STENCILLOGY SUMMERPROMO

In our crafting experience, we have found that stencils are among the most versatile crafting tools. They can be used with all sorts of art mediums, including paints, inks, and texture paste. They are easy to clean, store, and organize. With proper care they can last a very long time.

No matter the kind of stencil you have, the design possibilities are endless. You can use stenciled designs on their own, or layered over one another to create amazing effects.

Our store carries quite a few stencil designs, most popular of which are the Arabic Collection. Aside from being made of high-quality material, our collection includes well-known motifs as well as a few of our own original designs in 12×12 inches size

Have a look at our Bestseller Gallery

Our Arabic stencils are available via our

A FAREWELL SCRAPBOOK ALBUM

Many of us are simply transients in the UAE. We are here for a few years or more than that and we build bridges, make friends, and live fully in this country. However, as they say, all good things must come to an end. People move on.

Our shop has been very privileged to know a group of ladies who are each talented crafters. This is not surprising since majority of them are teachers. They have been regular crafters in our shop, coming together every month or so to just be creative together.

Leanne is one among their group who has been in Dubai for more than 15 years. She has had a successful career as a teacher and has recently retired. As things go, she and her husband will be returning to their home country.

We were commissioned by one of Leanne’s close friends, Louise, to create for her a farewell scrapbook. Many of her closest friends and colleagues contributed photos and messages enough for 20 layouts in an 8×8 inch album. The sentiments and pictures tell personal stories of a woman loved and appreciated by many. We will miss this wonderful lady. But there will always be the memories.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s Leanne working on some of the projects she has done with us. We will miss her humor, wisdom, and company. We wish her all the best as she enjoys her retirement back home. We sincerely hope that she  will be able to visit from time to time.

FOLK ART PAINTED FINISHES

+ PALETTE-STYLE FRAME  IN-SHOP PROJECTS

Faux finishes are a great way to give your home projects a touch of age and roughness. They can also add a bit of whimsy to your work. Whatever you want to do to your projects, they will always look unique and special with a faux finish you did yourself.

Creating natural-looking faux finishes can be quite difficult for the everyday crafter, but we have some exciting new mediums that make it super easy: the Folk Art Painted Finishes.

These new paints are now available in the shop! Ask about cash on delivery so you can try them at home. Call or WhatsApp us today to order: 050 104 7558.

There are four different finishes from this line of paints. They work nicely alone but they look best with their matching faux finish medium.

Try out the mediums with us through these fun projects we have come up with. There is one for each different paint finish for you to try. We will build the whole palette-style frame from scratch with you.

Concrete Painted Finish

We were surprised how much we actually liked this Painted Finish. Either dark or light versions can be used alone, but using them one after the other gives a more authentic look. This finish works best on rigid surfaces. It can be used on metal, plastic, wood, and terra cotta.

Rust Painted Finish

The Rust Painted Finish is one of the most authentic looking faux rust finishes that we have encountered. It is extremely effective on metals but it also works on porous surfaces just fine. We love using it over metallic paint to give a project the illusion that it is really made of metal. This makes a perfect gift for him.

A Whole Week of Crafty Fun!

While others went away for Eid holidays, we had our own version of a crafty stay-cation. We had a full week of classes with people eager to get crafty before school and work started up again. And boy, was it fun!

photogrid_1474385455122

Paper Marbling was in demand this week. We did it three times! It was a sibling affair for two workshops. It was Jad and Jasmin first and then Anoushka and Rian the next day. Two lady visitors from Oman, Claudia and friend, did the third.

photogrid_1474386457341

Our visitor from Oman also found time to squeeze in a Tissue Decoupage session after the first workshop. She did amazingly with this very tropical macaw and flowers pattern.

photogrid_1474386682306

While her son and daughter were busy with their Paper Marbling workshop, Archana had her Sospeso Trasparente Melange workshop at the other end of the table. Her finished plaque will be displayed in a spot where it can get the attention it deserves.

photogrid_1474384780433

We offered our Creative Camp from over the summer during Eid week. These girls kicked off all this artistic revelry with their awesome Mixed Media Tote Bags. Two of the girls, Silvia and Gabby, were with us for just a day as they were visiting from Oman with their mother.

photogrid_1474384889302

Sisters Nisha and Shreya and friend Jill show off their beautiful Creative Journals. They had too much fun creating the covers for this art journal with layers of medium and color.

photogrid_1474386011106

Shreya and Nisha, learned a super colorful technique for the first spread of their Creative Journals. They learned how to use a tissue collage as a base for their artwork and journaling.

photogrid_1474385748694

For the final day of camp, the sisters brought another friend. Noor was with them to create their very own Trinket Boxes. Each girl did impressively well, as can be seen with their finished projects.

As you can see, we had an amazing week! These projects are not just available for Eid holidays only. You can book for any of these single projects as regular workshops. You can also click on “Learn” at the top of our page to see what other workshops we have available all year round.

AFTER SCHOOL CREATE-IVITIES

There are lots of good reasons that your kids should get into arts and crafts. Crafts are a great way for kids to express their individuality and imagination; they learn a form of wordless communication that speaks volumes. Crafting provides a way for them to explore materials and mediums that they may develop a serious liking to in the future. Crafts help boost self-esteem with the sense of achievement that kids get when they complete a project, even more so when the project looks amazing!

Kids who have been crafting with us learn techniques and make projects that can be used later in school and at home. Creating something of their own also teaches them how to choose; the more say they have in what they are making, the more their creation becomes truly their own.

With all these great reasons to get your child into something creative, why not with our After School Create-ivities! Let your child explore the wide world of paper crafting, decoupage, stamping, and more!

PhotoGrid_1473331082257.jpg

Above are the first month projects that are great for first-timers. They will learn how to stamp, work with inks, two ways of embossing, working on canvas, and other fun ways to get started with paper crafting! Greeting cards will be present throughout the program so kids will have a collection of cards ready to give away at the right occasion.

 

photogrid_1473320218151

The second month projects echo the season with handmade greeting cards, a accordion photo album, a decorative frame with air-dry clay accents, and a decoupage monogram. Please bring 10 photos for the accordion album.

photogrid_1473322064193

It’s only appropriate to finish off a year with a handmade calendar project. This will be perfect for welcoming 2017. Of course, year and month printouts will be changed accordingly.

What do you think about our After School Create-ivities projects? We love them to bits  and can’t wait to see what how the kids create their own versions of our projects!

Sign up today and let your child’s imagination, creativity, and expression grow with us!

We tried out our Ramadan Lantern Buntings in the shop. We’ve become quite fond of it and it’s been popular among the local customers.

You can purchase your bunting kits from us at the shop and at our Table at ARTE. 

ARTE has only a few Fridays left before it breaks for summer, so don’t pass up the chance to come!
