My memory was incorrect when it came to John Petersen's next class on Saturday afternoon, October 20. It's only $30 and I corrected the fee on yesterday's blog posting. It's going to be a great afternoon of playing with all sorts of Imagine Crafts & Tsukineko media while learning new techniques from John.

New releases from Cheery Lynn Designs came out today . . . the catalog has been printed out for you to see at Art 'n Soul. In the meantime, you can 'study up' and see what you'd like to order on a pink sheet! There is a gap when you scroll down, so please keep scrolling!

I am amazed at this home decor project from Laura Denison, who is a member of Graphic 45's design team. She's from the Maple Valley area and we're hoping someday she'll teach at Art 'n Soul.

"And now it's time for some gorgeous Halloween inspiration! Even though Halloween is still a few weeks away it's the perfect time to start thinking about home decor! Decorating for Halloween is a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy! Why not have some cheerful handmade pieces of home decor that will add a personalized touch to your Halloween festivities? Handmade home decor is also a great way to preserve your memories for years to come! So lets begin with this absolutely remarkable wall hanging by Laura Denison. This stunning piece is a true work of art. It's not just great for Halloween, it's also perfect for Autumn and Winter decorating. Another fun feature to this piece is that Laura blended lots of different Graphic 45 collections together. You can see how beautifully Graphic 45 papers blend to create a truly unique and beautiful craft. Here is what Laura had to say about this splendid creation.
"Before I entered the world of paper, I designed  a lot of pictorial applique quilts. For quite some time I have wanted to translate this style of my past work into paper.....sort of like painting with paper. I started out with a general idea of what I wanted this owl to look like and then freeform cut the pieces, building layer by layer. I love the dimensional quality of the paper pieces vs. the flatness of the fabric in my past quilting work. The vintage flavor of the Graphic 45 papers worked well to give this owl its air of mystery." -Laura Denison"
