Let’s be honest – Tim Holtz and Dina Wakley stole the Ranger show for me. Between his announcement of 12 new distress colors (orchid-y purple… oh please…) to her paint tip tool… well I’m in love. I already posted about both of them (separately/previously) But WAIT! there’s more! Yes from new archival colors to more paste options Ranger has a lot. Here are my favorites.
Ranger Texture paste is excellent. Super light, very good to work with, dries fast. Now ranger introduces “transparent paste” in matte and gloss. Is this not just gel medium?! I don’t know… but I’ve pre-ordered my jars and will report back! ANY way I can get more pastes is always good in my book!
Which brings me to their texture tools. Perfect size and storage. great designs. Fantastic with paste. WONDERFUL for mixed media work. All around WIN here. Can’t wait! (yes, I’ll be sharing when I manage to get these!)
Not a must for me – because honestly I am currently overwhelmed with all the paint and ink options out there- but notable that Ranger has dye, pigment ink, and also new dabbers of paint.
Speaking of paint – there is now Dylusions paint. It’s more like a glaze/thin paint… it is interesting. I have a jar. Yes full review coming soon(ish)!
I just loved this journal cover…
Also that Dyan is doing her thing – and tapping into a trend I notice up and coming. That’s right. Skulls.
Will we see loads of them in sugar skull and other forms by Halloween? We shall see…
