Here are a couple of photos from my workshop today at Jerry's : Creative Collage Techniques. We had ten wildly talented and energetic women in the workshop. What a whirlwind! Loads of fun and all in just three hours! (Okay...maybe four) But a great time was had by all. We crammed all kinds of techniques into this short period of time! Thanks ladies.
Looking forward to our next creative session together! Hey, if you want to learn a few more tips and techniques, stop by tomorrow at the Raleigh store for my free demo from 1pm - 4pm. I will be highlighting our Nepal papers and Ampersand boards...
Wednesday, March 23rd, Heather, Christina and I headed over to the JC Arboretum and met up with some of the folks from the US Fish and Wildlife Services. We were fortunate enough to once again be asked to help judge the participants of the Junior Duckstamp Competition. Hundreds of kids from all over the state enter delightful pieces for this annual competion. The winner, "Best in Show" is shipped to the national competition. Thanks to everyone for their entries! It is always such a delight to see these pieces...
Here are just a few of the entries:
Here is one of my favorites! I referred to it as "The Tree Crasher"
And here is "The Best in Show"
This is done with the Lumiere paints, handmade stamps and black fabric.
So, tomorrow morning, Sterling Edwards arrives for the beginning of a three day workshop at the store! I know there are many excited students that won't be able to sleep tonight, just knowing they get to study with a really fabulous "life lover" artist friend of mine - for three whole days!
Friday night is our opening in Southern Pines at Artist Alley for the Carolina Mixed Media Art Guils "Take 25" Challenge! I'll post some photos of the pieces and event once I have them. (The entries are still a secret!)
Okay...now off to get into some trouble of some sort...???
