Such A Great Tuesday At Jan's!






What a wonderful day!!! Jan gave us a workshop on preparing a page in an art journal. We did painting, stenciling, used water colors, water crayons, water pencils, stamps, pens, etc. to get our pages ready. It was a stretch for this person with not much imagination, but the rest of our group did fantastic!

It was so fun to try the different paints and see how they reacted with spraying them with a little water or a little ink. Each one turned out so different and unique.

I asked all the girls to pick their favorite work of the day. Jan's was the heart. She used Gesso to produce the white contrast. Karen picked two...the bird and the horse. She used stencils and spray inks. Pinky did a background of leaves. She used leaf stencils and spray inks with small squares stencil. April used stencils and spray inks to produce the lavenders, yellows, and blues of her page. Mary used the bird stencil and some small squares and spray inks.

It was so much fun and the time went way too fast. We all seemed to love this experience together.

Thank you, Jan for the yummy muffins and great coffee. I almost forgot those terrible dark chocolate goodies...mmmmmmm.

DON'T FORGET TO SCROLL DOWN AND ENTER OUR 4TH GIVE-A-WAY OUT OF 6!!!
