Never ever in my wildest dreams that I would be posting this, but here goes:
Terry Medaris is coming to Ohio! He will be teaching two of his Prismacolor pencil classes at Marco's Paper in Centerville (near Dayton) on Saturday, August 25. If you are anywhere near Dayton, YOU NEED TO CALL MARCO'S RIGHT AWAY AND RESERVE A SEAT! Terry Medaris is an amazing artist/instructor. I flew all the way to San Diego to take these classes, and trust me when I say this...it was worth it! What I learned influences my coloring every day...even when I use different mediums. I am so excited that some Buckeye colorists are going to get treated to such wonderful instruction on shading, blending and color selection. Woot!
I thought I'd better get my Prismacolor pencils ready...you know, make sure they are sharpened and that I haven't lost any or anything. I want to be prepared Saturday. To practice, I stamped the Terry Medaris image of "Flowered Prickly Pear" onto Bristol Smooth paper with Stazon Jet Black Ink. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and sprayed with a Workable Fixative. Then I framed the image panel with black cardstock. The large card panel is patterned paper from Lasting Impressions. It too is framed with black cardstock. I added a sheer brown ribbon and bow to the card for the finishing touches. I don't like to embellish much when it comes to making cards with Terry's images. My eye says none are really needed. Why detract from these amazing images?
I hope if you are in anywhere in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana you will make the trip for a wonderful day of coloring with one of the best...Terry Medaris!
