We thought you might like to have a look so here’s some pics to help you see what we’ve been up to. 
Remember we will be popping up to Toowoomba Carnival of Crafts on Sunday 28th April 10am – 2pm with a pop up shop at the Showgrounds to say thanks to all our hill folk friends who have visited us and to hopefully meet lots more.

Adding Art Stones to Mixed Media Projects

Have you wondered what to do with art stones or how they get those little balls onto their projects?

Art stones are a light weight product that is created in various sizes ranging from very small and fine to medium and large.  They can be mixed in with heavy gesso or texture paste for a gritty effect and bumpy texture allowing you leave it white or to colour over the top with your chosen colours.

Check out how Alicia Vega has added the art stones after colouring her project here for a fabulous washed effect of the water.

Alternatively, you can pour art stones onto your project and allow them to dry into the medium either painting over them or leaving them white against a coloured background.

Check them out in store now.

Dylusions, Mixed Media, paints

GREAT FUN WITH DYLUSIONS PAINTS

We have a great range of  DYLUSIONS PAINTS
in store and thought you might like to know more about them.

These paints were especially developed for Dyan Reaveley since no other paints worked quite the way she wanted them to.  Many other paints will definitely work in your mixed media journals but these ones have a few advantages – especially if you like to work quickly.  
* firstly, they come in a jar with a wide opening so you can get your palette knife in to scoop out exactly what you need / want.
 * the large opening means that you have a lid that is big enough to use as the paint directly out of it.  Ie. you can use the small amount of paint that sits on the lid to dip your brush, blending tool sponge or even small objects for printing off.    
* the paint comes in a fabulous range of colours which can all be blended to make shades or pastels but better still, they all have matching sprays and pen colours so you can create with a fully complementary set of mediums. 
* the paint is a perfect consistency for using through your stencils and have a great opacity that can be altered with water.
* now for the main reason they have been so well received by mixed media artists…….they dry super quickly so you can work on multiple pages in jour journal / diary at once and know that when you flip to a new page, the last one will be dry in no time.

If you would like to listen to Dyan talk about the motivation behind this range, click here.

Here is a link to Carolyn Dube who has done a video testing out the paints.

If you’ve made something with the Dylusions paints be sure to bring them in store to show us sometime.  We would love to see them!
See you soon!

Amanda Hartmann, Colour Blast, Colour Blast Fun Day, Double page layout class, Mixed Media

MEET AMANDA HARTMANN FROM COLOUR BLAST

Amanda Hartmann brings a whimsical and colourful approach to
scrapbooking and mixed media
and will be joining us at A Place to Create on
Saturday December 2nd for a Colour Blast Fun Day. 
 Read on to learn more about Amanda and to see some of her fun loving layouts.

I have been scrapbooking for many years, as evidenced by my well-organised large stash and shelves full of albums and piles of layouts! My life is always about the balance and juggle – as I divide time between my gorgeous family (husband and 3 girls), my rewarding work (full time as a Speech Pathologist) and my “me” time (Scrapbooking and Jujitsu). I have worked on a variety of Design Teams, including Colour Blast Australia, as well as Teams for challenge blogs over the years. I have been published in Scrapbooking Memories. I love to use patterned papers, and combining mixed media to create interesting backgrounds.  Embellishment clusters are part of my signature style!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Amanda will be teaching a double page layout where you will create a colourful and fresh background page and spread it across two pages to create a co-ordinating background across your double layout. 
In this class, you will play with:
Colour pastes,
Colour sprays,
Shimmer cubes,
Gesso,
Stencils and more.
Choose your colour (pink or blue or shades in between) then create your own embellishment clusters to finish off your layout.
 
Saturday 2nd December
9 am – 11.30am
Cost $35.00 – includes all materials and mixed media elements
BYO basic tool kit and apron
Phone the store on 3851 2200 to book your place.

 

 
 
You can follow Amanda on the following links.
 
Look forward to seeing you there.
