In a New Medium: Chalk!

It looks like yours truly will be making her very first skel-appearance at Sacramento's long-running sidewalk chalk art festival, Chalk-It-Up! To Sacramento on Labor Day weekend 2009.  The Chalk-It-Up! To Sacramento festival started 19 years ago, and was one of the very first "Sacramento things" Krissi and Ron did when they moved here in 2000.  Now here we are almost 10 years later and she'll be one of the artists.  Let's not lose focus here, though, since *I* will be the one immortalized in sidewalk chalk. Oh, wait a minute, maybe that's not so immortal after all.....

In any event, Krissi will be representing Body Tribe Fitness and wanted me to ask you what you think I should be doing to best represent this unusual midtown gym and its physical subculture.  All ideas are welcome!

Krissi's Mixed-Media Class This Friday

That's right hep cats and kittens!  We're heading southward to teach "Hearts of Fire," a class detailing two of Krissi's favorite mixed-media techniques - color layering and using image transfers - at the Santa Clarita Craft Lab this Friday night, June 19th from 7pm to 10pm.

"Hearts of Fire - Mixed Media Imagery" Class

All supplies are included in the totally affordable $40 class fee, which means you get to use Krissi's own personal (i.e., well loved) stash of paints, pencils, mediums and images.  Of course, all students are encouraged to bring their favorite inkjet/photocopied images, rubber stamps and ephemera.

Two more spots were opened up this week since it was such a popular class!  There are currently three seats available, and I have NO idea when we'll be able to travel down to offer this again. Oh, and did I mention that we're "raffling off" a tote-bag-o-crafting-goodness?  IT'S TRUE!  Krissi has been collecting all kinds of goodies on her travels and decided that it's time to spread the craft wealth.
Just check out all these fun things we've been hoarding!  Now they can be yours (IF you're in the class, that is)!

So if you want to hang out with the cool kids for an evening (there's me, of course - but in addition to the super creative Santa Clarita Craft Lab staff, we have Cesco and Annette Armas joining us!), maybe win some craft supplies, and definitely learn some great art techniques in the process, give Cyndi at Santa Clarita Craft Lab a call at 661-255-7526 and sign up before we fill up!

I'll see you all next week with lots of photos and an update after my whirlwind tour of Southern CA.

Happy skele-creating!

Howdy gang! I got home from a kitty-prowl the other day to find a package in the mailbox from Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps in Santa Fe (they make and carry the line of Skelekitty rubber stamps).

Oooh... Some Santa Fe magaines...
Hmm! Santa Fe local hot-spots publications. I wonder what's inside?

Woo Hoo!

And Lee also sent me this cute hang-tag bookmark she made using some cool techniques AND two of the Skelekitty stamps!
