Anyway, I have half a layout sitting on my dining room table (which the cat has decided is its new sleeping spot) and I'm trying to get my behind back on that chair to finish it. Yes, I can.
In the meantime, I did my canvas mixed media class last night. What fun. I gave them a free for all - do whatever design you like. I wanted them to explore their creative side and not just copy what I had done. We got some pretty cool canvases. Each of them were unique and individual. The core lesson was the same though, teaching them to layer paper, using stencils, molding paste, stamping, rub-ons, markers and lots of paint. I think they were all quite pleased (and surprised) that they did have an artistic side to themselves and hopefully, that will give them the confidence to do work outside the box.
