Gelli Plates with Acrylics and Stencils
Sue Rosenberg
Friday, March 28
10 AM - 2 PM

Sue writes:  We will be working with 6X6, 8X10, and 8" circular Gelli Plates, happily and messily doing what I call "fingerpainting with brayers," applying layers of acrylic paints, stenciling, etc.  It will be crazy and so much fun!  These prints can then be used as backgrounds for cards, journals, altered books, and many other mixed media projects.  I will do demos and work with all of you individually; we should have time to create at least a couple of cards.  Bring an apron or something else to keep your clothing safe (forget about your hands!) and your class kit--I will provide everything else.  Class size is limited to six.

Photos:  Circle pic is one layer; butterfly woman is two layers; woman outline is three layers.

Metal Madness I: Rhenea Yontz:
Wednesday, March 19: 1-4PM
Rhenea will teach you two cards using stamps on metal for the design. You will then use your MercArt beginning set tools to give shape and dimension to the design, then incorporate the metal into a card. The metal will be aluminum, so that the finished card is light weight.

You might want to note that Metal Madness II will be offered on April 2.

Kiss and Make UP!
Come learn from the Original Stamping Gurus. We’ll see how to color the beautiful people from Stampland.

When you see all the sample boards from this company, you’ll understand my excitement. I just love these images!

Ken has three wonderful, scenic cards to teach you. You’ll be using some of the new images from Stampscapes, like the swamp and the cypress trees. This is your opportunity to take a real three hour class with a recognized master of the Stampscape style.


March 8 & 9 – Albuquerque Rubber Stamp Convention: Creative Arts Building at “Expo-New Mexico”

$5.00 prepaid tickets available at CP2…good for both days. At the door, tickets are $7.00.


A Day of Creative Inspiration (& trunk show): Linda Malcom:
Monday, March 10: 10AM-3:30PM
The stamps from Lost Coast Designs foster creativity. Linda will be teaching us to find and grab our creativity from even very mundane sources! I can hardly wait. Having her samples here, will stretch our minds and, of course, our minds need exercise, too. Here’s what Linda says:

Release your Inner Child with a day of drawing whimsical animals inspired by the lines and shapes around us. We'll use photocopies of cracks and blobs and splats to get you started, as well as some quick exercises. You'll picture animals in an entirely new way.

Bring your favorite coloring tools, a fine black marker (I like Farber Pitt or Micron), a mixed media drawing pad in the size you like to work (NOT a sketch pad). I'll bring some sheets of mixed media paper if you don't have any.

I've used a combination of Panpastels, Copics, and colored pencils  I'll bring all of these so everyone could try some new coloring techniques I've learned lately. If Copics are your favorites, please, make sure you’ve labeled them with your name.
