One of my most favorite companies is Ranger - they have fabulous products, great designers and always a gorgeous booth. Here are some of their displays. I love how they do their color samples.
|Samples for some of their tools|
|New Patina Paints - these come in sets of three and are great for metal|
|Configuration box with new Ideaology casters - sew cute!|
|Another configuration box with a book|
|Old typewriter stamp and matching die - die makes a slit for inserting paper with typed text!|
|Love the displays throughout the booth|
Every year Ranger hosts a Designer Challenge. This year designers received a dress form and had to use Stickles and/or Liquid Pearls. The results were beautiful, imaginative and, sometimes, over the top. I only took a few photos but this shows the range of ideas.
The new product I'm most excited about is the Distress Markers. They come in the 36 Distress Ink colors plus a white and are water-based. You can stamp with them, do watercolor effects, color and lots more. They will be sold individually or in the set. There's a neat cylindrical container for storage too.
And I can't wait for Tim's new book to hit the stores! If it's anything like Volume I it's a winner.
Other new products include two waterbrushes - one is much like others on the market with a pointed brush tip, but the other is like nothing I've seen before. It has a wide brush tip - great for washes, backgrounds and larger areas.
Ranger has on board a new designer - Dyan Reavley from England. She has a line of gorgeous spray inks which are very intense and concentrated as well as funky stamps and some great stencils. Can't wait to play with some of these.
