Wendy Vecchi Mixed Media Adventure

Studio 490 Stencils
The beginning of August I went to Ink About It in Westford Ma. ( to take a class with Wendy Vecchi. I have to admit I really wasn't sure who she was or what she did when I signed up for the class, but a friend of mine wanted to go so I said I would go too.

Studio 490 Stamps
To my surprise Wendy Vecchi in addition to designing art stamps and Art Parts, is Ranger's Senior Educator. She says it's the perfect job for her since she loves their products (I know that feeling!). Wendy travels around the country and teaches stamping and altered art classes. Her signature line of rubber stamps is called Studio 490 and she also designs a line of heavy chipboard parts called Art Parts, which are quite simply... PARTS to MAKE ART! Another product of Wendy's is these cute decorative pieces call Blossom Buckets. (

...........Art Parts .................................. Embossing Paste .................................. Archival Inks

Using all of these products plus more from her line we created a Journal

Back and Front cover (all made from Studio 490 Art Parts)

The only other products used to put this together was Tim Holt's scissors and wet glue.

I have to say this 8hr class went so fast, and that Wendy is a fabulous instructor, if you get a chance to take a class with her do it, it is so worth it. I know that I am looking forward to spending the day with her again at some point in the future.
