Queen's Ink Debut

We had our grande debut at Queen’s Ink on Saturday, September 18 to rave reviews!

Creativity was in the air during our morning class, Nurture Threads lead by Dee. Students worked with fabrics, paints, stamps and our own collage sheets to create beautiful pieces of art, encased in decorated frames. Everyone left the class excited to go home and find a spot for their new artwork.

After lunch, we started our second class of the day, Soul Affirmations. A new crop of students (okay, there were two carry overs from the morning) eagerly began working on their books, directed by Deb on all the new techniques. The students left with the “affirmation book” as a reminder of their creative sides. And hopefully a desire to come to another

ShaDeeLa workshop soon!

Speaking of, be sure to check out our upcoming workshops at Snow HIll!

Waste not....

When Dee and Deb's father, a fine artist, offered ShaDeeLa linen canvas scraps, we snatched them up. While we weren't sure what we would do with them, we were confident we could create something great.

With a swatch in hand, Dee headed to the fabric store for a quick trip and inspiration. The textures, the colors and the imagery got the creative juices flowing.

In her studio, she began experimenting with combinations of fabric, rubber stamps, paper, original artwork, mica powders and golden thread. The final product was the inspiration for Nurture Threads.

A great project for all levels. The next Nurture Threads class is being offered at Queen's Ink on September 18, 2010. Sign up soon as the class is filling up quickly!
