Celeb Online Class: "Masterful" Art Journaling

.
"Masterful" Art Journaling
with Dina Wakley
June 30 to July 21 (8 lessons over 4 weeks)

Are you ready to play in your journals? Are you ready to try something new? Are you ready to explore concepts and ideas that great artists have wrestled with for centuries?

In “Masterful Art Journaling,” you’ll get inspiration from art masters that will help take your art journaling in new directions. From each week’s art history context, we’ll extract art techniques, exercises and journaling prompts to help you play, stretch, and explore as a journaling artist. We’ll be inspired by the artists’ colors, style, and method of expression. We’ll also explore our own response to the questions the artists posed to the world through their art and their lives.

Class Format: 2 lessons per week

Lesson 1: Art history & art exercises. I will select one or two representative paintings, as well, that we will explore and use as inspiration.

Lesson 2: Journaling prompts that encourage introspective exploration inspired by the artist’s world view and art subjects.
.

Week 1:
Vincent VanGogh

Week 2:
Pablo Picasso

Week 3:
Mary Cassatt

Week 4:
Andy Warhol

new + exciting = FABRIC + upcoming SnC KITs!!!

. .
I just died and went to heaven....oh glorious fabrics! I started collecting fabrics and well, you know what happens when I collect, right? Yeah, I can't stop! So I justified to friends and family I'll re-sell the fabrics...or I'll take up a new hobby! Yeah right!



SO beginning JULY 2009, you'll see Scrap-n-Crop's Kit of the Month with a difference! Each kit comes with some fabric elements. If they are not fabric papers, they are fabric squares...and you'll see...we have fabric from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, Michael Miller, Sandi Henderson, Robert Kaufman...to name a few. You know what happens when I can't stop!!! Lol!

Please note fabric photos are courtesy of Amy from http://mommyandbeyond.blogspot.com/. Amy sews beautiful bags and stuff...and oh how I envy her ability to sew!!! Thanks Amy for letting us use your pics!

New Bazzill Embossed Cardstock

.
.
hmmmmmmmmmm...
.
Just when you though we were crazy with our 14 feet high stash of Bazzill papers last year ... with every imaginable colour and texture, well, you are sooooooooo wrong! lol
.
We are way, way, way crazier than you think.
And as crazy as we are, Bazzill is even crazier to come up with even even more textures!!!
.
So, naturally Scrap-n-Crop.com has to bring in (no question about not bringing in!) the NEW Bazzill Embossed Cardstocks ... here's some sampling (yes, samples only) for you to imagine further.
.

.

FP_SummerSoiree

School Holidays, Summer Holidays ...

boy, oh boy, do I miss those good ol' days of being a kid!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Well, I sure am not going to live with any regrets and as hot as it may be, will be running after Becks to take all the summer-worthy-photos! errr... yup, you guessed right! It's more for the mommy and ee ee to scrap than for the child to remember by (at this point at least). lol

So, we'll definitely be keeping some of the Fancy Pants' Summer Soiree for ourselves, for sure, but relax... there's still quite a bit for everyone else to share.

Check them out NOW on Scrap-n-Crop.com's online store by clicking HERE.

a BLAST of great NEWS {yes, plural!}

...
Remember these photos I took from SIA recently? Well of course! most of you do judging from the emails I am receiving demanding for:
.
COLLECTIONS! COLLECTIONS! COLLECTIONS!


.
Well, ladies, I have got even BETTER news for all of you.
.We are in the midst of planning for yet another ART RETREAT and we are in talks with Julie van Oosten herself!

.

.

ooohhhh... ahhhhhhhhh... yes! I can't wait to get my hands dirty, make fantastic items and learn great techniques from her. But before all the fun can start, there's really a lot (and I mean a whole LOT) of work to be done. :(

.

So, all are welcome to help me out as we go along, but first, let's decide:

when we would like to have the fun?

October 2009? November 2009? December 2009? or January 2010?

Let me know in the polls below :


{note: the poll on the top-right-hand side of the blog has been removed and at the time of editing we had: 6 x Oct '09, 5 x Nov '09, 3 x Dec '09, 2 x Jan '10, 1 x Feb '10}

.


and check out Julie's blog HERE for more inspiration.

Hugs,

Val

Honouring DADs This Month

.
Oh no! How time flies!!! And it's already that time of the year to honour the men in our lives.
.
FATHERS.
and our children's FATHERS.
.
I'm not sure about you, but it's also usually the one occassion I am stumped. I never knew what to get my dad. What would make it happy. And after 36 years, I still don't know!!! :(
.
To make matters worse, I now have to figure out what's best for the two great men in my life; my father and my husband - my children's father.
.
Well, I've googled and search the internet for ideas ... and I thought I would share some of them with you (who may or may not be in the similar predicament as I am). I thought I should comb departmental stores to see what's available, perhaps drop some hints here and there to know what he would like ... :(
.
or perhaps (bad idea though) go through his stack of paper work in a hopeless search for possibly any brochures or 'hints' he may have left... you think?
.
Well, Penny said "GRrrr....EAT idea. Wait till you see a swanky sports car brochure." Oh well, but that's Penny!
.
Ladies, if you have any ideas, drop me a note. I would be so grateful. In the meantime, I've put together a Father's Day kit for June 2009 Kit of the Month. And at the back of my mind a little voice says "Make them something!" :)
.
hugs ladies,
Val
.

Some ideas ...
