Dyan Reaveley at The Collins Group’s Spring Show

March 27th, 2012

This past Saturday, Ranger's very own Dyan Reaveley taught three classes at The Collins Group's Spring 2012 Show.  She taught the lucky participants how to make a Mini Tag Book, an Artful Journal, and a "Down and Dirty Large Tag" using her vibrant Dylusions Ink Sprays, Stencils and Stamps.  Each project featured Dyan's signature style of layers of colors and "ghosted" effects along with whimsical collaging.

Here are some photos from the event!


Inked-up paper towels and inky fingers are definitely going to be seen at any Dyan Reaveley class!

Layers of color and whimsy, thanks to Dylusions Ink Sprays and Stencils.

Dyan and her students….

…have a blast while creating tags!

Wow, that is quite a large tag!

If you want to join the fun and take a class with Dyan, check out her website for a schedule of her classes at her shop, Art from the Heart, as well as classes being held outside of the UK.
