It was so much fun. I had 12 people show up and was thrilled with that many. And I even have one man!! I had planned to take a lot of photos but I guess you know what happened...I got caught up in the class and completely forgot about photos. One of the women from the front office came in and took a few but now they can't find them. If they do I'll post them here, and I'll try to remember to take some tomorrow.
The first class was mostly about supplies and then we did a simple page, just scraped some paint onto the pages with an old credit card and then added images from magazines. I had some people who just jumped right in and started and then some who needed more guidance and encouragement. I enjoyed it and I think everyone else did, too. I know we laughed and had a lot of fun. I have several things lined up that I want to do so I don't think it will be tough for me to come up with ideas but if anyone out there wants to make suggestions please feel free. This is a beginners class so anything goes.
That little section on the bottom left was a picture of a gate but when I turned it sideways I thought it would be a good place to journal.
This canvas is about 12" x 36". I covered it with book pages and then brayered on some greens and blues. So far I'm happy with how it's going and I'll share it when it's finished.
Our painting group at Legacy Commons is going to have a booth at the local Senior Expo next month and we can each display one painting so I need to get busy and get something ready. The painting above is too big to go in the exhibit so I'll start something else very soon.
Lots has been going on and I've been super busy so once again my blogging has taken a back seat. I do have something beautiful to show you in the next couple of days...I got an early birthday present from my best friend, Gail. She always sends me such wonderful gifts. I'll share it soon.
