FINNABAIR IS RETURNING TO SCRAP ADDICTS!!


July 2 &3 - She will be teaching 4 FABULOUS classes....we can't wait!

To guarantee your spot, a $25 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT PER CLASS must be paid, with the balance due by June 10th. Call the store now to register!


SATURDAY JULY 2 - 9am - 1 pm
VERDIGRIS - $165

A fabric based collage with eye-catching finish!



Do you want to create really artsy, dimensional and grungy collage, but you think you don’t have “suitable supplies?” That is not a problem! The most important thing in creative process is using imagination. We are surrounded by inspiring objects, which we can use for creating art of different kinds. Try to look around – and you’ll find real treasures in your own house! 
During this workshop I will guide you to create your own mixed-media canvas, starting with building layers using fabric and Art Extravagance Sculpture Medium. We will make composition including my favourite set of embellishments and a found object and next colour it all to get pretty, verdigris and patina inspired effect. We will focus on such mediums from my line as White Heavy Gesso, Heavy body Gel, Soft Gel and more. I will demonstrate possibilities of mixing different Art Ingredients such as Mica Powders, Fine Glitter and Art stones to get the expected results. We will build our projects step-by-step and and you will see that presented techniques are very versatile and be easily used on many other projects. I'll share my experience with you and try to give you plenty of information about tools and products used.
Teacher will supply all the paints, mediums needed to finish the project (excluding the found object). This class is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.

SATURDAY JULY 2 - 2pm - 6 pm
OVER EMOTIONAL - $165

Mixed-media Collage on double canvas. Great chance to get friendly with gels, gesso, sprays, pencils and a touch of stamping.

For me collage is one of the most natural ways of communicating my moods, thoughts and emotions – maybe that's why I keep using my own face for most of my projects. I love the process of creating the “costume” and “scenery” for the actors in my small collage theater – and I want you to try it too! “Overemotional” is a canvas project wit more air and negative space yet rich in details and layers. You will be able to try combining such material as fabric, lace, flowers with metal and plastic objects and grungy findings of all kinds to create textured, rich composition as well as trying techniques based on heavy gel, gesso, sprays and stamping – all this to create one, unique project. I'll help you to create balanced composition and getting the best effects sharing my experience and creating new full project with you step-by-step. You will be able to choose colors reflecting your taste and personality and experiment with stamping, coloring and using pencils and watercolor pencils for the finishing touches. “Overemotional is 4 hours of pure creative fun with your fingers dirty in gesso, inks and paints – you can't miss it!
All the elements, paints and mediums are provided – this project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.


SUNDAY JULY 3 - 9AM - 1PM
BOOK OF RUST - $140

Amazing altered book cover with really a fantastic rust effect.

It is all about the inspiring power of rust! If you like worn-out, salvage look and would like to try exciting and effective techniques – this is a class for you! This finish is perfect for any vintage, steampunk or grunge inspired projects and will give you a chance to achieve more heavy, masculine look on any kind of project. Bring your own book for a complete mixed-media makeover which will change it into real, old and rusty treasure.
Together we will apply a selection of techniques based on Art Basics, Art Extravagance and Art Ingredients art mediums which will transform your plain book cover - we will try Crackle and Rust Effect Pastes, Mica Powders, Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints and more! I will share my experience, demonstrate steps and techniques and give you advise to make sure you will get the best effects but there will be space for experiments and a lot of fun!


SUNDAY JULY 3 - 2PM - 6PM
RUSTY RELIC - $140

Carve a frame inside a book and create a beautiful heavily antiqued composition.


We will focus on carving a frame inside of the book and creating beautiful, heavily antiqued composition using Modeling Paste, Rust Pastes, Art Alchemy Paints and more – it will be a perfect add on to your cover and a chance to create unique piece which will be great gift or your own personal treasure.
I will provide a full set of art mediums and embellishments to finish the project – excluding the hard-cover book. This class is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.

What a Weekend!!!!!!

Our store has recovered....and we think we have too!
We had such an amazing weekend with the fabulous Dyan Reaveley...for those of you that weren't able to join us, you missed such a great time!
Dyan was so genuine and down to earth and truly made this such a special weekend for everyone - we were flooded by phone calls, Facebook posts, and emails after the weekend letting us know how much everyone enjoyed not only the classes, but Dyan herself.
We definitely have big plans in the works with her for next year...so STAY TUNED!!
Enjoy some of the photos from the weekend
Dylusions Sprays....there's just nothing like them!

Not only did she make time to sign everyone's goodies, she left a little something in the store for us too!

Dyan graciously agreed to an open house at the store - thank you for giving up some of your free time!

Dylusions Paints

We were so thankful for the document camera - not a bad seat to be had!

I wish I could have fit all 50 students' hands in this photo!!

I love how different everyone's creations turn out!


Oh those paints....we LOVE them!!



Early morning...note how clean the tables are before we start!



Okay....I even told Dyan that I never loved the deer heads.....until this!!



See those hands on the far right??  Well....she has been taking classes with me for over 5 years and always resisted Mixed Media...but I think Dyan has drawn her to the "dark" side!!


Look how beautiful these pages are!!





All packed up....and a little tired!!



Thank you Dyan for an AMAZING weekend - we can't wait to share our plans for next year!!
