When I first heard that my friend Dina was Ranger’s newest signature designer I got really excited. Not just because she is my friend and I adore her tremendously, but also because she is so very talented and I could not wait to see what products she would come out with.
The Dina Wakley Media line consists of stamps, stencils, paints, brushes, and a palette knife.
My #1 favorite thing is the bird stamps.
I’m slightly obsessed and going to apologize in advance because you are going to see them a LOT this spring once I can get my hands on a set!
Also loving her stencil designs, and seeing how beautifully they work on art journals, tags, and more.
She had a lot of great samples in the booth showing her stamps + stencils + paints in action together.
Here you can see the colors (though due to show floor lighting expect that my colors are off a bit!)
and the whole line…
Her paints are thick (or is it heavy?) acrylic paints and I am interested to see how those work out for my paper crafting.
A new emerging trend in paper crafting – one I’m totally into – is artists like Dina who are so very talented creating stamps based off their hand-drawn art. Not just that – but doing them in such a way that I (or anyone!) can simply stamp with black ink, then exercise our own creativity with coloring the image in however we see fit. As someone who simply is simply terrible at drawing I LOVE this.
The Dina Wakley line is expected to ship in March (I believe the stamps/stencils might ship a bit earlier) to stores. When these paints are available I will be doing a video + review here on my blog.
Also – stay tuned because in a few days I’ll be posting some videos of Dina, Tim, and Dyan demoing product in the Ranger booth – and more on the Ranger booth as well!
