Set of 12 Dina Wakely Paints

Painting with Dina Wakely Paints

Michelle G Brown was excited to get her hands on a full set of Ranger’s Dina Wakely paints – all 12 of them, plus her black gesso. Pretty as a rainbow. Michelle created sample swatches to see the colour and how opaque the paints are and created three very different canvases to “test-run” the paints. Come and see what she thinks about the new Dina Wakely Paint Range.

Meaningful Mixed Media Collages

Collage is such a versatile medium with infinite possibilities. Anjuli Johnson is grateful when she looks back on her initial attitudes toward collage- all she could see was bits of paper and fabric pasted together in random ways. She didn’t see the meaning, the purpose beneath the surface. Now, though Anjuli can’t say she fully understands the meaning behind every piece by every artist, she does see the purpose and the value.

Several kinds of textured, embellished yarns

Mixed Media Art Yarn

But yarn is not just pretty; it is a ball or hank of raw artistic potential. A ball of yarn could become anything – a sweater or hat, obviously, but also a piece of jewelry, a fuzzy pom-pom or a prayer flag woven saori-style. It could be wrapped, dipped, molded or sculptured. It can be painted, stitched, knotted, cut, braided … you get the idea. Katja Blum shares one of her favorite art yarn projects.
