Creativation 2017 | Dina Wakley Media Recap

February 1st, 2017

It’s day three of our Ranger recaps and today we’re going to be sharing with you all the fun and excitement of the new products in the Dina Wakley Media line!

On the Friday night of our education day, we ended the day with Dina Wakley’s Mixed Media Mischief, where students were able to watch and learn how Dina applies her free spirit approach to color and composition when creating her mixed-media pieces. Her workshop students used her new products, including the Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks and the Dina Wakley Media Journal, to create personalized altered journal spreads.

The Ranger booth made sure to show many finished examples using both the Scribble Sticks and Media Journal. The booth included all the newest additions to the Dina Wakley Media line, including new stamps and stencils, Media Brushes and Media Tools, as well as your favorite Dina Wakley Media Acrylic Paints which are now available in 1 oz. bottles!

Dina’s Media Journal, Scribble Sticks, and 1 oz. Acrylic Paint bottles made their appearance in the Creativation Innovations showcase display as well!

The first day of the show, visitors of the Ranger booth were invited to play with the new Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks and color in Dina Wakley Media Board pins stamped with an image from her new Homage to Frida stamp set.

Applying the directly to surface or pulling pigment from the sticks themselves, there are so many ways to use Dina’s Scribble Sticks! Dina made sure to spend her time at her demo table teaching these uses and techniques, as well as explaining all the new products the Dina Wakley Media line has to offer.

Don’t forget about the Evolution of Distress Designer Challenge, Dina’s colorful artist abilities shined through using Distress Paints.

On the last day of the show, people made way to Dina’s demo table to fill out their color charts to bring home swatch samples of the Scribble Sticks.

Autumn Leaves Mini Book by Dina Wakley

In the Arizona desert, the only way I get to see colorful Fall leaves is if I make them. Did you know you can use Dina Wakley Media acrylic colors to get beautiful earthy, Fall hues? Here’s what I did:
Autumn Leaves Mini Book by Dina Wakley
Step 1: Use a Mini Ink Blending Tool, White paint, and the Almost Ikat stencil to apply a white stenciling onto a sheet of 8x5x11 Watercolor Cardstock. When the white stenciling is dry, brush on a combination of these colors: Fuchsia and Cheddar (together they make a pretty rust color), Ruby, and a dash of Evergreen. Let the piece dry.

Step 2: Stamp leaves from the Scribbly Leaves and Pods set with Jet Black Archival onto the colorful background. Cut out your amazing Fall leaves. Grab a size 8 Kraft tag and use Gilt paint, a Mini Blending Tool, and the Almost Ikat stencil to apply gold stenciling all over the tag. Fold the tag so it makes a little tag book. I don’t ever measure this, I just guess.

Step 3: Staple some paper into the fold so you have a little book. I used graph paper.

Step 4: Decorate the book with your leaves. I also used a piece of a tag that I had painted with Turquoise dots from the Spaced Dots stencil and some Dina Wakley Media printed tape to add interest behind the leaves.

Step 5: Paint a piece of crinkle ribbon with Turquoise paint. When it’s dry, you can use it to close your booklet.

Happy October! I am excited about the limited edition holiday stamp and stencils sets. I used mine to create this cute little treat holder. Here’s how I did it!

Happy October! I am excited about the limited edition holiday stamp and stencils sets. I used mine to create this cute little treat holder. Here’s how I did it!

I took one sheet of Dina Wakley Media Board and cut it in half, so I had a piece that is 4.5″x12″. I scored the media board (on the canvas side) with a paper cutter at 3″, 6″, and 9″. When I say “score,” I mean I used a paper trimmer to cut the board half-way through its total thickness. That sounds complicated but really, it’s easy because a typical paper trimmer can’t cut all the way through the board with one cut. Just cut once, and you’ll have the perfect score mark.

Now you can fold the board on the score marks to create a little box. I painted the box with White, Lime, Night, and Blackberry paints, and added writing with Sterling and the Fine Line Tip applicator. I folded the box and sealed it up with Dina Wakley Media printed tape. I had an old painted tag that didn’t look too great, so I cut it into small circles and used them as a collage element on the box. I stamped images from the stamp set onto Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Jet Black Archival, then I painted them in with diluted paint colors (Black, Umber, Magenta).  I used the stencil to create the word strips “caution: bat crossing.” I cut everything out and used both Multi Medium and Ranger Foam Tape to adhere the collage to the box. I filled it with a yummy Halloween treat.
