AJC News!

HUGE NEWS! I’m Opening a Studio in Mesa for Workshops!

Yes it’s really true! I think this is the biggest news I have EVER shared! Dave and I are opening “Artspiration Studio” this summer in Mesa, Arizona. Today we launched our official Kickstarter campaign and we are off to a great start! The reason that I LOVE Kickstarter is that dreams really do come true there! You get awesome stuff for pledging and we get to open the studio to record classes and hold live workshops. It’s win-win for everyone. Synergy is amazing and I really believe that this project is worth it. If we can exceed our goal, you’ll get even more fantabulous goodies (stretch goals announced soon) and the Studio will get all kinds of upgrades! Let’s spread the word far and wide! I am so excited to get started recording workshops, live-streaming and painting!!!!!! http://kck.st/12lx6Om

Tangie Artspiration Studio Kickstarter

A couple of things to note about how Kickstarter works if you’ve never heard of this amazing place!
1. It’s all or nothing funding! We have to raise the full amount or you don’t get charged and we don’t get the moolah!
2. Your card is NOT charged until the ending time which is May 3rd, 11:59 PM MST or 2:59 AM EDT
3. To get our Kickstarter noticed in the popular or staff pick section I HAVE to get the word out there, can you please help me–share, share, share? :)
4. You can use any images, wording etc I post about this project on your own blog. But please link everything up to http://kck.st/12lx6Om

Oh and one last thing! The backer’s only blog is going to be seriously cool and will open right on May 4th! It’s going to have all kinds of exclusive pictures I won’t be posting anywhere else, freebies, surveys for your input and more! You’ll get to be a part of the Studio progress every single step of the way! I hope you’ll be there with us.

Together we can make this dream come true— THANK YOU SO MUCH!

PS! There are more images you can use on our Kickstarter media Page {here}  which will be updated often!

The Navigation Guide is alone a book of wonder and inspiration:


Here is a look at the bright starter kit that comes right now with your passage to the Art Journal Caravan {Expedition 2011}:


These papers are beyond amazing, you can see the brush strokes on the painted ones, I am in love with the color theme:

As soon as I saw these stripes, my brain and heart went together and Mr. Mojo began twitching to make something! I can not wait to get started!!

Then the alpha, all ready to match the scheme and theme of the starter kit!

I have to admit, I love all of Tangie’s Splatter Graffiti!  I like how it is like the final touch to a page to grunge it up a bit, or bring a bit of light to an area on the page.  This one is no exception:

Many people enjoy the hybrid aspect of art journaling and having printable Collage Sheets is a huge help, here they are:

I just had to cut and copy Tangie’s own words to let you know the new fun things for Art Journal Caravan {Expedition 2011}, her enthusiasm is so contagious!! I love that she loves this just as much as we do!!!

There are many exciting changes planned for 2011! I can’t tell you about all of them now but here are just a few hints!

  • Each month there will be a guest designer for the 2 Parcels (such as Holliewood Studios, Studio Rebecca, SherrieJD & MORE!), plus there will be an exciting new addition to the Parcels which I can’t reveal just yet! (In other words there will be 26 Parcels & 26 _____ all available to you at 1/2 price)
  • The Itinerary will be released every 2 weeks with a NEW feature coming in the off weeks! So you will get 26 Itinerary and 26________!
  • NEW! Exclusive email list for our Class of 2011, you will get more email reminders about when Itinerary are posted, freebies and special announcements! I’ll be better able to communicate with you about what is happening on our Journey!
  • I have committed to doing more tutorials for you this year! You can expect at least 1 “Tangie” video per month & other tutorials as requested! We’ll have a “tutorial reQuest” section!
