Claudine Hellmuth: Your Inner Artist Canvas

Your Inner Artist Canvas
I really like the canvas I made in the class I took with Claudine Hellmuth at Scrapfest! I've worked with stretched canvas attached to wood before and I've also used Claudine's Sticky Back Canvas. It really makes a big difference however when you actually take a class and use it. After seeing Claudine demo her Sticky Back Canvas I really came home with alot of ideas that are floating around in my head. So many projects, will I ever have time to get them all done?!

The canvas that I've worked with is three-quarters inch wide. This is a chunky canvas and is two and a quarter inch wide. I really like it! I bought some canvas for a project, so keep watching for a post about it.

Of course I had Claudine sign my canvas!

Claudine has some new mini paints out that I fell in love with! Her products were flying off the shelf at Archiver's at the Mall of America so I was unable to buy them. Now I'll have to wait until my next trip to the Twin Cities or I'll just have to order them online. Where I live we don't always have access to the latest and greatest products :(

This is what I did buy of her products:
The Creative Mediums will be helpful with projects. I bought the "Bloom" foam and clear stamp collection. What appeals to me is the layering effect you get when using these stamps.

I also bought the Rock-a-Blocks. You can use them with clear acrylic, foam or unmounted rubber stamps. I've heard they work well for people with arthritis. Because Rheumatoid Arthritis had damaged my left wrist and my right one isn't much better, I have problems stamping sometimes. Hopefully these blocks will make it easier for me.

This is what I got for free just for taking her class:
You really come home with alot of free product in addition to what you buy. ....and I am by no means complaining about that! This is what I received just for taking the Tim Holtz Artful Journal class:

I've been loading some of the video that I took at Scrapfest to my YouTube channel. I still have more to load so keep checking back.

Thanks for stopping by!
