Acrylic Pour workshop

   I think I may have become addicted to acrylic pouring. It's just too much fun. And it's great to be able to teach and do it with a group of like minded creative women. 
   Yesterday's class was a blast and I must of kept playing for over and hour after they left. It's just so hard to stop. Just look at the fun pours they did. Some of these are going to be turned into books.

First ATC drop-in day

Sunday was our first ATC drop-in and potluck lunch in the studio.

This year I decide to take a break from the ATC group I have been participating in monthly, for many years. It was time to make a little more room in my schedule for other things. But I have found myself missing it somewhat so I decided to make an ATC day in the studio. We had a great little group who spent the day make numerous ATC and had a yummy potluck lunch. 

Here are some of the ATC's that were created during the day.

I think the day was a great success and hope to have more in the future. So if you enjoy a day just for making ATC's keep your eyes open for another one coming up some time this summer.

Keep Creating!

More Acrylic Pours

I have now started to warn people when they come for an Acrylic Pour workshop, that it is addictive. Try it, I bet you can't do just one. Luckily in an afternoon class we have time to do two pours. They are too much fun!!
Here are the result from a workshop a few days ago. There were some great colour combos used by these students.

Gel Plate workshop

It was great getting back to Gel Plate printing again with this group of women earlier this week. Lot's of prints were made with a few being finished and a few still going to be worked on some more. The colours and patterns are always so inspiring to me.

Have you tried Gel Plate printing yet? If you haven't you really should. I've probably said it before but it is one of my favourite things to get lost in at the moment. The rest of the world can wait while I play with my Gel Plate!

Happy Creating!

Junk Journals

  Last weekends workshop was full to the brim with a great group of very creative women. We all made some fun and funky Junk Journals.
   They are so much fun to make and a great way to use up some of all that paper you have stashed away. I know you all have a good stash you want to use. This book is filled with just about any kind of paper imaginable. It may be small at only 6"x6" but it's chunky at 2" thick so it packs a good punch. 
   Just look at all this lovely. I should have taken more pic of the inside but didn't think of it until they were gone. They are so amazing inside and out.

I love seeing how all the books turn out so uniquely the persons style.

Next up on the schedule is Gel Plate Layers workshop on Tuesday April 3. This is a favourite of mine. It's always fun to have some Gel Plate printing time.

Keep Creating!

Acrylic Pours workshop

After a bit of  hibernation over the winter, I am back to teaching workshops in the studio. It's good to get back at it and my first one was great fun. I had a wonderful group of ladies for what was my first, of what looks like many Acrylic Pour workshops. I never get tired of watching that dirty pour spill out onto each canvas. Just look at all the great colour combinations.











I seem to be missing a few but I think you get the picture. So much fun. Bet you can't do just one!!

Happy Creating.

December creating!

December can be such a busy time. Do you find time to do some creativity at this time of year? As busy as it was I surprised myself with how much I was able to get done. Here are a few of the projects I got done this month.
Altered tin
I started a few of these altered tins last year so it was fun to get them out and finish them. The one above is my oldest son when he was one year old.  

This is made with a photo of my two boys and nephews from over 20 years ago.

Gingerbread house
Often in the past we have bought Gingerbread house kits to make. This year we couldn't find any in the store by the time we went looking so we decided to try our hand at making one from scratch. I think it turned out pretty good for our first try. 

Christmas card
This is one of a few card that I finished this month. You can see more over on Dragonfly Dreamers Monthly Exploration FB page.

How was your December. I'd love to see some of your creations. Share them in the comments or over on the FB group page.

Happy Creating!
Wendy
