I think I posted already about my Thursday night art class with Lorrie-Marie Jenkins. Now that I have a few seconds--let me show you what I've made so far!
The first project was called "Mind Full" and was a collage of pretty thoughts going on in one's head. Here is mine in it's first stage:
Then we students sewed the paper collage onto fabrics, added a frame and a few words to complete it.
It was great seeing everyone's different "take" on this project!
Next we started amassing the humble TP tube:
And began to assemble our thoughts, our images, paper and COLOR into a book with pull-out pages:
Adding embellishments and plenty of the magical properties of STABILO (my new fav word):
then finishing up with ribbons and twine until there was no more room for anything else:
And before we had a chance to catch our collective breath, Lorrie-Marie had us keeping the creative momentum going with this thick and glossy jumble of well-placed delights on Sheetrock:
Now we're all caught up to week four! Bring on the tea cans!
We played with foil and neat little things to add texture. Then paint, images and a waxed finish
pulled it all together.
I don't know what will be next in the last class, but I hope it'll have something to do with the fabric/paper transfer she showed us how to do:
I've also been working on some more of my beach glass jewelry and as soon as I can get in some more starfish, they'll be ready to go into my Etsy shop!
Lorrie Marie will be offering classes again in a few weeks so stayed tuned...
