I have been doing a few classes this winter. I limited seating to 6 but am glad only 1 or 2 women have signed up. It has been fun working one on one with them. And getting to know people on a more personal level. I have made a few new friends along the way.
The classes have been a Memory Art canvas. It was fun to have someone to bounce ideas off of and to create something really unique to her memorabilia.

The Mixed Media canvas classes are all 2 day classes. So we have created gel prints and our peeled paint layered canvases. The next class will be to add a little more lightness with gesso to the canvases. Then using the gel prints to collage images onto the canvas and add a special quote.
Below are some of the beginnings ...

More pictures of finished projects soon ...


January ATC swap and some organizing

I decided to try a few swaps through FB groups of ATC - artist trading cards.
Here are four completed for a Washi Tape themed swap.

I wanted to add a small piece of film strip that I have in a small tin from Tim Holtz brand, So I began searching for this little tin. And as I opened more drawers and looked into more boxes ... I became slightly frustrated that I was spending this much time looking for it.
So I decided within 15 minutes to start organizing my supplies. I have spent just a little bit of money to get all these drawers and placing to store things. Now was the time to label and put like things together.
Unfortunately, I never found the film strip tin. So I had to settle with embellishing with a silver gel pen.

More organizing yet to do and hopefully I will find that little tin one day soon.
