great time on Saturday with visiting artist Claudine Hellmuth! She showed us some amazing tricks for working with her matte medium, studio paints and sticky-backed canvas. Did you know you can run the canvas through the cuttlebug and emboss it? You can also gently curl the edges (like she did with the coral flower on her scarf) and it will stay curled. And, even though there are just 15 colors of paint, Claudine showed us the paint mixing chart she has created for very simply mixing a total of 51 colors. You can download this chart for yourself on her website! Two hours was not enough time to pick her very talented brain, so Claudine and I are working on a date for her to come back and teach some full-length classes in the new year. I'll keep you posted on that!
Switching gears....here is the other make-and-take we'll be doing at the Holiday Open House on Saturday, Dec. 6. As our dear Donna likes to say, "It's just stinkin' cute"! For $10, you can participate in both make-and-take projects, and also catch the demos as well. Fun!
