lots of play, so little time.

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 :).



  1. WOW, how GORGEOUS this page is, so fully of YUMMY colors and textures. I love the flowers and the stamps for this page. Great quote to remember and live by. I like the denim and white also, looks FUN!! Glad you had a good time with friends and got to play in your journal!!

    I did go and read Julie's blog last night, what an awesome post and only 15, she knows more then I do. I checked out her blog and saw the challenge she's having, might have to give it a try. There is stacks of papers here waiting to be used.
    Enjoy your day! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Dawn!. She totally knows more than we do, LOL. Yeah, looks like another fun challenge soon, but I may not participating though. Great to read your latest post, fun times with the kids at the park. Hugs.

  2. Love the texture on this page! Did u use the Faber Castell's gelatos? I can tell u girls were really having fun last Saturday! Great work!

    1. Hi Nida!. Yup, they are indeed Faber Castell's gelatos (in between the green grass). But mostly I used Claudine Hellmuth's cute little paints :).

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day getting inky/painty with friends. Love your pages. You layer color like a dream.

    1. Thanks, Marjie!. {I'm quietly wishing I could dream in colors!}. Hugs.
