Scribble Sticks & Tissue Paper!!

Our next Art Journal Workshop is happening at 6:30pm on July 14th, at the Komoka Community Centre.  This workshop we are featuring Dina Wakley Media's Scribble Sticks.  They are high quality pigment, water soluble crayons, in 12 scrumptious colours.  They blend beautifully with water!! I am very impressed.  Like most of you I am sure, I have a large selection of the Distress Crayons which are very similar to the Scribble Sticks.  I found these blend a bit better, but it is the rich colours of the Scribble Sticks that I love.  They can be used without water as well, for an opaque finish on top of other mediums, like acrylic paint. Here is the page we will be doing.  Lots of layers!!

You will get the chance to play with some recent Darkroom Door and Altenew Stamps and some older Prima, Darkroom Door, Kaisercraft, Hero Arts and Dylusions stamps.  The fabulous girl and boy stamps are from Dylusions, and unfortunately have been discontinued, they have been in my stash for awhile and are just making their debut in my journal finally! 

The background on this page is created with tissue paper.  Some tissue paper reacts with water, transferring colour to your paper (and your fingers!). Its a fun way to get a quick background on your page. The tissue paper I used is artist quality, not the wrapping type which often has a finish on the paper that doesn't allow transfer of the colour. 

We are offering TWO Art Journal Workshops in July - with a different page being done at both.  Check back in later for the one on July 28th! 

Please bring fine tipped scissors, a couple small paint brushes, and a foam blending tool with you to class.  We do require registration in advance, please sign up online or phone Sheila at 519-473-5751.

Hope to see you there!!
