A short note from Laura... Thank you to everyone for your support and patience during these very unusual times. It has been so great seeing and creating with so many of you this holiday season! It is so exciting to offer workshops on a more regular basis again. As I create the workshop projects, I will be adding them to the schedule...so please check back often! And when requested, I will do my best to add additional dates for workshops if possible. You may notice that I list workshop session ending time as "-ish". Those of you who have been in workshops with me know that the "ish" refers to this... I want you to have fun! You can stay on pace to finish on-time (and sometimes faster) or you can slow down a bit, hang out a little longer, and enjoy your creative time and sharing it with others! Be the first to know about our new workshops by following Studio Primrose on Instagram and Facebook. And check back often so that Facebook will keep us in your "feed." As seating is limited, many workshops fill quickly. We are close to having "DIY at Home" kits available. This year they will include color photos and written instructions. Beginning 2022, the kits will be supported by video to make these projects available to more people. Please be safe and healthy! I'm looking forward to seeing you! Blessings to all of you and your families...Laura
Once I saw the preview of the IOD Fall release products, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! Since their arrival last week, my mind has been swirling with all the fun project possibilities! This Fall rustic sign is painted using the stunning "Fruitful Harvest" and "Sunflowers" stamp sets from Iron Orchid Designs. "Hello Fall" is stamped with the IOD "Farmhand" alpha stamp set. It was so much fun painting with all the gorgeous Fall colors!
I am so excited to be offering this workshop! I will be sharing and demonstrating the step-by-step layered painting and stamping techniques used to create this plaque...including my twist on how to use the "masks" included with many of the IOD stamp sets. In addition to this limited edition "Fruitful Harvest" stamp set, several other stamp sets will be available in this workshop for sharing to create your own unique sign... Sunflowers, branches, vines, florals and more!
This workshop is scheduled for 4 hours to give everyone the extra time to really enjoy the planning, layering and painting processes. I will be painting and distressing the boards in advance. (approximate board size 16" tall by 11" wide) You are welcome to bring coffee and snacks to power you through! I will look forward to seeing you!
