No Introductions needed...

     These next few weeks we will be spotlighting our 2012 instructors. While they are no strangers to the Eclectica family, We thought it would be a great way to get to know them a little better. This week we will start with our newest instructor:

                                                             Tara Smith

     While Tara's projects and smile are no stranger to us at Eclectica, We
are proud to introduce her as Eclectica's newest instructor. Tara has been working with paper arts for 15 plus years. She is a busy mother of 4 and loves that scrapbooking preserves the memories and the love of family.

    Tara has a Masters in Mental Health Therapy and has specialized in using art to work with children in the field. When asked about this focus, Tara responded, "I find that paper arts and scrapbooking can be so beneficial, healing and therapuetic for the mind and soul".

    Tara's style is very textured and hands on and she believes in accepting
 even the "mistakes" as special and unique attributes of yourself, the artist.

Tara's Next Class:                     

 Fabulous Flower Chalkboard- $20

 Tara will be using her fabulous flower skills to alter a 7x10 wooden chalkboard. Whether it’s for jotting notes or as a hanging piece of art, this chalkboard will be a beautiful addition to any home. Perfect as a Mother’s day gift or simply as a gift for yourself! Need a certain color to match your decor? You will be able to customize with your choice of paper! Even if you've never "altered" or "flowered" before, this is the perfect class to get you going and will thrill paper crafters of all levels. Tara will teach 3 easy to create flower styles that will cascade and enhance your chalkboard. In addition to your basic tool kit, please bring a foam brush or paint dabber, scrappy glue, micro tip scissors and brown chalk ink.
