and look forward to the next class

Project for the Night:  Dyan Revelry's Dylusion Sprays,
                                  Stamps and Stencils

For those of you that do not know who Dyan Reaveley is she is a designer for Ranger and has her own line of products called Dylusions.....

She's a Mixed Media Artist with a unique eclectic style that comes through in her vibrant color combinations of inks and paints, using text as an insightful design element and the clever use of imagery in her artwork. Dyan teaches and demos with Ranger and is known for her creativity with layering color, images and thought-provoking collages.  (taken from Rangers write up on Dyan).   

Supplies:   Dylusions  Art Journal
            If you already have a journal you want to use that's ok, but it should
            be able to take a lot of water, paint and different type of medium.
            I have worked with this one and it takes all kinds of abuse.
            note:  we will be using this (a) journal for many of the projects in the future also for our
                      Art Nights.

                  double sided adhesive
                  3 in one glue,
                  water spay bottle
                  Archival Ink (Black)  Tim Holtz  BLACK SOOT  Stein and Paint
                 assorted stamp blocks  (I have some you can use)
                  1 roll of paper towels 
                  heat gun
                  craft mat to work on
                  baby wipes
  Note Please do not go out and buy any of these items special for this project, I will have mine available to share with you.
