Three of my girlfriends and I get together yesterday afternoon for a fun, 'everything goes' mixed-media play a.k.a. art jam @ Scrappingville store. It was ALL fun and no work!.
We played with gelatos, various Dylusions Stamps and heavenly vibrant inks, Claudine Hellmuth's acrylic paints (in tiny cute bottles), Dr. Ph. Martin's hydrus fine art watercolor paints and lots of beautiful scrap fabrics. We even watched along Julie Balzer's workshop and starting to get busy ourselves. After about 3 hours of play we continued with breaking fast together and what a merry evening!.
Here was what I made yesterday;
I had to laugh when my friend (Sharon K.) made a comment that my pages looked like Claudine Hellmuth's work. Well, I was enjoying Claudine's paints here (a little bit too much, maybe?). She has cute names for all the paints such as altered orange, painterly pink?, dash of red. So sweet.
I used little houses and quotes from Dylusions stamps. Drew petals with maroon sharpie. And stamping white gesso on black linen.
We had so much fun and decided to do this again in a fortnight's time (Saturday, Aug 11th). If you are in town, come join us play!. For our Muslim's friends you can too, join us 'breaking fast' after the art jam session. Lots of great food :).
