Your Story

Dear Bloggers,I am still having fun watching Christy Tomlinson's online 'She Art Workshops' in fact I am up to number 2 now.
This is a mixed media canvas about my middle daughter Kirsty.  She has just turned 21 and went to Melbourne with a few lose friends to celebrate.  As suggested by Christy the memorabilia from the trip was included in the background.  Unfortunately with my continual adding of layers most of the details were obscured but as Christy says - I know they are there!!!

SheArt Canvas Scene

Dear Bloggers,
I've been getting my hands dirty and challenging myself with the SheArt Canvases I am making inspired  by Christy Tomlinson's 'SheArt' Classes.  Stayed up much too late last night doing this one and I am paying for it today.  Not as happy with this canvas as my first - but hey it's all a journey and I am having lots of fun and learning alot.

Fun with Stencils

Dear Bloggers,

I am currently having a love affair with stencils and I love the Dylusions sprays.
Here is a LO using the 2 together making a background.

Mixed Media Fun

Hi  Bloggers,
After my fun at Donna Downey's class last week I have been having a further dabble with Mixed Media. I watched Christy Thomlinsons SheArt Workshop on line and then I sat down to create my very own little 'She Art Girl'.  The first girl is my eldest daughter Amy.

Published in 'Stampers' Sampler Catchup'

Dear Bloggers,
Hi.
I had a blast from the past.
Several years ago I sent some cards into 'Stampington and Co' and they very kindly published many of them.  Now totally out of the blue - years later they have published more.  What a nice surprise.

Donna Downey's Mixed Media Class

Dear Bloggers,

I was very fortunate to attend Donna Downey's mixed media class and make her Poppy Canvas.  Donna was lots of fun and the lesson was very inspiring.  I also fell in love with Pan Pastels when she showed me how to use them.

Here is the Poppy Canvas that I made.



Here is a photo of Donna Downey with my friend Robyn and me.
