Tuesday we had a great time hearing from Jaime Echt at The Crafter's Workshop and learning about stencils, modeling paste and Ken Oliver ColorSparx watercolor powders. The continued education of our Sales, Marketing, and Merchandising teams on new products and trends is important to us here at Notions, and so being able to get hands-on with TCW's products was a blast!
Jaime Echt is the designer and founder of The Crafter's Workshop. The company began as a small paper arts shop in 1997, and one day in 1998, they realized the only thing missing from their shop was a great assortment of unique templates and stencils...and thus TCW was born! Today they have a large collection of stencils, mediums, and more!
If you loved Ken Oliver's ColorBurst powders, then you're going to love the new ColorSparx powders! Ken and TCW have teamed up to keep this product going with a newly designed bottle for smaller hands or grip strength that isn't quite what it used to be. They come in six color coordinated sets!

Here's the step-by-step on how to use the ColorSparx watercolor powders! You can use whatever stencils and modeling paste colors you like with this technique!
Step 1: Get a 6x6 Mixed Media Board and a 6x6 stencil (we're using SKU #086539 "Snowflakes") and choose your colors.
