Lovely textured copper

It's been a while since I taught the Textured Copper Jewelry workshop but it was so much fun to share it again today. It's always interesting to see the kinds of textures my students discover. Always original and always beautiful.

Black Dimensions workshop

Yesterday I enjoyed sharing another hot summer day creating in the studio with this great group of women. We spent our day creating the Black Dimensions canvas. Lot's of texture to explore and objects to choose and design with. This is such a fun canvas to do and teach. These ladies did a great job.

More fun with pours

Yesterday was the second workshop for the Rings and balloons acrylic pours. It was so much fun that I had a hard time stopping. Well once I have everything out for it I might as well keep playing and experimenting right?!!
You can see by my students result what a great group they were and an inspiration to keep playing.

New Acrylic Pours workshop

If you've done Acrylic Pours then you know that is is quite addictive. I started out doing dirty pours and thought I would never get tired of them but alas I did to some extent. I still enjoy seeing the result when you flip the dirty pour cup but I've started doing a lot more exploring with it and other techniques. And through this exploring I discovered ring pours and fun with balloons. That is what my last workshop the other day was all about. It was so much fun. Just take a look at all the variations that my students created.

If you haven't tried pours before this is a great place to start and if you have done some this is a great exploration workshop. The next one is coming up Saturday June 22.

So much texture and colour.

   When people come to the studio to do the Excavating Layers workshop they are expecting to make a 12" x24" canvas. But more often than not they walk away with 4 finished pieces. 
   The first time I taught this workshop, at the last minute I decided that I would have them do some practicing with the texture layers and colours on 3 small 5" x7" canvas boards. To my surprise and the students delight they worked out so well that they ended up with 4 finished pieces of art at the end of two days. Sometimes they do similar styles on all three boards and end up with a tryptic and sometimes they try a variety of styles and end up with 3 separate pieces. 
   This weekends I had two wonderfully creative students in the studio. They did a great job on all of their canvases.
Charlotte- 5" x 7"


Charlotte- 12" x 24"

   I hope you are finding some creative time this Victoria Day weekend.

Gel Plate fun.

   I had such great fun this past Saturday teaching the Gel Plate Layers workshop. It had been way too long since I last found time to play with my gel plates. This group of ladies were wonderfully playful and creative.
    The gel plate had captivated my attention so much that I almost forgot to take pictures and when I did remember I only had time for a few. So these are mostly prints in progress.

   I am off to play with my gel plates now.

Junk Journal workshop

   This weekend was all about using up fun and 'junky' paper in the Junk Journal workshop. No paper is over looked when making this little gem of a book. I scour the house for interesting paper and often students bring some of their own. There was graph paper, ledger paper, maps, copies of personal art, scrapbooking paper, envelopes, magazines, old book text, recipes...... You get the idea.

   Other than a break for lunch this group of creative ladies had a busy day making their books. They all turned out so unique and amazing. It just makes me want to keep making more.

Do you have an excess of paper? What do you do with it?
