Ranger U-Day Two!

The day started with Claudine Hellmuth. She is so sweet and funny and looks like a supermodel. She definitely has a great understanding of paint and all the mediums that go with it and does a great job sharing that knowledge. I really had some light bulb moments in this part of the class and have such a better understanding of why mediums work the way they do. Below are some tags we created with her line of Studio paints and mediums. The pictures really don't do the techniques justice. I really love her line of stamps as well. Foam and clear that are designed to work together and compliment each other. Lots of fun.
After we finished off Claudine's portion of Ranger U...we headed to the lunch room for some famous square pizza. Mario is always there to make sure we have everything we need. He was sweet enough to pose with the pizza.

After lunch we headed back to the classroom and it was time to DISTRESS! Oh...I was in Distress heaven. A pad in every color, all the distress stickles, embossing powders, reinkers, crackle paints and stains. All for us to play with and learn new techniques! Total heaven, that's the only way to describe it! Here are a few of the tags we created. I swear Tim is a genius. He does things with this ink that is just totally amazing. Techniques, techniques techniques!!! Having my hands covered in Distress ink was a perfect way to end the day!

I cannot believe that this weekend is almost over, tomorrow is the last day of Ranger U. We are going to be covering the Adirondack line. I am sure I will learn a ton tomorrow and I can't wait.

I am hoping to get some pics of the girls tomorrow. I have made some really good friends and I am going to miss them so much. My roomie is the best...I know we will stay in touch. Will share more tomorrow but right now I need some sleep.
