“Abstract Flower Painting” with Dina Wakley

June 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Runaway is so pleased Dina will be returning June 8-9. For anyone who doesn’t know her already, Dina – in addition to being a Ranger® signature designer – is a nationally known mixed-media artist and teacher. Whatever she teaches, her love of art and of helping people find their own artistic center shines through.

I love everything about art: creating it, thinking about it, looking at it, and teaching it….I have been scrapbooking since 1995, stamping since 1996, and art journaling since 2004. I have kept a personal journal since I was nine years old. I believe in writing yourself down, expressing yourself, and making your mark on the world.
– Dina Wakley

Dina will be here for two days and will be teaching three different classes, including this wonderful abstract flower class!

I have recently started painting fun, abstract flowers, and I want to paint them with you! I’ll show you how I paint many different flowers and, depending on how much class time we have, we will create journal pages and paintings that show off our skills.

Students will need to bring the following:

  • Basic tool kit: Ranger® craft sheet, scissors, water container to clean your brushes, baby wipes, paper towels, paper plate or palette paper to use as a palette (or you can just use your craft sheet). You may also want a small notebook and a pen for taking notes.
  • Your art journal.
  • Bone folder
  • Ruler and pencil

A word from Runaway about the “official” stuff:

These is a new class that Dina hasn’t taught at Runaway before, and we already know there is plenty of interest — but we’re hoping to “stretch” our classroom space a bit to accommodate at least some of the folks on the waiting list. Sign up by contacting Runaway at (503)881-6270 or via e-mail at In order to hold your place in class, we will need your payment when you sign up (payment includes a $25 non-refundable fee). But we won’t ask you to pay anything until we have a space for you, so you can get a spot on the waiting list for free.

We will be able to refund the balance of your payment (excluding the $25 fee) for cancellations that occur before the end of the day on May 31.
