Yep, I'll be in AUSTRALIA! I taught there last year and loved it, can't wait to teach there again with my wonderful Aussie friends.
The journal page below really puts the "mix" in mixed media. It has: PanPastel, Dylusions, Dina Wakley Acrylic, Archival Ink, Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers, black gesso, and the FudeBall pen. Whew! And my stamp from the Scribbly Women set.
I got to attend the Collins show last weekend with Ranger and teach my first Ranger class for retailers. I enjoyed the experience immensely. First, it's just FUN to be with my Ranger peeps. They rock. Second, I love to teach my art, I really do. Third, I love to talk about my new Dina Wakley Media line and show how I use it.
I got to hang out with the always fabulous Dyan Reaveley. I love that woman so much! She's such an awesome friend and we support and cheer on each other. Love being part of the Ranger family with her.
Loved hanging out with Tim & Mario, too. They are such pros and have been so helpful as I've joined Ranger. I've been a Tim fan for years!
I don't know how I managed not to have a pic of Mario and the rest of the Ranger team--Alain, Colleen, Patti, and Steve. DUH! They all rock the casbah.
Be sure to check out Dyan's blog b/c she has more pics than I do!
I do have a pic of the gals from Scrabook Centrale in Montreal with their cool hand-painted bags, designed and taught by the talented Gisele:
And one of us outside the Eileen Hull's awesome Paper Trails camper:
If you have more pics of the show with me, send them my way! I met lots of new people and also got to see many dear friends. And I didn't make anyone cry in class (that I know of), so that's a plus. ha.
There it is!! Publication date is Dec 2014, so there's a bit of time to go. In the publishing world, they always do the covers first so they can get information out to stores who may want to order it. I got my manuscript in (a week early, too, BOOYAH) in mid-March. Now the book will be edited. After editing it goes to the graphic designer where he lays it all out and makes it look awesome. Then it goes to the printer. Then it goes out to stores. So there's some work ahead, still. But it's exciting to see the cover!! Woo hoo!
