Dina’s Media Journal is full of interesting surfaces: burlap, canvas, kraft paper, and handmade watercolor paper. And Dina has incredible paints, rubber stamps, art crayons and other products that produce different results on different surfaces. Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter – what a great combo! This workshop is perfect for experimenting and exploring with various surfaces and art supplies.

The uber-cool part? Dina’s New Mixed Media Journal is included in the class price. We will stamp, stencil, paint, cut, print, tip in, tear and have a great day of journaling,  playing, and getting our hands dirty. If you’re like me, you are in awe of this Journal but not quite sure where to start, here’s a terrific time to dive in!

Please bring:  Basic tools that include Ranger Craft sheet, scissors, baby wipes, palette (paper plate or palette paper or you can use a corner of your craft sheet), pencil. You may want a small notebook and pen for taking notes, as well.

There will be a break for lunch, included in your registration fee.

All other supplies and materials will be provided in class.



On Saturday we’ll explore many creative ideas for using Dina’s signature Media Board.  You will make many fun projects including a shrine, a box, and mini paintings all from this great product.  You’ll learn how to use different media on this substrate including paint, inks, Media Tape, stamps, paint, and paper.  Your head will be spinning with ideas when you leave!

Please bring:  Ranger craft sheet, scissors, baby wipes, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet). You may also want a small notebook and a pen for taking notes.

We’ll take a break for lunch which is included in your registration fee.

All other supplies and materials will be provided in class.
