Learn Artistic Techniques with Heather!

Hello, Memory Bound friends! 
I saw this quote recently and was reminded how hard it can be to try something new. We often stick to what we know because it's safe and certain -- and miss out on a lot of fun! Have you ever wanted to try a new product or technique but told yourself, "I could never do that!"? I certainly have!

If you'd like to start "coloring outside the lines" more often, we've got some great opportunities next week for you to do just that. Plan to join local artist Heather Kindt for her classes and Meet the Artist trunk show! 

All you need is curiosity -- not artistic skills! -- to learn the trendy new techniques that are taking over the craft world. In her next Curious Crafter class, Make Sense of Sprays, Heather will teach you the difference between all the wonderful sprays on the market -- the ones you may have been afraid to try! Give us a call to register.

Make Sense of Sprays
Tuesday, November 13, 6-7:30pm
Instructor: Heather Kindt  / Fee: $12
Skill Level:  Any
Bring Basic Class Kit, previously gessoed pages from Gesso-U-Know class (or request pages to be provided), and any sprays including Colorwash, Dylusions, Perfect Pearls, Tattered Angels, Mr. Huey, Maya Road or others. There are so many spray inks! Learn all about how they are different from each other and make beautiful pages for your artsy reference book.

 Meet the Artist - November 17
Heather is this month's featured artist in our "Meet the Artist" events scheduled for Saturday, November 17. Heather is excited to bring mixed media art to Memory Bound. She recently published an article in Somerset’s Art Journaling magazine.

Trunk Show 9-10am -- Stop by to see Heather's projects and chat with her informally about any questions you may have.

Christmas Shadowbox Treasure Class - 10:30am-1:30pm 
Don't miss this wonderful class in which you'll use a host of fun techniques to make a beautiful home decor piece for the holidays. Give us a call to register!

Christmas Shadowbox Treasure 
Saturday, November 17, 10:30am-1:30pm
Instructor: Heather Kindt
Fee: $39 / Skill Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Bring Basic Class Kit, Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad + blending tool, Mod Podge (matte), medium size paintbrush, hole punch, and distressing tools.
This fun mixed media project is an album, a shadow box, and home décor in one. We’ll use 2 canvases and the charming colors of “All is Bright” paper line by My Mind’s Eye. This project will easily become one of your Christmas treasures that you decorate with year after year.

 We hope you'll take full advantage of the opportunities at Memory Bound to "color outside the lines"! Life is more fun with messy fingers! :)
