a new friend
i am certainly blessed to have the opportunity to share my love of creating art with you. for me creating is exciting, empowering and therapeutic. it just makes me happy!
Cheryl is giving me the space here to "do what i do." so browse, question and comment if you would like. i love to talk shop.
it is easy to feel alone in our artistic endenvors, but let's not. let's connect! reaching out to each other is key to building our skill sets and our courage.
recently, Cheryl came to my neighborhood (des moines, IA) and taught some classes. i took them all, and one class was to decorate a canvas bag. i love her style of teaching! for this class it involves looking at her example, learning about the products and then going freestyle.
for really intense color, i dipped my brush into the spray liquid and painted it on. it is a great way to get into the seams of the bag.
we all made pockets out of the cute canvas envelopes Cheryl provided in her kit. after stamping and painting, i decorated mine with gears and ribbon.
there were some charming resin accents i was crazy about, so i gave them a little silks paint to accentuate the details. it doesn't dry right away, but when the paint does dry look how cute! definately keep your eye out for these guys.
i love my colorful bag! i think the size is intended for a tablet, but it is also great for a journal and pens.i like to keep my journls handy and love when they can be haulded around in style.
thanks for checking out my art.
bump up your color courage and enjoy!
