CJS 2016 with Birgit Koopsen................

This was a fun and interesting class. Lots of bright colours and (gasp) my own handwriting!!

But it was fun and very different for me as I like more subdued colourings in my work.
Doing the background was fun and messy with my fingers and getting those black drip marks was a little frustrating as I had no control over which way they went.

But I did it and I'm happy with the outcome.

CJS 2016 with Michelle Ward............

Creative Jumpstart 2016

I really should take on the motto "Don't judge a book by it's cover" as I had at the start of this lesson.
While it looked awesome and fun, I didn't have the correct products to do this as per the lesson, so used Glimmer mist, Bloom Spray and a Lindy's Stamp Gang spray. So they were all transparent and not solid colour sprays.

Now that I've finished it, I am happy with it and how it turned out considering my apprehensions.
I love the layers and how they take on some of the colour underneath and create new colours. I also love the texture that the sprays gave. The splotchy irregular shaped layers.

CJS 2016 (Creative Jumpstart) with Julie Balzar...............

Ooooooo! This was an interesting one.............................................

This was the inspiration............

And this is what I came up with...............

I really did enjoy that one, which I honestly didn't think I would.
It was pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me be more free and fluid with my marks and movements.

Creative Jumpstart 2016 with Rae Missigman........

Creative Jumpstart 2016 is an awesome class that I have signed up for again that runs for a month with awesome teachers that teach us so many things. You get a class every day!!! 
You will find all the details here:

This first class was Matisse inspired, and a class taught by Rae Missigman. Absolutely loved doing the background of this. Really not sure about the flower. Looks too perfect and not 'painterly'. 

I am looking forward to doing the next class with Julie Fei Fan - Balzar.
