Mark Your Calendar for Marker Mania

Everything is heating up this July on Gingersnap Creations! Our Summer Supply Spectacular is once again underway! Remember last year's Collage Resources and Passion for Paper? We had a lot of fun focusing on paper products and ephemera.

Our Summer Supply Spectacular 2010 will concentrate on how we add color through media.
In July, we will be focusing on markers of all kind with our Marker Mania!


There are so many different kinds of markers available now including alcohol ink, pigment, permanent, paint and water-based variations. We are challenging you to make your mark this Summer!

We are also happy to welcome Penny Bennington as our July Muse. Penny works with a number of different types of media to create incredible works using rubber stamps and collage techniques. Her mini-books and vintage creations will definitely inspire you. Stay tuned for an interview with this fabulous artist later this month. To see some of her wonderful art right now, check out Penny's blog - A Penny for Your Thoughts.
