I am thrilled that Ranger has come out with a line of beautifully bright dyes for UK artist Dyan Reaveley.
Dyan is quite well known for her amazing journaling style and the techniques that go with it. She has the keenest eye for finding the weird, the amazing and the funky !
and, with that in mind, she did a 2 hour Ranger U workshop this morning using her DYLUSION dyes that also happen to go with her line of rubber stamps and stencils.
Students got busy...
with a small assist from Tim...
Dyan explains her Bleach Out technique using NO bleach
and her resist techniques...that no one could resist !
and she approves of everyone getting nice and inky !
she spritzes and sprays
but my favorite is when she shows what to do with a roll of kitchen towels
and how she begins the background for a journal page
how she uses her stencils
and how she works with various white pens
her journals are completely amazing..here are a few highlights...
In the evening I had some of my favorite gal pals over for dinner and drinks....
The adorable Aurea Estelle from Barcelona... who had never tasted corn on the cob before !!!
from L-R, Ronda Palazzari (author, designer & instructor), Lisa Pace (author, designer & instructor) and, Carolyn Ross (owner of Crafty Scraper in Waxahachie, TX.)
hope you all have a copy of Lisas' book..I do !
time to call it a night....what a bizzzzzzie day it was !
