We are pushing our creative spirits again, friends, with this super cool Boho Hanging. Join us for a viewing of the movie Bohemian Rhapsody and let the music inspire you to this really freeing Boho hanging.

This super awesome BOHO Project is done on a corrugated piece of cardboard and is full of color, patterns, and lots and lots of texture. (There are two different samples shown above. Your project will be whatever YOU make it as!)  It is organic, freeing and oh such fun! Oh, and the POPCORN is on us!

Alcohol Inks Mandala

ALCOHOL INKS MANDALA PROJECT Wednesday, 8/28/2019 at 6:30PM to 8:30PM.  $35  

So many of our shoppe friends embraced ALCOHOL INKS last summer, and it is about time we brought them back to explore and play with! This time, we are going to pair them with our very own Mandalas. A Mandala is a circular image or pattern whose symbol helps people focus on meditation – initially being a spiritual and ritual symbol in the Indian religions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism representing the universe – but now more widely referenced and adopted. Combining our mandalas with alcohol inks seems to be the most perfect pairing to me, and I know you will truly love the creative process in this class. $35 workshop fee, includes all supplies and instructions. Call 815-905-3068 to register!
