Join us Tuesday, March 5, for the next in our series of Demos with Dee! Dee has been inspired lately by some of the work being done on the Penny Black blog, and wants to share some of the tips and techniques she's discovered in working with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder! It's hard to see the dimension in this tag, but it's breathtaking in person! Stop in between 12-2 on Tuesday, and let her show you some fun new methods for working with UTEE! No reservation is required.
Then, if you're enjoying the look of extra dimension, why not come back Tuesday evening for the class with Guest Artist Cheryl Boglioli? She has created an amazing canvas using Beeswax and Encaustic wax for a fabulous collage look! There are still a few spaces available for this workshop, so reserve yours today!

Claudine Hellmuth released a new line of stencils at CHA, and we have them all at the store. If you haven't ever worked with stencils, or if you are interested in increasing your stencil technique repertoire, you are going to love this video. It is a bit long, but it is also like getting a free stencil class by a leading multimedia artist.
Here are some of the topics covered in the video:
- Direct stenciling using tissue paper
- Reverse stenciling
- Gesso texture technique
- Metal embossing using stencils and Ranger foil tape
- Cleaning stencils
The video also shows you how to use many of Claudine's awesome products:
- Claudine's acrylic paints
- Matte Medium
- Extra Time/Slow Dry Medium
- Black Gesso
Of course, we have all the goodies to help you play!

It is Saturday, and Paula and I are at the store. We were just talking about Inky Antics and their Honeypop cards (which we both love). Paula has a ton supplies and samples with her, so we are going to have an impromptu Honeypop demo today at the store (10am-5pm). If you missed the Open House, and are curious about Honeypops, stop in for a lesson. Paula said she will also be showing people color pencils and Gamsol if you are also curious about those materials as well.
We hope to see you today!
