Ranger in Somerset Studio Jul/Aug 2012

June 26th, 2012

If you haven’t checked out the July/August 2012 issue of Somerset Studio just yet, you might want to pick it up.  Inside, you will find an eight-page feature on the Liquid Pearls and Stickles Designer’s Challenge entries displayed in the Ranger booth at the CHA Winter 2012 show!

Each designer was given an identical paper mache dressform, and was asked to use Liquid Pearls and Stickles to decorate it.  Beyond that, the possibilities were limitless!  You’ll definitely want to read this issue of Somerset Studio to see what eight of our designers came up with, to read about their creative processes, and to come away with some inspiration for using Stickles and Liquid Pearls in art projects of your own!

Ranger’s Easter Egg Designer’s Challenge! Day 3

April 5th, 2012

 
This week, we are presenting the results from Ranger's Easter themed Designer's Challenge: we gave craft eggs to some of our favorite designers and crafty employees, and asked them to decorate the eggs for Easter using Ranger products.

Blog-Debbie
Debbie Tlach:

Debbie made this stunning Russian-style egg by applying Claudine Hellmuth Studio Black Gesso to a carvable egg, and she hand painted her flowers with Studio Paints, accenting with Perfect Pearls and Stickles.

Blog-Bonnie

Bonnie Egenton:

Bonnie started out with craft foam and cut out egg shapes.  She ran them through the Vagabond machine in Embossing Folders and gessoed them, before painting with Studio Paints and Liquid Pearls. She then formed the eggs into a wreath by gluing them in a circle with Multi-Medium.

Blog-Patti
Patti Behan:

Patti gessoed a Styrofoam egg and then painted it with an Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber.  The cheerful idea-ology Foliage accents were colorized with Vintaj Patinas.

Only one more day of Designer Eggs to go!  But don't crack under the pressure, there's plenty of time to be inspired before Easter!
