Happy Pink Wednesday!! Did you think I got lost? I'm not lost.....just exploring! Exploring new art mediums and learning a little more about myself. So, what did I learn in Lisa Kaus's class this past weekend? I learned that coloring with water soluble art crayons is amazingly fun! I also learned that even though I may be taught something new, I tend to stay in my comfort zone. In this case, a light color palette.
Upon further examination of this point I realized the only time I really like bold color is Halloween and Christmas. And even then, I use an ample dose of white, cream and tarnished silver to soften it up.
One thing I really enjoy about taking classes is learning from other women attending the class. Just walking around looking at the other women's work I was picking up bits of knowledge here and there. I love to see what other women create!! This class was chock full of wildly creative ladies!! I came away feeling exhilerated and exhausted all at once!! There was soooo much energy in that room!!
Now it's back to the real world. As much as I would love to, no more playing with crayons for at least a week. I have bears to finish and Flourishes needs attention as well. My cake box will have to wait for it's last details until next week. I'm still formulating what I want to do with the top......I keep arranging it and rearranging it. It's acting a bit as dressing one of my bears. Sometimes it sits awhile until I come upon just that right finishing touch.
Oh, before I run off to work in the studio, I want to thank Lisa Kaus for opening her home and studio and offering such fun workshops!! I'd also like to thank Terri Brush for the rhinestone and silver pendant. What a very sweet thing to do for all the attendees of Sunday's class!! You gals left a huge imprint on this chickiedoodle's heart.....bless you!
Warmest Pink Wednesday bear hugs,
