Whew! Yesterday was a total blast with painty hands and painting friends.
The make-and-take was AWESOME…I was so busy I didn’t get any photos taken in the process…here is the aftermath…
We made hand stained papers (inspired by traci bautista’s methods) and folded them into a mini book (as seen in the foreground of this picture) The bonus was everyone left with some dyed paper towels to use in other art as well.
and of course Traci was here painting and hanging out. It is so cool watching her creative process. Darci dove in and painted along with Traci…
And here are some of the works in progress from Traci.
So I come in to the studio today and the energy is still buzzing with all the creativity from the past few days…do you think I could sit down at the computer and do anything that “needed” to be done? No, of course not…I gave myself permission to create…I prepared some samples for Thursday night’s class. We are working out of Laurie Mika’s book Mixed Media Mosaics and doing Image transfer Pendants and tiles. Here are some samples I made today…love love love them if I do say so myself…can’t wait to paint on them and add a glaze. I just discovered a product called fluxe…you end up with a resin like finish. It melts in the oven…very easy to use.
The piece in the foreground has this fluxe on it though it is hard to see. All of these are color image transfers onto white polymer clay. Too much fun! Can’t wait to incorporate them into a mosaic.
Ok, so maybe that wasn’t yesterday, today and TOMORROW..but yesterday, today and THURSDAY.
And as an added bonus…Linda Lubovich, friend of the studio and one of the new teachers, came in yesterday and taught a private class to Hannah because she can’t make it to the purse class on Sunday. Here are a couple of shots. It was heartwarming watching them work together and the result was d-a-r-l-i-n-g!! (there are still a few spaces left in Sunday’s class…click here to register)
Happy student loving her purse. Totally Her Style!!
And to be totally random and out of order…here are some awesome pictures from the incredible Juicy Soul Retreat on Sunday (day before yesterday)
The day was incredible…The ladies were lovely…what joy I am blessed with!
