Look what's at the store today . . .

Strathmore provides one of the best paper mediums for watercolor techniques which is quite popular at Art 'n Soul. These wonderful paks are at the store now . . .

There are 10 sheets, 8x10 in size
140 lb. cold press -- "500 Series / Premium" Quality
sized for readymade frames and mats

these are 140 lb. HOT PRESS which means both sides
are much smoother than the cold press;
these sheets are 5x7 in a pak of 25.

These are not art board like the Inchie Arts' squares.
These are 4x4 tiles of 140 lb. cold press heavyweight stock,
and there are 10 in each pak.

There are 10 blank cards (5" x 6-7/8") and matching envelopes made
from the 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. These are perfect
for those very special cards you want to create.

Graphic 45's "Time to Flourish" 12x12 papers for the months of January, February and March. More months will be coming next month. If you want all 12 months, the 8x8 paper pad includes them, as well as the background 6x6 paper pads.

If you must have the larger sheets now, the 12x12 Paper Pad also includes all 12 months. Those can be special ordered . . . just let us know! Each pad has the 24 beautifully decorated sheets from the Time to Flourish collection, and sells for $22.25 at Art 'n Soul.

Remember Lisa Lee's class on Stendoodle™? I haven't seen any of the class photos yet to share with you but here's a couple of stendoodles™ I did that haven't been colored yet. You really should give this technique a try! It has certainly brought my stash of stencils and dies out.

I'm not nearly as proficient at the free-hand zentangle patterns as Dianne is, but combining them with the stencil designs makes it very very fun.

Gotta go  . . .  I've pushed my limit for today's post since it included photography action. I am learning way more about patience than I would ever want to right now.
